Legend: The Director's Cut. This Ridley Scott movie takes place in a Fairy tale land. The land's princess, Lilly, is out visiting some peasants and then visits a boy who lives in the forest, Jack (Tom Cruise). They are sweet on each other. He then proceeds to show her something that's very sacred--two unicorns. She wants to touch them but he warns her not to. She does it anyway. And just as it happens a group of ogres shoot a poison arrow into it, which immediately plunges the land into darkness. These hideous creatures were sent by their master, Darkness, to kill these creatures of the light so he can then rule this land. His abode is in a gigantic leafless tree.
Some various types of elves visit Jack and appoint him as the warrior to get the unicorn's horn back from The Darkness. He's never fought anything before, so this is all new to him. Things get really creepy on the way through the Goblin land, when they first encounter a witch-like creature living in the swamp. Then they end up in some ancient cells and look to be the next thing on the dinner menu.
I think this is one of Tom Cruises' best roles as he hardly talks in the entire movie. It's sort of the equivalent of Kate Beckinsale in the UNDERWORLD movies. However, the actor that steals the movie is Tim Curry as The Darkness, this huge red skinned huge horned demon. The biggest difference between this DVD and the theatrical release is the different musical score, which gives it more of a "Fairytale" feel than the Tangerine Dream music. This includes more of the Princess Lily (Mia Sara) singing to Jack (Tom Cruise).
