The Mists of Avalon Movie Review

The story of King Arthur as you've never heard it before -- long, boring, and from a woman's point of view. The Mists of Avalon, a TNT miniseries come to home video and DVD, focuses on the character of Morgan le Fey (here Morgaine, played by Julianna Margulies), sister to Arthur and enchantress in training. The film has reasonably good production values (though some of the costumes are on the cheesy side), but the performances are uninspired (and the dude cast as King Arthur is just wrong for the part) and the story is overly drawn out to its miniseries length, full of pregnant pauses, lengthy narration, and unnecessary exposition. Overall, it's just too tedious for any but the most dedicated Arthurphile, though I don't really remember the threesome scene in the original legend...
