Reviews

'Merlin' is oorspronkelijk als miniserie gemaakt voor de Amerikaanse televisie en vertelt het verhaal van de tovenaar Merlijn, die samen met koning Arthur de strijd aanbindt met de heks Mab, koningin van de duisternis. Het is een groots opgezet, magisch verhaal met veel actie en speciale effecten. De cast bestaat uit bekende acteurs, o.a. Sam Neill, John Gielgud, Rutger Hauer, Miranda Richardson en Isabella Rossellini. Brian Webster schrijft in de online 'Apollo Leisure Guide' : '(...) Those who are into swords and sorcery will find Merlin a spectacular feast. (...) If you're keen for a couple of hours of magic and sword fights, then this is your choice; otherwise, Merlin will eventually wear out its welcome.'
