Newcomer Heath Ledger make his debut as a leading man in this medieval tale with a rocking modern soundtrack. While A Knight's Tale may not be your idea of a great film, the Superbit DVD version steps it up into a real audio-visual treat. Superbit is the latest DVD technology expanding the digital encoding process to utilize every available unit of space on the disc to maximize sound and picture quality usually at the expense of extras on the disc. You'll be able to listen to A Knight's Tale in your choice of Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS sound, the audio is digitally mastered and video is anamorphic in high definition. As expected, it is presented in Anamorphic widescreen format.

Like the other reviews say, a fun medieval period movie, with lots of action and great music. Doesn't take itself seriously. Just adding here that another really great movie in a similar way is The Princess Bride. Doesn't have the great music, but is also lots of fun. Cameo by Billy Crystal too.
this is a really complete movie, with: action, love, friendship, honor, bad, etc...it likes me a lot!!
Heath Ledger is such so hott!! I loved this movie so much. The modern times is so entertaining. A must see!
A lot of humor-not at all what you would think a 50 year old would like, huh? Well I have watched this three times now. And the music is just fantastic !
This is my favorite movie, I glued my eyes to the damn screen again and again- THIS IS A MUST SEE!
i love HEATH LEDGER he is the best actor in the world in my opinion any way yeah i love this movie and i love heath ledger to death 4 ever and always lol.
This is one of my favorite movies. It keeps you entertained with a fun story of a guy trying to make a better life for himself and his friends and ends up falling in love with a princess. I love the way it sets a modern story in medieval times. One of the most interesting qualities of this movie is how the entire soundtrack is full of modern music with artists such as Queen. One of the reasons they did this was to show that their music sounded to them then like our music sounds to us today. All in all, it is an inspiring story with a healthy dose of side splitting comedy.
A Knight's Tale is a funny movie. While it is not historically correct, with the music and some of the lines it is very funny. Heath Ledger plays William Thatcher, a peasant squire that pretends to be a knight so that he could compete in the joust. He tries to hid his true identity.
It's a good movie, and Jocelyn and her maid are two of the hottest freakin' girls I've ever seen.
I loved it the movies great in everyway the clothes the style the actors the most. Shannyn sossamon is the best any movies good if shes in it.
This movie is heart warming and fun. This movie was soo good i can't even begin to explain how good it is. You must see it.
A Knight's Tale is my favorite movie with Heath Ledger.I have only seen ''A Knight's Tale'',''The Patriot'',and ''The Four Feathers''.
You should buy this.
Adaptation of Chaucer's 'Cantenbury Tales' set with modern values, fashion, and music. Why set it in Medieval times then? Between people wearing lampshades and other modern garnments to seeing serfs dance to Queen and other modern tunes I just had to turn this farce of a movie off. Don't waste your time.
I love this movie. I don't understand why people don't realize that all the modern rock music is what the music back then felt like to them. In other words, the music we find stuffy and dull that they played then felt like rock music in medieval times. That's what the directors were going for. And the plot is awesome. Changing your stars. I think everyone should appreciate this movie. It's my favorite!
the movie is really funny, plot easy to understand, and practically no plot holes thankfully. its very funny and i laughed through at least half of it. the movie is remarkably accurate to medieval times except for the princess jocelyn's many odd hairdo-s and the weird ball music. a must see!
This movie was very fun to watch, and the music was great. It kept me lauging the whole time. Especially when Heath Ledger was learning to dance and then seeing him dance at the ball.
