First Knight

( 17 )

Overview

The tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is always ripe for retelling. In this rendition, the sexy Richard Gere is Sir Lancelot, threatening to supersede the aging King Arthur Sean Connery by winning the love of his young wife Guinevere Julia Ormond. This update of the age-old legend succeeds on the strength of Gere's happy-go-lucky sex appeal, Ormond's gorgeous period costuming, and Connery's unbeatable wry nobility. The script focuses on the triangle of the three principals: the older man's ...

Originally ... released: 1995. 1995 release. From personal collection, NOT a rental. Close to Like New. In great shape! On the way to meet King Arthur, her future husband and ally, Lady Guenevere and her retinue are attacked by Arthur's mortal enemy, the malicious Malagant. Prince Malagant wants possession of Guinevere's land, which lies between Arthur's kingdom and his own. However, the daring Lancelot intercedes and foils the attack. In return, this roaming-sword-for-hire asks for a kiss from the lovely Lady--a request that Guinevere coldly refuses. They meet again when Lancelot turns up at one of Camelot's public tournaments, and proves to Arthur that he deserves to become the King's first knight. So when Malagant strikes again, kidnapping Queen Guinevere, Lancelot once more serves as her rescuer. But now, Guinevere's reaction is no longer chilly--and Read more Show Less

The script focuses on the triangle of the three principals: the older man's reluctance to relinquish his love and power to the younger man destined to supplant him; the young woman torn between her loyalty to her aged husband and her love for his rival; the young man balancing the demands of loyalty to his sovereign with the rewards of true love. This beautiful production forgoes the legend's usual elements of magic and fantasy, leaving Merlin the Magician completely out of the picture.

    Highly Recommended

    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.

    FIRST KNIGHT

    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!

    Disappointing

    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.

    A reviewer

    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?

    Brilliant!

    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!

    Wonderful family film

    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.

    A Mockery of The Myth

    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.

    A Good Medieval Movie

    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.

    Great

    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.

    the first knight rocked

    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.
