SummaryAdd a Summary
It's got fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...but I've seen the movie often enough that it felt like the screen play with a lot of unnecessary bits and some flubbed lines. (Yes, I know the book came first.) Fun, nonetheless, tho.
