Ignore VIEWER FROM NJ folks.
Willow has all the components for a fantasy story: a fairly long journey, myth, legend, a band of varied heroes, a witch, a dragon, trolls, and brownies...action, adventure, humour, romance...
For the time when it was made, it is great; as time passes, all your favourite movies will seem slip backwards, from a technological point of view. You appreciate a movie for what it is.
And while VIEWER FROM NJ mentions THe Phantom Mencace, which I must agree was tardy from every stand point, except the effects, he or she does not appreciate Willow. It's not that the movie is bad as he/she states; they just can't appreciate it for what it is.
It is not on the same epic scale as Lord of the Rings in terms of the books and the movies (after all, Willow is 1 movie, not 3). And unlike what VIEWER FROM NJ stated about "You gotta have plot character and the mythic element of the hero for fantasy to work and to make great movies on the subject", Willow has it all then some (see first paragraph).
See this movie remembering whence it came. VIEWER FROM NJ does appreciate that fact; also he/she seems to be young since they praised LOTR, saw The Phantom Menace then asked if there was "CGI back then". This seems to be the norm, for the younger folk not to appreciate and respect the movies from the previous years that has paved the way for the great (and unfortunately, not-so-great) movies of today and tomorrow. The dragon was actually done using a method called stop-motion animation; not CGI. There was more worked involved in this method - actual (minitaure) models were used.
So ignoring VIEWER FROM NJ review, borrow Willow if you can; I'm pretty sure you'll want to own it afterwards. Also have a look at Neverending Story (The first one), The Princess Bride, Legend, and Krull.

First off, this movie is excellent, you can see that from the 150 or so reviews. What really bugs me about this movie is that the DVD version has some serious flaws with the transfer from the original film. In the 'Escape from the Tavern' scene, there is a film scratch in the middle of the screen, from top to bottom, for about 30seconds. Elsewhere in the film you will find bubbles, hairs, and more of the scratching.
It took more than ten years for this to come out of OOP, you think when it did they would have it perfect. I find it funny how it says it has been digitially remastered for superior audio and visual quality. If this is superior visual quality, I'd hate to see what the non-special edition version of this movie would look like.

I've always felt that fantasy is just not my genre. But now and then a film comes along and forces me to reconsider by opinions. Willow is one of those films, an epic by the Lucas film industry.
The plot is that there is an evil queen (of course), wonderfully played by Jean Marsh who needs to find the baby who will end her reign. Pregnant women are imprisoned, and their babies are inspected. But the midwife who delivers the precious and sacred baby spirits her from the castle and sets the child adrift on the river. She is found by Willow, a little person with a big heart, who sets out on a trek to return her to the Daikini, the big humans.
Adventures, dragons, evil, sorcerers, battles, and magic ensue, and it's all accompanied by beautiful scenery (English and Welsh countryside), wonderful acting, and Ron Howard, a great director. Plus, there's Val Kilmer to enjoy, so what's to complain about? Nothing.

Following a stint as Opie Cunningham on the
controversial television show "Happy Days", Ron Howard
aimed for bigger things and decided to direct what
some have called "the best movie ever made ever." Yes,
I speak of Willow.
The Willowites are a special people who live by a
river. Their king, "Willow", travels the land with a witch-pig, a floating baby, a hot chick
whose name I forget, a Val Kilmer, and some other guy (with a beard).
There's fairies, violence, snowballs, dragons with testicularized jaws, villains everywhere. Fun for the whole
family. This is better than Lord of the Rings, Mazes
and Monsters, Time Bandits, and The Sound of Music -
combined! It's not better than The Princess Bride, but
they're in the same league.
...
This is the best movie ever made ever.
