Synopsis:
Ladyhawke follows Phillipe Gaston (Matthew Broderick), a petty thief in Medieval Europe known as "the Mouse." Soon after escape the dungeons of Aquila and the hangman's noose, he accidentally becomes entwined with the quest a pair of star-crossed lovers Attiene Navarre and Lady Isabeau (Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfiefer) to break themselves of a curse put on them by the corrupt and evil bishop of Aquila (John Wood).
About the Movie
Ladyhawke stands as one of my favorite movies. I tend to go towards fantasy as a matter of course, but this movie has strong 'chick-flick' elements in it.
But I don't care. Matthew Broderick is delightful and a little silly as 'the Mouse,' showing in this film, exactly why he's endured as an actor for all these years. Rutger Hauer, an actor I've always liked, did a great job as well. His portrayal of the cursed and grieving Navarre is believable in its intensity. And of course, Michelle Pfiefer, while not a scene stealer, certainly is nice to watch.
The story itself is the classic tale of star-crossed lovers (right down to the enchantment that keeps them apart), but unlike Shakespeare's classic play, the lovers get to have each other in the end. This is a true epic fantasy, with a good many original elements.
The first thing most people mention when they see this movie is that the musical score is out of place. I have to admit that that analysis is right on. The musical scoring for this movie was done by 80's band "The Alan Parsons Project." While generally, I have liked their music, the disco-pop electronica that runs through a good portion of the movie and many of the action scenes is out of place and poorly chosen.

I am not a fancy movie critic, but I know what I like and I like this movie. There are very few movies that leave a lasting impression on me, and Ladyhawke is definitely one of them. The story, music (no, it is NOT disco-medieval) and acting is haunting, funny, romantic and hopeful. This was the first time I ever saw Michelle Pfiffer and I remember thinking how beautiful and perfectly suited she was for this part. Rutger Hauer is absolutely dashing as a knight in black and they make a perfect pair. Matthew Broderick provides a wonderful balance of humor and support for the 2 cursed lovers. I have loved this movie for 15 years and it still remains one of my favorites. The location and scenery is absolutely beautiful. Like I said, I'm not some fancy movie critic, looking at every aspect of a film. But, I can say this: It was one of the best films put out in the 80s and I still recommend it to friends when the topic of old movies comes up. If you're a romantic at heart, you'll love this movie, I promise.

It's amazing how many people have seen this film even though it was never a critcal success at the box office. Ladyhawke boasts an outstanding cast (I believe this to be Rutger Hauer's 2nd best film next to Blade Runner) and an excellent script with an original storyline that many should find quite engaging. The costumes are first rate and the sword fights are the most effective I have seen in film to date (neither Excalibur nor the insulting First Knight were ever as effective with their fight sequences; it should never look like you're swinging tooth picks around; swords are heavy and fighting with them is exhausting; the director obviously realized this fact and utilized it effectively in the finale--excellent). Yes, the music score for this film makes you scratch your head. Nevertheless, there are a handful of effective emotional tracks that tug you in the right direction (and a couple that make you cringe).
Overall, a beautifully shot film, high production quality, and an original story. This is a first-rate film that should please most. This film never fails to impress me.

Format: VHS Tape
In this film Matthew Broderick playes "the mouse", a young thief who manages to escape from the dungeon and the clutches of the tyrannical Bishop of Aquilla. Broderick is saved from recapture by Rutger Hauer who plays "Navar", the former captain of the Bishop's guard. Michelle Pfeifer plays the hauntingly beautiful "Isabo" who loves Navar. Here's the catch -- the Bishop also desires Isabo. When the Bishop learned that Isabo was already in love with Navar, he fell from grace and made a pact with the evil one to place a curse on the lovers -- during the day Navar is a man, but Isabo is a hawk. At night Navar transforms into a large black wolf and Isabo reverts to her human form. They are together forever, eternally apart. That's the situation Broderick falls into.
This movie includes love and loyalty, deceit and repentance (on the part of the lovers' former priest), drama, a good sword fight or two, a touch of magical mystery, and, dare I say it? -- True love.
The soundtrack was developed by Alan Parsons (of the Alan Parsons Project). It therefore has a a somewhat modern sound to it, but Parsons works his musical magic to make it work with the medieval time frame. I think it's a wonderful touch to the movie.
Whether you enjoy medieval stories or not, this movie is well worth watching. It will tug at your heart strings and get you cheering for the unlikely heroes.
Great stuff!
5 stars.

So What's Not to Like?
Well, to each his own I guess, but I love this movie! The main characters are all bona fide archetypes, which is perhaps a tad self-conscious, but still very effective. The scenery (somewhere in Spain) was amazing, and whatever versions people are watching that are too dark, I have never had that... Read More
