YMMV: Hawk the Slayer
  • Anticlimax Boss: Voltan is not very good at swordfighting.
  • Cult Classic
  • Ear Worm: The theme song is actually pretty catchy. Except that loud eagle cry at the start.
  • Hey, It's That Girl!: Yes, that is Magenta moonlighting as a blind seeress.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Fitzwalter, the Ambiguously Gay English dude whose buddy gets killed by the elf.
  • Snark Bait
  • So Bad, It's Good: A lot of people think that this is one of the best Sword and Sorcery films, if not the best before The Lord of the Rings got in on the action. It has silly string as a magic immobilization spell.
  • Special Effects Failure - Where else can we find a movie with silly string and bouncy balls as magic spells? your mileage may vary
    • Extends to the casting:
    Filmmaker 1: We need a giant!
    Filmmaker 2: My friend Bob is kind of tall...
    Filmmaker 1: We need a dwarf!
    Filmmaker 2: My friend Steve is kind of short...
    Filmmaker 1: We need an elf!
    Filmmaker 2: My friend Jeff is kind of skinny and can talk funny...
  • The Scrappy: The dwarf Baldin.
    • Although others think of him as an Ensemble Darkhorse for being the only character with a definable personality other than "likes to stare stoically at things" or "Unnecessarily hammy".
