Reviews

Review

Right up there amongst Romero's best work. --The Digital Fix

A compelling reworking of Arthurian mythology that neatly intersects with America's own myths of independence and the open West, delivering remarkable action scenes in the process. --AV Club

Ed Harris is Superb. --Digitally Obsessed

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful 3 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
This isn't a biker movie - the bikes are horses with engines, guys, so if you're looking for a biker movie, like the last reviewer, you'll be sorely disappointed. The cover looks like they're trying to sell a flick to an audience which won't enjoy it.

This is a film which takes dissatisfaction with modern life, pits it against authority, beats it bloody, wrings the tears out of it, makes it stand up again and ultimately turns it into something tragically beautiful. I can't think of a better way to spend my time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected... 19 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
Don't judge the film by the Trailer. This film is so much better than expected and a good attempt at something that shouldn't work. Mixing the medi-evil with motorcycles in an modern american setting works because of the overriding moral tale. Plus all the stunts and fights are brilliant, not to mention the bikes.

:D

Not to everyones taste, but was one I saw when it 1st came out on Betamax tape. ticked all my boxes back then, King Arthur & motorbikes. So when I saw it out on DVD, I had to get it to fill my nostalgia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but still cool cult classic. 29 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
First saw this when it featured on Alex Cox's peerless "Moviedrome" showcase on BBC2... the same place I saw countless excellent movies like "Repo Man" "They Live!" "Sid and Nancy" "Assault on Precinct 13" "Jabberwocky" and a whole bunch of others. All of them "cult" films from the wrong side of the tracks - beautiful, flawed monsters with low budgets and genre intentions.

This captures an American subculture - The Rennaissance Fayre - also captured in Michael Crichton's "Westworld." But more than that it is a commentary on the nature of "selling out" - then besetting the remnants of the counter culture, and the need to live authentically. It is an existentialist biker movie about an ertsatz Camelot with a genuine core - wonderfully performed by Ed Harris. See also "Walker".

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie 3 April 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great theme.
If you want a high tech special effects film, with actors who look good but can't act, and no real philosophy to it, go for something more up to date.
If you want something that really speaks to the heart and to the spirit in man, with one of the single greatest actors of all time (Ed Harris, of "The Abyss" fame), without any fancy trimmings at all in the special effects department, go for this.
I loved it.
Like Harris's other classic, The Abyss, there is a powerful, positive message, about what is most important in life, shown clearly in this film. If you think that chivalry and knights in shining armour are dead and gone, but wish that they weren't, you'll love this.
