Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

In this animated period adventure, the daughter of a murdered knight searches for King Arthur's magic sword, Excalibur, which has been stolen and is lost in a mythic wood. Adapted from the novel The King's Damosel by British writer Vera Chapman, it's hot on character but rather devoid of action. There's an interesting cast of voices, from Gary Oldman's evil Sir Ruber to John Gielgud's magical Merlin, and Pierce Brosnan is a very smooth-talking King Arthur.
