Customer Reviews of Merlin
While Merlin the Magician is usually regarded as one of the major characters within the fables of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the truth is that both of them existed in entirely separate folk mythologies before their paths began to merge many years down the line, with Merlin bestowing upon King Arthur the powers that made him great. The Legend of King Arthur: In Search of Merlin is a documentary which examines the origins of Merlin, how he came to be associated with King Arthur, and how the myth of the magician fueled the tales of the real-life King
This made for TV movie, wields its magic with special effects, enjoyable performances, and a slightly different prospective of King Arthur from Merlin the magician's point of view. Transport into the world of magic, where a host of magical beings dwell, and see Merlin's beginnings and his desire to make the world of man a more just and better place to live. Merlin must also struggle to keep the promises he's made, while his adversary challenges his every move and jeopardizes his attempts to share a life with the woman he loves. Sam Neil, who plays the part of Merlin, and all the other performers, make this fantasy a pleasure to watch. Two thumbs up for this enchanting tale.
