      Monsol E Not exactly amazing, you've seen everything here done better elsewhere, but still a pretty fun watch. Good for bored fantasy buffs. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review robert p For it's age, it's a very good movie! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review christopher c. m The Saint George parallels is obvious. Also, it's a Roger Corman movie from the 1960s. So of course it's cheesy as hell due to low budget. But it's fun bad not painful bad. You can enjoy the intentionally humors as well as the unintentionally. So if you like cheesy fun, so bad it's good movies. This is a classic in that vein. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Imaginative and engaging and scary for 11 year old Blobbo who saw at show when came out. Plus, pretty Anne Helm much remind Blobbo Yvonne Craig. (Maybe have crush both.) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The Magic Sword is great fantasy fun! The special effects are good, the cast is great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I liked this movie it reminded me of some better made movies in that era (sinbad). I almost want to see a remake of this story with the special effects that we have available now. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Lockwood is dull and Winwood annoying, but there's no lack of imagination in the storytelling. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 9, 2019 Full Review Sarah Boslaugh PopMatters [Estelle} Winwood provides some campy humor (I kept thinking of Bewitched every time she was on screen)... Rated: 4/10 Mar 27, 2013 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media Kitschy knight quest is fun '60s flashback; some battles. Rated: 3/5 May 24, 2012 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Looking like a Beach Party movie with swords. Rated: C+ Oct 8, 2008 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Heavy on laughable special effects and outrageously broad performances...
