I have no fond memories of this, but I can say watching it for the first time it was not easy to get through. Mostly the terrible music (some kind of mix between a folk singer and medieval bard) but the story also woefully cuts corners. I thought the animated Lord of the RIngs was bad, but this was even worse.
