Merlin * Steve Barron * 1998

DVD distributors have discovered the market for older films and (old) TV series which are sold cheaply. “Merlin” is a three hour epic about of course the Celtic wizard Merlin (Sam Neil). I got this DVD for only E 3,50 (second DVD half price), which is for the better, because the film is not really good. The story is a bit too loosely based on different Celtic myths about Merlin and King Arthur and the presentation is a little childish. I think “Merlin” will appear more to Harry Potter fans than to people interested in Celtic mythology. It is no boring watch though, but with a little effort, the result could have been better.
