Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mike Cummings
This adaptation of the classic Sir Walter Scott novel presents 12th century England in all of its chivalric glory, intrigue, and violence. Viewers who relish the whiz of arrows and the clang of swords will enjoy this five-hour romp through the age of castles and kings. The acting is strong, in particular the performances of James Cosmo as Ivanhoe's father, Cedric; Susan Lynch as the exotically beautiful Jewish healer Rebecca; Ciarán Hinds as Brian de Bois-Guilbert, the arch villain bewitched by Rebecca; and Sian Phillips as Eleanor of Aquitaine, the mother of King Richard (Rory Edwards) and Prince John (Ralph Brown). Filmed on the North York moors, and at five dimly lit castles in England and Scotland, the five-hour miniseries captures the aura of the age in every way, but of course the story is heavily romanticized. The combat scenes are realistic, although, for the most part, the production spares the viewer the gore of lopped limbs. The script, in modern British English, leaves little room for character development. For example, Prince John and Lucas de Beaumanoir (Christopher Lee) remain unflinchingly sinister throughout the film while Ivanhoe and Rebecca remain noble and pure of heart. But such flat characters are to be expected in films of action and adventure, and this production has plenty of both: swordplay, jousts, narrow-escapes, and last-minute rescues by Robin Hood (Aden Gillett) and Richard the Lion-Hearted. The only other major flaw in the film is the depiction of the Templars, a religious order of warrior knights, as unremittingly corrupt. Still, the film is a wonderful production that deserves more attention than it received when it debuted in Britain and America.

    A Fine Adaptation

    I greatly enjoyed this rendition of Sir Walter Scott's famous novel. Although there are some plot deviations, the series is well acted with fantastic sets. Steven Waddington plays a very strong role as Ivanhoe; champion of the absent Richard The Lion Hearted and fiancee of Rowena (Victoria Smurfit.) Ciarán Hinds gives probably the best performance as Monsieur De Bois-Guilbert, the evil Templar knight who's hatred for Ivanhoe is as great as his passion for Rebecca (Susan Lynch.) Lynch herself delivers one of the best performances as Rebecca, the Jewish healer who's passion for Ivanhoe saves the kingdom from the Templars and Prince John. There's even a brief appearance by Sian Philips (I, Claudius) as Elenore D'Aquitaine, the queen mother who comes to arbitrate between her feuding sons John and Richard. The costumes and armor properly depict the armaments and fashion of the 12th century. The series is filmed on location in Wales showing a few of the many medieval churches, abbeys, manors, and castles that dot its landscape. The film is perhaps graphic in violence but this captures the brutality of medieval warfare quite well. Alltogether a great mini-series that has more positive qualities than shortcomings. The story is fluid and the acting is excellent. Definitely worth owning.

    The Real Ivanhoe

    Of all the versions of Sir Walter Scott's classic tale, this one seems the most authentic. It's at times coarse and violent, but the characters are so well drawn that I was glued to the screen. Rebecca of York is more real than I've ever seen her, and Rowena is not just an overly made-up starlet, but a naturally beautiful, independent Saxon princess. This isn't a "chick flick" by any means, but the most romantic line I've ever heard in a movie is when Rebecca's would-be paramour, Brian de Bois-Guilbert tempts her with "I will buy you books." Sigh....
