Legend, from director Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Gladiator), is a visually stunning fantasy-adventure in which pure good and evil battle to the death amidst spectacular surroundings. Set in a timeless mythical forest inhabited by fairies, goblins, unicorns and mortals, this fantastic story stars Tom Cruise as a mystical forest dweller, chosen by fate, to undertake a heroic quest. He must save the beautiful Princess Lily (Mia Sara) and defeat the demonic Lord of Darkness (Tim Curry), or the world will be plunged into a never-ending ice age.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Not even Ridley Scott's gorgeously realized set pieces can save Legend from its own tawdry tale -- though it may be serviceable for those simply looking for fantasy eye candy.

Common Sense Says
Dark and often scary '80s fantasy hasn't aged well.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Legend is a dark fantasy full of menacing and sometimes violent imagery that may terrify younger children. Actors in scary makeup and costumes play goblins representing a devil-like Lord of Darkness, who seeks to eradicate good and bring back a permanent winter of evil throughout the world. A unicorn -- the symbol of goodness -- is violently killed. Humans and sprites are attacked; one is hit in the head with an arrow. Some are carted off to be eaten. Brain-eating is mentioned, and one villain wants to drink a unicorn's blood. Expect some wine drinking. The words "s--t," "dammit," and "hell" are used. The Lord of Darkness talks of his desire for Princess Lily.
