A Fantasy Adventure that will be a Cult Classic
The screenplay was pretty entertaining. Written by Danny McBride and Ben Best, the story blends comedy with a little seriousness as a lazy prince trying to gain respect in his kingdom by helping his brother rescue his fiancée from an evil sorcerer and they did a fantastic job. One of the best things about the screenplay was it gave you the feel of a 80s fantasy film like Princess Bride and Clash of the Titans and I applaud McBride and Best on their screenplay and I look forward to more of their work in the future.
The acting I must say was not great but entertaining. The only thing I didn't like about the acting was they didn't pull off convincing accents of Ireland but other than that everybody in the film was fantastic. Danny McBride as the leading man was one of the highlights of the film as he does great in the lead role as he blends comedy and seriousness together into his role and he did a good job at it. Natalie Portman, straight of her Oscar win, was great as she brings her sexiness to the film and kicks ass just as good as the guys and makes her role entertaining. James Franco was also good as he kicks ass and saves the princess from the evil sorcerer.
The directing done by David Gordon Green was great, one of the best things about the film. Green again directs another great stoner adventure by capturing the landscape of Ireland and giving it the feel of a classic fantasy film and I can't wait to see more films by Mr. Green.
The visuals were another highlight of the film. The cinematography done by Tim Orr again proves to us Orr is a great cinematographer as he captures the scenery of Ireland beautifully and brings the feel of a 80s fantasy film and I applaud Orr for his great work.
Overall I give the film 4 out of 5 stars. Your Highness is an entertaining stoner fantasy film that definitely pays tribute to the fantasy films of the 80s and gives you a feel for that in this film. So bring your swords, your comrades, and bring your weed and get ready to battle evil wizards and dragons cuz this movie will send you on an adventure like no other.
