||An original screenplay
||Willow, a dwarf, farmer and wizard takes on the task of protecting a baby from the army of an evil sorceress and so embarks on a journey accompanied by a renegade swordsman, a witch in the form of an animal, and two tiny pixy warriors. They have many adventures as they travel towards the child’s destiny.
||Lots of set pieces, mainly involving swordplay and some magic. There is a love interest, but it does not go any further than fully clothed kissing.
||Now, in 2016, this creaks a bit. Back in its day it was quite major production but now it seems rather small scale, to the point that it is quite surprising how many people are killed. It suffers from the major production problem of having the set pieces go on for too long, hence the length of the film. You can watch it while doing something else.
