It's full of clichés, the scriptwriters have serious daddy issues, the acting is ridiculously melodramatic, the mandatory catering to the Chinese audience is over the top, the computer has a female voice...and ...despite all of that, I loved every second of this film. Just the right amount of steampunk, fairy tale fantasy, dystopian science fiction, and deadly cyborg action. It's just nonsense and spectacle, and what 8 year old me fantasized about when playing with Lego and star wars toys.

So of course it bombed.

A decent score would have put it over the top, but it's not 1983 anymore, so Krull still reigns supreme as best fantasy film ever made.

I had high hopes for this because it looked awesome, every review has it as a bomb. So maybe low expectations will help it.

How dare you think something no one has seen yet may be good!

This is 'shade'?

And talking Pikachu are not nonsense?

Seriously, give Pikachu a Liam Neeson sidekick and a mystical five-pointed weapon called the Glaive and you essentially have Krull with the talking Pikachu.

Truth.

Nintendo actually came up with the idea for Pokemon after watching Krull. The fire mares were the inspiration for the fire Pokemon, and coming up with the other types just came naturally after that.

Krull inspired Earth, but it took millions of years to develop the proper Liam Neeson and technology to tell the tale.

You can't have one without the other.
