This is a new vision of King Arthur's Camelot. A vision of battles, courage, of the undeniable love that brought an entire kingdom to its knees ... and the undying passion that made it live forever.

After so many years, this movie shows well. Nicely choreographed battle scenes, eye pleasing costumes and over all enjoyable movie.

There is no happily ever after in Camelot. That was the point. It looked ideal, but it wasn't. This is the worst of the versions that I have seen. Disappointing given the cast.

Yet another twist of the Arthur & Camelot story - there is no "grail thing" (darn ;-) - but I found it very enjoyable, both in action & romance vs integrity complexities. Albeit which were the only complexities, if we can call them that. Still- great acting, some fun and humor, good military strategies, a touch of feudal politics, all in a high drama but otherwise simple-plotted theme for a twist on that same old feel-good chivalry-based moral story.

Entertaining (family) movie. The characters didn't best suit the roles, but elements of suspense, drama, action, and romance were all present in this movie. "Knight rescues damsel in distress" theme throughout.

I was sort of enjoying this since I really like Sean Connery, but the pos disc froze at chapter 36 of 46 chapters. The library needs to discard a bunch of its junk.

Chivalry is not dead, and Gryffindor-types are drawn to stories that prove this point. For a max dose of chivalrous activity, check out First Night. Gere and Sean Connery in Camelot...enough said.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”
