One of the Best examples of an alternative-interpretation of classic Arthurian Legend films ever made...with spectacular scenes of mythic lore to satisfy even the most imagination-challenged viewers...Strong cast led by Sean Connery in a role he was born to play with swept-off-your-feet supporting roles from Richard Gere as lusty Lancelot and Julia Ormond as glorious Guinevere re-defining one of history's greatest love triangles whilst allowing Bravery, Honor and Sacrifice to overcome their natural instincts summed up in a provocative and literate exchange about the essence of Love; "Your Heart chooses him," says a jealous Arthur, "but My Will chooses you", whereupon Guinevere responds, "and that is the Best of Me."...Memorable screenwriting including King Arthur's bittersweet "I take the Good with the Bad, I can't Love people in slices"...Fantastic action, evocative emotion and spellbinding story all combine to entertain both fine minds and soaring spirits regally for a Perfect Night...
Richard Gere & Sean Connery are two of the hottest men alive. Both in one move... This movie is packed with action from begining to end. It will also touch your heart as it is a love story about Camelot, the knights of the round table, Guinevere, Lancelot & King Arthur. I bought it many times before but never had it in DVD so that's why I bought it again. My children were all excited to see it again also. They are teenagers
This is a good movie showcasing great acting and a great story. Richard Gere is a drifter who wins over the king of Camelot, King Arthur (Sean Connery) with his bravery and becomes of the knights of the round table. Lancelot (Richard Gere)is tried for treason for his love for the queen but King Arthur is kild by a renegade knight and is avenged by Lancelot. In return Lancelot wins the heart of the queen and becomes Camelot's new king.
The movie have some of the best actors in it. You have Sean Connery, Richard Gere, Julia Ormond and Ben Cross. This is a new vision of King Arthur's Camelot. A vision of breathtaking battles, of heart-pounding courage, of the love that brought an entire kingdom to its knees and of the undying passion that made it live forever.
First Knight Again?
Sean Connery Richard Gere Julia Ormond
This dvd brings a new vision on Camelot. A vision of breathaking battles, of heart pounding courage and undeniable love that brought an entire kingdom to its knees and of the undying passion that made it live forever.
They did go overboard on the clothing not being historically accurate, but what hollywood movie stems for accuracy? The storyline is basic to the original, but I think they just tried too hard to impress by not makeing it simple.
