«La Terra viene precipitata nell'oscurità grazie ai malefici del Signore delle Tenebre, che intende impadronirsene. Difensori e garanti della Luce sono due candidi unicorni, nella cui terra Jack, un cavaliere, conduce la principessa Lili, insieme con la quale sconfiggerà il temibile Signore delle Tenebre» (Vito Attolini).

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - «In Ridley Scott's Legend, young Jack lives in a magic forest populated with friendly and exotic creatures. But the delicate balance between good and evil is upset when the Lord of Darkness seizes Jack's beloved, Lili, and a horn from one of the last unicorns, thereby gaining control of the universe. The plucky lad must then assemble a band of elves and do battle with the forces of evil to set Lili free and restore peace to the world. Director Ridley Scott's lush fantasy film stars the young Tom Cruise as Jack, a peasant who lives in an enchanted forest with his beloved Lili (Mia Sara). One day, while quietly gamboling in a glade, the pair is distracted by the appearance of trolls, minions of the evil Lord of Darkness (Tim Curry). The cloven-footed, cavern-dwelling monster, long banished to the earth's nether regions, has sent the creatures on a mission to seize the horn of a unicorn, thereby plunging the planet into a frigid darkness over which he alone will reign. Things go from bad to worse as Lili succumbs to the forces of darkness, and Jack must assemble a motley band of elves to free her from bondage and return sunlight to the earth's surface. Sumptous art direction and overwhelming special effects are once again a testament to Scott's powers of visual invention...».
