Review:

I’ve been looking forward to this for months. It’s a knight in shining armor singing and everyone else around him sings too. I love musicals and cheesy stuff, so naturally this was right up my alley.

There were several things I liked and a couple things I didn’t. I thought the story dragged in a couple places. I was also distracted in the workout montage because Isabella, Karen David, was fighting with a foil and Galavant, Joshua Sasse, was fighting with a sword and I kept wondering if that was possible. Wouldn’t the sword be too much weight for a foil? It’s silly, but it distracted me.

Loved Karen David and Mallory Jansen’s characters. They’re both strong, opinionated women who are trying to get the best out of life. You can argue that they’re both damsels in distress, but they don’t act like it. Madalena, Jansen, is basically a gold digger, just looking out for herself, that has the king dancing to her tune. While Isabella is trying to save her family and kingdom by manipulating Galavant. I’m hoping the writers find a way for Isabella to save herself without depending completely on Galavant.

The ego of the story is Galavant and it will be interesting to see how he takes being manipulated by two women. Right now he thinks he’s saving them but when he finds out that he’s being played I wonder how his ego will take it? He completely lost it when Madalena left him for the king. They’re also already hinting at a possible romance between him and Isabella, but maybe they’ll go in a different direction? We’ll see.

3.75/5
