King Arthur's always coolBy Andy Simons from Folkestone, England , 03 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I can't believe this is the first review of this film! There's some great stuff here - swashbuckling, old school honour among knights, sweet justice and a bit of a love story. Richard Gere is extremely well cast, and Connery as always delivers the goods as King Arthur. Suitable for girls too.

Knights in blue drapesBy sallieseashore (7 reviews) , 02 Nov 2012The overwhelming thing that hits one first is the ghastly costumes. Is it Starwars or high opera????I feel confident that had the actors seen the costumes before they had signed the contract, they surely would have run from this film, fast.
I'm sure they would look nice draped on the cast of an Italian opera, but even the poor peasants had colour co-ordinated (blue) very clean drapes. The only person to rise above these garish adornments was, predictably Sean Connery, who has enough gravitas to obliterate the costumes and the dialogue.
Too longBy gianino (618 reviews) from London , 30 Jun 2012Too long and a bit too average at times. Some of the acting was poor; apart from Sean Connery the rest of the cast is pretty forgettable. Richard Gere is not particular convincing and Giulia Ormond looks like she is out of place. The plot is ok but nothing new; I mean this movie is not bad but I've seen better.
brilliant filmBy cheesekake (1282 reviews) from uk , 18 Mar 2012more of a romance than a historic film, but its still good.
defo one that all the romantics out there will love.
all star cast and lots of great action and brilliant stuff therein
The first knightBy Rosaline (7 reviews) from Hull , 24 Feb 2011This is a great love story and romantic. Great for men, women and children to watch. It has historical knowlege about king arther and the round table....but did he real exist.....I googled it to find out after I watched the film.
historicBy a customer from Whitehaven , 07 Jun 2009Good script and mostly talking about the history did like the effects and plus the costumes and can be watched with family members.
