As others have already noted, the Millcreek Blu-ray is a bare bones release; all you get is the movie. But it looks fantastic in HD, so if you're a fan of the movie, you should pick it up (and at an unbeatable price as of this writing). As for the movie, I watched it many times on HBO back in the mid-80's. Yeah, it borrows heavily from other, better movies. But I still think it's a lot of fun, with fantastic effects. The outdoor scenery is often breathtaking on Blu-ray. And James Horner's score is among the best for any fantasy/sci-fi film (even though it borrows from Horner's own Star Trek II score).

It seems as if this movie is the victim of mediocre reviewing. Yes, it is not your top listed science fiction movie ever made but then again, you can regress to that time when a fantasy movie got in to your head and made you think....what if?
This movie showed some nice scenery and better than average action scenes and well done music. If you have an imagination and a youthful spirit and are willing to let some fantasy enter your life just for the time it takes to watch this movie, you may just be pleasantly surprised.
It was nice to see a lot of nice reviews here too because I agree with those reviews. This may never be in your top 10 list of sci-fi but then again, for what is in it and what it offers, it is enjoyable and worth watching and is not your run of the mill sci-fi movie either. And finally, it is now on DVD with a very large amount of special features. Well done.

In a magical world called Krull, a mysterious dark magic fortress from space called "The Black Fortress" lands on the planet. A powerful Beast and his minions attack the planet, Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall) and the beautiful Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony) as they marry so that two rival kingdoms can be united in peace, that is until the warriors of the Beast kidnap her during the ceremony. Colwyn joins up with an unlikely band of heroes named Ynyr (Freddie Jones), Ergo the magician (David Battley), Cyclopic Rell (Bernard Bresslaw), Convict Rhun (Robbie Coltrane from "Harry Potter"), Kegan (Liam Neeson), Oswyn (Todd Carthy), blind prophet Sneer (John Welsh) and young boy Titch (Graham Mcgrath) go on a quest to find the missing princess and Colwyn is armed with a special magical five-bladed disc weapon called "The Glave" which he must use it to battle the evil alien armies and the powerful Beast.

Exciting and enjoyably campy Sci-fi fantasy romp is one of the cleverist and most stylish Sci-fi and fantasy combo movies around even in the 80's. It is basically an unusual fairy tale that plays like a cross between "Star Wars", "Flash Gordon" and even J.R.R. Tolkein, the film has became to become a cult favorite with some fantasy/Sci-fi fans and people who grew up in the 80's. James Horner's music score is quite majestic here, there's decent acting, good special effects, cool looking monsters and plenty of action. If you like a good old fashioned campy Sci-fi fantasy epic with plain fun then this could be it.

This special edition DVD has quality picture and good sound with cool extras like two audio commentaries, an interactive full length virtual comic book with soundtrack and dialog from the film, Trailers to this and other Columbia titles, featurette, and bios.

Also recommended: "Clash of the Titans", "The Dark Crystal", "Star Wars Saga", "Flash Gordon", "Willow", "The Neverending Story", "Dragonheart", "Excalibur", "Fire and Ice", "Lord of the Rings Trilogy", "The Spiderwick Chronicles", "Heavy Metal", "Wizards", "The Fifth Element", "Army of Darkness", "The Princess Bride", "Big Trouble in Little China", "Princess Mononoke", "Star Trek Series" and "Starchaser: Legend of Orin".

It is probably the best copy available for this movie from the 80's ! The bluray is not perfect (no subs available in any other language) but the image quality is really good at the exception of the very dark images of the opening... I was really happy to see again this movie in this very good conditions !!
