Common Sense Says
Some violence in kitschy '80s sci-fi adventure.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Krull is a 1983 sci-fi/fantasy quest movie in which a prince must rescue his bride and his planet by doing battle with The Beast and his army of Slayers. Expect some mild violence: Characters do battle with swords, lasers, and light sabers. One character is stabbed to death, and another is impaled on spikes. A demon disguised as an attractive woman attempts to seduce the lead character. Overall, this is a classic of '80s kitsch of the "so bad it's good" variety. While there might be sentimental value for children of the '80s, their 21st century offspring are more likely to find humor in the special effects and outdated styles, to say nothing of a young Liam Neeson's mullet. This movie could be a starting point for families to discuss "quest" movies, as well as movies from that time that tried to copy the magic of the Star Wars movies and fell short.
