Overview

The DVD release of Frederik Du Chau's Quest for Camelot contains a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Subtitles are available in both of these languages as well. Unlike most discs of family oriented films, this disc's extra features concentrate on the process of filmmaking. Two different documentary featurettes examine the animation process and the vocal performances. Computer animation tests are included, as are early pencil sketches for one of the musical numbers. An isolated music and song score can be accessed. Music videos for Steve Perry's "I Stand Alone" and Leann Rimes' "Looking Through Your Eyes" are also available. A theatrical trailer rounds out this excellent package that will interest both children and animators.

I had to give it 5 stars because it had everything: adventure, romance, and good songs! This is a really good take on Arthurian legend. I like the protagonst Kayley - she's fun. Besides Mulan, there aren't very many female fighting heroes.

I thought this movie was perfect. It had the right level of everything: romance, action, adventure, good music, great characters... I could go on and on. An age would love this movie! :D

This movie gets a lot of flack. And I'll be the first to tell you it deserves some of it (not ALL but some). But do I think there were enough strong points to make it worth it for people to give up 1 1/2 hours to watch it at least once? Totally. When the fallen knight Ruber steals then loses Excalibur, 20-year-old Kayley gets a chance to prove her medal. Now she's got to stay a step ahead of Ruber and get through "a place of untold danger," the Forbidden Forest. She's going to need help (whether she wants to admit it or not). And for Kayley help comes in 2 unexpected places. The first is Garrett--a young hermit who actually lives in the Forest and while perfectly willing to go after the sword is NOT very happy about having Kayley following his every step. And Devon and Cornwall--a two headed dragon who are happy to help but it's hard to say how much actual HELP they will be. Now this four-some (5 if you count Garrett's seeing-eye falcon Ayden. Oh, didn't I mention?) will have to work together to save Camelot...oh, boy. This movie was kind of a weird mix between noticeable faults and particularly strong points. The 2 main faults being: the singing and the romance (there are a few more small faults, most of which are common to animated movies in general so I won't go into that). The singing. Whoever was in charge of getting people to do the singing was never told that they needed to conceivably match the speaking voice. They were so keen on getting well-known voices it didn't even pop into their head. Sometimes the match was possible--or at least doable (like Steve Perry for Pierce Brosnan), sometimes...the match was just ridiculous (like Bryan White for Cary Elwes). Personally, I loved the music. And the voices chosen were great voices and they did great with David Foster's score...they just didn't always work as the characters voices. The romance. Was really adorable but seriously just came out of NOWHERE. I guess the writers thought it was so obvious that it was going to happen they didn't even bother to build up to it and just jumped to "they're in love now." Ok, admittedly sometimes a fast romance works fine (think Thumbelina or Snow White) but here it didn't. Here we've got 2 independent and equally stubborn people who have never given romance a thought. And the fact that they are so independent was one of the high points. We've got a strong female lead (not the same caliber as, say, Mulan but still good) who thinks more about becoming a knight then boys. Plus, usually when a girl is the central lead the main male character has 1 dimension and very little good screen time--not Garrett. He's probably one of the best animated male heroes around (right up there with Aladdin and John Smith); with a 3-dimensional personality and actually a lot of the best lines in the movie (another note: the humor in here is great. Got more than 1 giggle and smile out of me). So, like I said, it's not the best but it's still really cute and has some great music and characters. Give it a shot.
