Very dark and unpleasant fantasy/adventure about the Devil destroying the all-magical unicorn, thus giving him complete control over the once friendly world. Tom Cruise, in a very unusual role, stars as a forest-elf with long hair and pointy ears. Along with a band of other strange characters, Cruise attempts to put things right. The fact that Legend is somewhat enchanting redeems this otherwise wasted film. The set is too cluttered but is usually pleasing to the eye, however, the background music is absolutely terrible! Tim Curry is unidentifiable as the Devil. Watch only if this sounds good to you; I didn't care for it.
