"This is an odd double feature. It is one disc with both films. Usually these double features have a separate disc for each film. Naturally, there is no room for any special features. There are no trailers, subtitles, alyrtnate languages, etc. There is a menu, but after 10 seconds or so it simply plays the first film. With no intervention,the disc will cycle though menu and first film repeatedly.
And the first film is rather silly. The hero wanders around gathering jewels to stuff in his pendant. When the pendant is full, he can defeat the dragon. Marc Singer is old warrior helping out the hero. He really hams it up. None of the other actors will win any awards either. The CGI is not real bad, but it is second class. I sat through the movie once, but I doubt that I will watch it again.
The second film is better. This is the story of the origin of Merlin, except that it takes quite a few liberties with the usual story. Jürgen Prochnow stars as Merlin's mentor. I never heard of the other actors, but at least I don't wince as I call them actors. I don't expect many awards here either, but everyone did a decent job. The film was made by The Asylum, but it is more intelligent than some other Asylum projects I have seen. Also it is just a PG film, not enough sex or violence is present to bump it up to PG-13 (as with other Asylum projects). This is the better film of the pair, and yes, I might just watch it again sometime."
