A knight’s girl is kidnapped by a witch who uses magic. The knight acquires a magic sword which will help him to rescue his love.

Or does it? Unlike yesterday’s movie, this one purports to have a plot, but once he starts using the sword… well, I’m not sure if it’s actually helping him much or just serving as a springboard for more special effects. Which is not to say that the special effects don’t have a charm; they do. I especially like the giant who appears and performs the actual kidnapping. The effects do come fast and furious, though, and it remains quite entertaining.
