Plot: Lancelot falls in love with Guinevere, who is due to be married to King Arthur. Meanwhile, a violent warlord tries to seize power from Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. Runtime: 134 mins Release Date: 07 Jul 1995
I am proud to say this movie is among my top 15 of all time, along with The Godfather I and II, Shawshank, Amadeus and It's A Wonderful Life. It is not a "chick flick", nor is it an empty-headed Richard Gere movie. This movie is a compelling love triangle between King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot, while also being an exciting action-adventure involving a traitor to Camelot who threatens to destroy it literally and figuratively.Sean Connery is perfectly cast and superb as King Arthur. Richard Gere is often criticized as a poor choice for Lancelot because of his age, but come <more>
on! The whole story is a medieval fantasy. If Gere is 8 or 10 years older than he really should be in the movie, who cares? We're not telling a true story here. He seems a little awkward a choice in the beginning but ultimately gives a great, fantastic at times, performance. Julia Ormond is who really elevates this movie. She is stunning and radiant as Guinevere, the compassionate and brave Lady of Lioness. Every medieval word and mannerism she produces is believable.Action fans will not be disappointed as this film has some amazing sequences, especially when Richard Gere runs the gauntlet. Zucker really lets go in the battles, also. Ben Cross plays a great villain. The end of this movie is one of the more moving scenes I've ever seen. The performances by Connery, Ormond and Gere up to that point make what could have been silly or forced seem touching and beautiful. First Knight is a great and underrated film, not to be missed. It's a simple story that doesn't require a lot of analysis or understanding of folklore and mythology to enjoy. Give it a chance!
A very pleasing all-around movie is how I found this Knights Of The Roundtable-type story and a good one for DVD, even one that's been on disc for quite some time. For an early DVD, this was a real treat for the ears with some great rear- speaker sound. The story, however, not the sound, was the main appeal of this film for me.The three main stars in this movie were very appealing: Richard Gere as the cocky-but-good guy Sir Lancelot; Julia Ormond as Guinevere and Sean Connery, aptly cast as King Arthur. He certainly looks and acts the part, as does Ben Cross as the villain, Prince <more>
Malagant.This is a straight adventure story, too, with none of the hocus-pocus sorcery baloney who often see in these King Arthur stories. This is beautifully filmed with a city of Camelot that is awesome to view. Nice values in here, too, with - gasp - the importance of prayer mentioned. No wonder so many reviewers out there hated this message.This is simply a classy, great adventure and highly recommend to literally everyone who values a nice story that has values.
I love this movie!! Julia Ormand and Richard Gere don't disappoint in this medieval action packed film. Love, Honor, Action, Suspense. I have to watch this a couple of times a year, along with Princess Bride and Braveheart. Julia gives an outstanding performance, every expression she makes gives such depth to her character Guinevere. A Love story surrounding the tale of the knights of the round table. There are also plenty of swords and battles. Sean Connery rounds out the cast as King Aurthur, a perfect match for his character. Richard Gere plays an honest happy go lucky traveler that <more>
falls in love with Guinevere. This is the only action film with wars and swords that my wife will watch with me.
The Best Kind Of "Popcorn Movie"! (by alexautourdumonde)
I don't see why people are making so much noise against this movie. We all know this isn't a history class. We all know this isn't realistic in any way. It is NOT and it's NOT supposed to be! I've never heard people say : "The musical version of The Three Musketeers with Gene Kelly isn't faithful to the book". Frankly, who cares? If you want the true story, the realistic story, get a book or a documentary. What we have here is a true "popcorn movie", the kind of film you put in your DVD player for a nice evening of "no thinking, just <more>
enjoying". This is a Hollywood family movie, with 3 great stars, fancy costumes, beautiful scenery and great music. To me, this is some of the best entertainment! The kind of entertainment that cinema was invented for and that was so successful in the 40s and 50s. It seems to me that people today just can't enjoy that kind of entertainment anymore. And that is sad! So, please, stop complaining and just enjoy for Pete's sake! lol!
