This visually beautiful and engaging story never ceases to entertain and I can’t remember one moment in which I glanced at the fast-forward button. I didn’t even look up at the clock. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s not one of those movies that will totally engross you with its depth and meaning, it’s just plain fun. The only thing missing was that I watched it alone. I wish I’d been with someone, because it’s the type of film that would make you turn every few minutes and say: “that’s pretty cool” while shoving some kernels down your throat. It’s got pretty much everything you need for a good time: a sympathetic hero, an evil bad guy, good looking ladies, funny sidekicks and more swordfights and jousts than you can handle…
The always-fun "Deleted Scenes" also make it in there, there’s 6 of them and they’re pretty cool to watch though admittedly cut for good reasons. Most of them are just explanations of things that happen during the movie which is too fast-paced for you to really care about, such as how William chooses his emblem…fun to watch, but I don’t really care. You’ll also be able a watch a 15-minute long HBO "Making-of" documentary which gives you really good insight on music, stunts and all the other goodies. All this is followed by a Robbie Williams music video, which intercuts clips from the movie and a medieval atmosphere into Queen’s classic “We are the Champions”. Robbie’s no Freddie Mercury, but the video has a real slick look to it. And last but not least, filmographies and trailers, which are a DVD standard and which like everything else, you access through an attractive animated menu.
