After changing the face of science fiction cinema forever with Alien and Blade Runner, director Ridley Scott turned his visionary eye to the fantasy genre, teaming with writer William Hjortsberg (Angel Heart) to create a breathtaking cinematic fairytale with one of the screen's most astonishingly rendered depictions of Evil. In an idyllic, sun-dappled forest, the pure-hearted Jack (Tom Cruise) takes his true love Princess Lili (Mia Sara) to see a pair of unicorns frolicking at the forest's edge. Little do they know, however, that the Lord of Darkness (Tim Curry, in a remarkable make-up designed by The Thing's Rob Bottin) has dispatched his minions to capture the unicorns and sever their horns so that he may plunge the world into everlasting night. After Lili and the unicorns are taken prisoner, Jack must team with a group of forest creatures and descend into Darkness' subterranean lair to face off against the devilish creature before it is too late. Despite a troubled production in which the elaborate full-size forest set was accidentally incinerated and a lengthy post-production that resulted in multiple versions of the film (with competing music scores by Jerry Goldsmith and Tangerine Dream), Legend has since been restored to Scott's original cut and embraced by generations of film fans eager to see a master director's unique vision of a world beyond our imagination.

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Legend is still so much fun to watch. It's a visual feast, a truly grim fairy tale

     —Jessica Mason, The Mary Sue

A sumptuous, richly colored feast

     —Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

Tim Curry is magnificent!

     —Geoff Andrew, Time Out

Legend is a gothic fairy tale brought to life

     —Ed Gonzalez, Slant

The sets, makeup and photography in Ridley Scott's contribution to the fantasy cycle are awesome

     —Sky Cinema

Having seen Legend countless times (including it’s original theatrical run) on nearly every format I can safely say this release is the best way to experience all that good ol’ movie magic. I adore this f***ing movie!
