* BadBoss: Marquet, who replaced Navarre as the Captain of the Guards, throws [[spoiler: one of his underlings on Navarre's sword and getting him killed]] just for adressing Navarre as "captain".



* CombatPragmatist: Navarre doesn't mind kicking and punching during a swordfight, just like throwing knives or opening a skirmish with a crossbow bolt to thin the crowd.



* DarkestHour: Happens when [[spoiler: Navarre is sure Isabeau is dead and Marquet manages to disarm him, closing with a sword to finish him off]].

* RuleOfCool: The armour and especially the helmet worn by Navarre look great, but would be highly impractical.

* AnimalStereotypes: The guy who turns into a wolf is [[NobleWolf a fierce, loyal badass who can be absolutely vicious when riled up]], and the guy called "the Mouse" is a cowardly ActionSurvivor thief who prefers to hide and be sneaky whenever possible. Isabeau is fairly fierce and graceful herself. It's also observed in TheMovie that hawks and wolves mate for life ([[IThoughtItMeant though not]] [[{{Squick}} with each other]], of course) signifying the couple's enduring faithfulness.

* SoundtrackDissonance: Medieval setting with [[Music/TheAlanParsonsProject Alan Parsons]] ProgressiveRock music. It sounds even more unusual decades later, now that synthesizers have become very dated. Kind of a BaseBreaker.

The story takes place in a medieval France setting and starts with a young thief named Philippe the Mouse escaping from an inescapable prison through its sewers. Said prison and the lands around it are controlled by a CorruptChurch led by a Bishop who is none too pleased to hear of Philippe's escape (the prison is supposed to be inescapable, after all). The Bishop sends his soldiers out to kill Philippe, but just as they catch up with him Philippe is rescued by the mysterious Etienne of Navarre, who is accompanied everywhere by his CoolHorse and hawk.

Navarre turns out to have been the former Captain of the Bishop's guards, and he has a score of his own to settle with the Bishop. See, the Bishop was lusting mightily over a young woman named Isabeau, but Navarre and Isabeau fell in love and when it looked like they would escape the Bishop, he cursed them so that by day Navarre would be human and Isabeau a hawk, while by night Isabeau would be human, and Navarre a wolf. As a result, while the two lovers may be together, they are always separated. Now Navarre is looking to get revenge, and to use Philippe's knowledge of the sewers that lead into the Bishop's fortress to his advantage.

The film contains a number of both veteran actors (such as John Wood, Creator/RutgerHauer, and Leo [=McKern=]) and young actors who would go on to become household names (Creator/MatthewBroderick and Creator/MichellePfeiffer).
