Product Details

Product Description


This lushly produced fantasy has gained a loyal following since its release in 1985, and it gave a welcomed boost to the careers of Matthew Broderick, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Rutger Hauer. You have to ignore the overly aggressive music score (critic Pauline Kael aptly dubbed it "disco-medieval") and director Richard Donner's reckless allowance of anachronistic dialogue and uninspired storytelling, but there's a certain charm to the movie's combination of romance and heroism. Broderick plays a young thief who comes to the aid of tragic lovers Isabeau (Pfeiffer), who is cursed to become a hawk every day at sunrise and Navarre (Hauer) who turns into a wolf at sunset. The curse was cast by an evil sorcerer-bishop (John Wood), and as Broderick eludes the bishop's henchmen, Navarre struggles to conquer the villain, lift the curse, and be reunited with his love in human form. The tragedy of this lovers' dilemma keeps the movie going, and Broderick is well cast as a young, medieval variation of Woody Allen. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be releasd with some bonus features. June 28 2004
By A Customer
Just saw this movie the other day and loved it. Warners should re-release as a two disk set with new interviews with Richard Donner and the cast. I would like to hear how they made the movie and what they think of it, all these years later.

1.0 out of 5 stars ladyhawke review Feb. 26 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Because the dvd came from Germany it could not be viewed on my dvd player because the dvd was set up for a different region. So very dissappointing and a waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Italian LadyHawke?? March 21 2014
By gam
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This BR came from Italy. The whole package is in Italian. I have not opened it. I need to find out if is is English, and not dubbed or sub-titled. I need to know if it works in Canada. I was really really disappointed to receive these two BR from Italy. At this point I don't know what to do. Do I open it and risk not being able to return it? Is this the only BR available? Please help

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic movie that is delivered from Italy March 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First it is from region 2 and will not play on my Sony Blue ray player, North American region 1, but will on my laptop computer using windows media player.
Used an hdmi cable to connect to tv and enjoyed the whole movie. Audio and visual were very good. I will have to find a new dvd player
that allows for regional setting changes.

Rare to find now, I have seen this classic for up to $90 ,i bought this as a gift and considering it's the 80s still not a bad film.
I looked everywhere and found this online at Amazon,though secondhand it was sent from a rare DVD/CD shop, it was as described and received in very good time.

we have this movie in VHS and Loved it. Unfortunately when I ordered the DVD replacement it was in the wrong format...I haven't returned it...Perhaps DVDs should be highlighted in the format to be ordered...I will be extra careful next time I order ...My fault!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and now I know why April 23 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When the product information says region 2 and that it may not play in our area (North America), translate that to say it will not play at all and don't buy it.
