Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Whenever Zucker stops piling on battle scenes as if he were directing Braveheart, his film casts a romantic spell.
Fresh: [E]very era has the right--maybe even the duty--to reinvent the Arthurian legend according to its lights, and so there is something instructive and entertaining about this version.
Rotten: The problem for him[Gere], and the film, comes when the non-physical acting begins.
Rotten: Pillaged of such mainstays as Merlin and Morgan le Fay-as well as magic, majesty and depth-'Camelot' has become 'Camelite.'
Cheese with pretty swords
I saw this movie a while ago. I hated it. I'm a big fan of this movie topic; fantasy, swords, knights and all that jazz. But this doesn't cut it. It's Merlin meets Highlander meets a really bad BBC Robin Hood movie/Show. I love Sean of course, but there's that can make Richard Gere a better actor so we might as well give up and move on. Julie did well, but Isebella Rosselini (Spelling) would have done a better job. The special affects are nothing to write home about, but then again this movie was made over ten years ago and so many have come after it making new paths of CGI and fight scenes available. I wouldn't rent it again and I certainly wouldn't buy it here or anywhere, but it wasn't so bad I would rather watch dirt move.
