Recently re-watched Krull for the first time in years. I first saw this film in the 200X's (on the regular DVD). It's a great '80's sci-fi/fantasy flick.

It's sometimes difficult to combine the sci-fi & fantasy genres, but I feel Krull pulled this off well. I liked how the Slayers initially used laser guns, but then when they were fighting in close quarters, they instead used swords.

Also, visually it was interesting how the Slayers were in black armor while outside the fortress, then when they were in the fortress the armor was white.

The Beast was a horrific monster, and it was disorienting trying to figure out how large the character was (he was primarily seen in the shadows, a distance from the other characters).

And, despite the fact that the Slayers & the Beast were "aliens" from another galaxy/planet, they appeared more like fantasy "monsters" than sci-fi aliens, which I'm sure was intentional.

Great review - Thanks for the link.

I think one of the reasons "Krull" is so underrated these days is the combination of sci-fi/fantasy elements. I thought that aspect was great, but others may have been "confused" by the film because they couldn't figure out which genre it was...
