Bizarre. Campy. Dull.
In this film, an odd mash-up of the sword-and-sorcery genre and the sci-fi genre, a distant planet called Krull is invaded by aliens known as slayers on the day the Princess is to be married. These slayers are light-years ahead in technology, so fighting back seems hopeless, but Colwyn (Marshall), the Princess’ intended, is willing to go to any length to save his bride and protect his home. Alternates between inspired visuals and corny ’80s effects. The story isn’t compelling, and the characters get shortchanged.
