Richard Gere and Sean Connery star in the action-romance First Knight. The film is presented in both 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen as well as a cropped 1.33:1 full-frame version. The widescreen presentation looks grand with vibrant colors and dark black levels throughout. While a small amount of edge enhancement pops up once in a while, overall this is a very clean transfer without any major defects or blemishes. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English and is, to say the least, great. With bombastic sound effects enveloping the viewer and a vast array of Surround sounds leaking out of both the front and rear speakers, fans of the film will get a kick out of this mix if they own a home theater system. Thankfully, all aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are free of any hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround soundtracks in French, English, and Spanish, as well as Korean and Spanish subtitles. Because the film was so costly and bombed upon its initial theatrical release, Columbia has decided not to include a single solitary supplement on this edition of First Knight.

This movie is full of romance, action, and self sacrafice. It is wonderfully acted, and was filmed in a beautiful location. It is not suitable for children under twelve, due to the whole Lancelot and Gwenever thing. Thankfully they don't go all out like they do in Camelot. The worst thing they do is kiss. So it me, it is a wonderful family movie, that is perfect to watch with a fuzzy blanket, coffee and a special treat.

This is a wonderfull tale of King Arthur and Camelot. Sean Connery is great as Arthur so is Gere as Lancelot. The ending is fantastic.

A lackluster, modernized version of the Medieval tale. This budget production has both uninspired settings and poor costuming, as well as a simplistic script. Lancelot is a cross between a court jester and a country bumpkin, though given his sex appeal, and youth, who would not choose him over Sean Connery's middle-aged King, dressed in blue velvet over what seems to be a surgical truss?

A wonderful adaptation of the Arthur legend! Outstanding acting, cinematography, and score by screen musical legend Jerry Goldsmith. When Ormond and Gere are together, they burn a hole through the screen! The action shots with Gere are terrific -- he's Bruce Lee with a sword! Ormond is one of the true beauties of contemporary film! This is a must-see!

The King Arthur legend has been done many times as a movie, and I've been willing to see several of them. I had high hopes for this one, as I love both Connery and Gere. But I was disappointed in this movie as a whole. Connery was good (not great, as he usually is) but Gere was nothing exceptional, as he usually is. Certainly it wasn't the story, as the Arthurian legend is what it is. I think it was the combination of the screenplay, the lackluster performances, and something else I haven't figured out. There are better Arthurian legend movies out there.

This story has been told many times and this is a more quasi-historical more Celtic version filmed beautifully on location in Wales. Great performances. My kids liked at as much as Flynn's Robin Hood probably more. That's the picture this reminds me most of. My daughter and I watch this together at least once a year. Great family film, romance, right and wrong, tragedy, heroism, action. Fine acting.

As far as adaptations of the Arthurian legends go, this movie is not good at all. However,it is an example of excellent film-making. It had an almost old-hollywood feel, the cinematography is wonderful, and it is a really beautifully made movie. I was not so thrilled with Richard Gere, but I thought the other members of the cast were fantastic, and the ending has to be one of the best endings I have ever seen. So,if you can get past the fact that this is suposed to be a retelling of Arthurian myth, then I believe you will enjoy it.

FIRST KNIGHT: With the leading cast of Richard Gere, Julia Ormond, and Sean Connery, this had to be a #1 Movie... Plus the fact that I am fascinated by the Scottish-English-Irish wars and way of life in years past. These people are portraying our ancestors back in the old countries. Sad but true. An absolute MAGNIFICENT film!

The First Knight was probaly one of the best medieval based movies I have ever seen in my life. I thought that Sean Conerry did an extravagint job as king Arthur and Richard Gere probaly did a better job as lancelot then any other actor has done before.

A rather unimpressive adaptation of the Arthurian myth with a script adapted to modern voices and values. There isn't a shred of Medieval lore or chivalry in this glitz production. Gere, Connor, and Ormond deliver unimpressive performances that are rigid and without emotion. This has to be one of the worst versions of the King Arthur stories I have ever seen.