I honestly can't understand how this movie has been rated an average of 5.5. It's very well written, not the bigger than life tedious epic that movies of this genre tend to be such as Troy , but rather a simple yet touching story about the boundaries of friendship and loyalty.I can't say enough good things about Connery's performance in this film. Also, I looooved the actor that was cast as the villain, and even though Gere doesn't do wonders with his part as Lancelot I never did like American actors in British-oriented movies, Costner in "Robin Hood" was the <more>
exception , he certainly doesn't take anything away from this lovely movie. A very nice angle to this oh-so-familiar legend.Enjoy :-
Best Arthur/Camelot Movie I've Seen - Excellent Lancelot/Lovestory (by kdean-5)
Jerry Zucker is brilliant. I saw "Ghost" in the theater when it came out and it was my favorite movie for a number of years, and I eventually bought it on DVD. When I saw "First Knight" on video in the late 90's, I loved it and I eventually bought it on DVD too, and at the time I did not even know the same guy directed both movies! Jerry Zucker directed two of the greatest love story movies I've ever seen. I am surprised that "First Knight" has not been a bigger, longer-lasting and more talked-about hit. Not only is the relationship between Lancelot and <more>
Guenevere well done, but it is the best Arthur/Camelot movie I've ever seen. While it is not the traditional repeat of the sword and stone movie with Arther being the one main character, I think this great new vision of the story is brilliant. From an ordinary guy who watches a lot of movies: This one is great! Action, passion, fine acting and good chemistry!
A Wonderful, well-acted and produced escapist story (by tooter44)
I have watched this movie countless times over the years and it never fails to impress. Unlike lwjoslin, I don't purport myself as a historian. But then, the story of Camelot, King Arthur, Guinevere, and the rest are NOT historical figures in any true sense. They are all fictional characters in a fictional setting.So why write such a derisive review? To me, it seems clear that the reviewer is incapable of simply viewing this as pure escapist fare. He or she, but I doubt it most highly thinks very highly of himself. I hope that people were not put off by his diatribe. He, and those who <more>
may be influenced by his critique, need to remember that the entire story is fiction. It is not based, in any way, on historical fact. To make the comments he did, he must have forgotten that simple idea. It is fiction, and the story has simply been embellished in a new way.For me, this was a wonderful story of a wonderful time. It is a story which has been told many times on film within the past century, and has almost always been presented as a tragic event in an otherwise idyllic time. Why does he insist on tarnishing this telling by citing irrelevant facts? Do not be influenced by his trash. This is simply a wonderful, new twist on an old story, and it's very well done.Enjoy!
Exactly made as movies should be !!! (by onlynishank)
I am a regular Hollywood movie buff, and heavily rely on IMDb user ratings, before watching any movie than relying on any other sources, and I prefer to watch movies which are usually rated at least 7 out of 10.So when I had a chance to see the movie First Knight, I was in a doubt whether to watch this movie with a low rating of 5.6/10, even with great actors like Sean Connery and Richard Gere, or to skip to some other movie.Luckily I decided to give it a shot, and oh what a movie it was. I really love the medieval age and other historic movies, and this is a gem added to the list. As reading <more>
some other reviews revealed earlier, that this is an adaptation of Arthurian legend, and not a true story, so I didn't bothered about the facts in the movie.It scores really high in terms of acting, fight sequences, chemistry between actors, and especially keeps you engrossed throughout the movie. As a "movie", the story works well and has all the elements balanced.If you are a fan of historic movies, please don't trust the IMDb ratings for this movie. Just sit and watch this movie on a nice evening, and you won't repent it.
Julia Ormond is a treat for the eyes. (by chrnaess)
The best reason for me enjoying this film was the beautiful Julia Ormond. She is such a treat to watch that I can`t forget her. She gives a great performance and i enjoyed her. She shined all the way through.The scenes in the forest with Gere and Her was the best part and is what i remember most about this fine movie.Another reason is my liking was the adventure, these kinds of films often provide great setting`s and beautiful landscapes, First Knight provided it, especially the forest scenes were a treat for the eyes. The movie also contained fine music. The action was well staged and <more>
suspenceful.Maybe Richard Gere isn`t everybodys dream for the part as Lancelot, but i liked him, he is a good actor and his hair was fine. The movie also contained a good performance from handsome actor Sean Connery.
