Notable for many reasons, including the use of dwarf actors as major characters, as well as one of the breakout films for Val Kilmer (who played the JerkWithAHeartOfGold Madmartigan). Despite performing poorly at the box office it quickly became quite a cult film, if the books were any indication. The current reception is that it is a fun, enjoyable story with some great casting, was very well made for its time, and still holds up well today.

* CassandraTruth / IgnoredExpert: Bavmorda has a soothsayer advisor who says visions predict that Sorsha will betray her; Bavmorda scoffs, telling him she trusts Sorsha's loyalty more than she trusts his. When his predictions come true, she acknowledges he was right, but [[CassandraDidIt kills him in a fit of rage.]]

* SecretTestOfCharacter: How the High Aldwin picks his apprentices. They're lined up in a row, and one by one, they're told to pick which of his upraised fingers has the power to control the world. Even Willow fails the test after noticably hesitating to make his selection, and before he leaves with Elora Danan, he confides that his first impulse was to pick his own finger, which turns out to be the correct answer.

*** Then again, to be fair to Willow, it was likely only the sudden appearance of the Eborsisk that prevented him and Madmartigan from being overrun by the bad guys sooner, letting them hold out until Airk showed up with his men.
