Beautiful sets, and a better than average story.
However it meanders a bit, and could have been easily trimmed down 20 minutes without losing anything.
Danielle unfortunately has a stronger character than the prince, who is largely reduced to a "I'm stifled by being royalty" cliché. Also, she was, what, 8-10 years when her father died? Could he reeeally have "taught her well" in the ways of swordsmanship by that time, and would she remember it all ten years later?
The gypsies were a fun new element, but didn't ultimately contribute anything to the plot. Overall the movie was fun, but a tad too modernized for me to fully suspend disbelief.
(But I'm sure YOU will love it! Please request it from me and give me credits! Ahem.)
