Unless you are a fan of Spanish film, there's a chance that you aren't familiar with Fernando's work.
However, there is a chance that you might know who Klaus Kinski is. He played a supporting role in the 1970's Count Dracula film with Christopher Lee before taking the role of Nosferatu in a 1979 film. (and again in 1988)
In this film, a knight sets out to rescue a princess from a vicious and ferocious dragon. Most unpleasantly though, the dragon turns out to actually be an alien spacecraft.
I could probably give a better description than that, but I am choosing not to.
Okay, ... so, basically, I watched this movie because of the premise alone. I didn't know anything about it, but I figured, why not? I'll tell you why.
The princess is freed from the spacecraft and returns back to the kingdom unscathed, but divulges some unsettling information ... She is in love with the alien.
They opted out of actually showing us anything about how they possibly could have fallen in love, and decide that it was better just to skip that key-element in the story. That's where are pale-skinned alien-friend welcomes himself onto the screen and sooner or later, it evolves into one large distorted and incoherent love-story. It's filled with cheesy cliches and laughable dialogue. Actually, the funniest parts are the words that go unsaid.
Klaus Kinski doesn't speak.
He beeps and buzzes while his female-companion translates, which is just fantastic. I have no idea why they decided to go this route, but I am really happy that they did because it added a lot of entertainment value, for better or for worse.
The alien feels absolutely lost and confused about everything around him. It's like he just stares in awe while the Princess bitches and moans about everything that he says. Her character is just infuriatingly bizarre because of how stupid she seems to be. She keeps asking Boecius (Klaus) to take off his space-suit. He calms explains through telepathy that if he takes off the suit than it will result in an unfortunate case of death on his part. She goes ahead and asks him again, and says that if he really loved her, he would take off the suit.Geez, ... I don't see what he sees in her.
The film is an incoherent and distorted heap, ... and not the good kind.
I enjoy a lot of low-budget high-concept movies like this. I like a lot of Full Moon Features, for example.
Some of them I like because they actually have talented actors and a director that is willing to work around his own limitations. I'll give them a chance even if they don't look appealing because every once in a while, I'll discovery something that shows it doesn't take a high-budget to have an imaginations. It sometimes works out, and optimistically, if it doesn't, I'll have a "It's So Bad, It's Good" approach to it.
Star Knight is just bad.
