A Beauty and the Beast story about a warrior poet man who feels unworthy of love because of his appearance.

It's absolutely no comparison to Cyrano de Bergerac - (1950 movie), so much so that I have to flag this as disliked!

A lovestruck girl makes a wish to enter into the world of a prince.

I'm forced to mark this as disliked if only for the fact that many many avoidable movie-quality mistakes were made: From dimness to grimness, this movie was not youth-friendly in the least.

Wholesome if you don't think about it too much, which is easy to do.

Soon to enter into a loveless marriage with the king, a common woman's only hope lies in a daring rescue attempt.

A classic movie of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love and miracles. This is a kid-friendly movie in the sense that the 80s didn't have kids who were complete pussies. There is hatred, danger, death and blood, and yes proper torture, and this is a fine family-friendly film.

The only flaw in this movie is the grandfather-narrator, who is terribly overdone to the point of distraction.

Tells the story surrounding the mythology and history of Redbad, King of the Frisians.
