Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

1995 had already seen the box-office success of sword-wielding heroes in Rob Roy and Braveheart when along came this glossy revision of the Arthurian legend, in which Lady Guinevere (Julia Ormond) is torn between her love for the noble King Arthur (Sean Connery) and the passionate knight Sir Lancelot (Richard Gere). As the story opens, Guinevere's lands are under attack by the evil knight Malagant (Ben Cross), and she must choose between marriage to Arthur and the security of Camelot, or encouraging the affections of Lancelot, who has heroically rescued her from a potentially lethal attack. Anyone looking for meticulous medieval authenticity won't find it here, but director Jerry Zucker (Ghost) keeps the action moving with exuberant spirit and glorious production values. Even if you don't completely believe Richard Gere as a somewhat too-contemporary Lancelot, the performances of Ormond and especially Connery are effortlessly appealing. --Jeff Shannon -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

The epic genre was still to all intents dead in 1995, and First Knight didn't do anything to revive it despite what should have been perfect casting with Sean Connery as an ageing King Arthur losing his queen to his new best friend in fable's most enduring romantic triangle. It's not a bad film at all - the action scenes are well handled, the romance better than expected and Jerry Goldsmith provides a fine score - but it's not particularly special, and in taking away the magical elements of the tale (no Merlin here) it's always in danger of veering to the ordinary. It's certainly no Robin and Marion, nor does Connery prove much of a Lion in a Winter with one of his weaker and less committed performances in what's little more than a prominent supporting role despite his top-billing (it was not a particularly happy shoot, and that does show at times). The real hero of the film is Richard Gere's Lancelot, travelling from village to village earning his crust with sword tricks, the actor managing to overcome what seems like his miscasting surprisingly well and showing real flair in the swordplay and action scenes as he initially protects and, naturally, falls in love with Julia Ormond's Guinevere, who seems to respond to almost every dramatic crisis with a slightly nervous smile.

Unlikely director Jerry Zucker (he of Ghost and, er, Airplane!) handles the romance and the action well enough, but he's not exactly got an epic vision, playing much of the picture in medium shot - long shots really aren't his thing unless they're establishing shots - which, allied with the decision to shoot in 1.85:1 rather than 2.35:1, makes for a less than spectacular look to much of the film.

This is a beautiful heroic fairytale film, in my opinion, which will never age despite what sceptics may say or think. It has a brilliant storyline and film cast. I've watched it several times and each time it gets my heart going! AND I intend to watch it again and again whenever I like, and enjoy it as if I was watching it for the very first time. Just lose yourself in the film and chilax!

Firstly, can I just correct "A Customer" who has a very low opinion of this movie.
Can I point out that it is supposed to take place in the 5th/6th century when Arthur was fighting the Anglo-Saxon invaders, so it doesn't take a great leap of intellect to work out that Arthur wouldn't have spoken English, so who cares about a Scottish accent.
Arthur would have spoken Latin.
So the fact that Gere has an American accent is also not really relevant.
Can I also point out that the Athurian legends are just that. Legends.
So you can make any statement about Arthur and nobody would be able to prove or disprove what you say.
This is a good, well acted, well directed action movie.
Buy and enjoy

This film is good for a number of reasons.
First, it has Sean Connery playing King Arthur.
Second, the script hasn't done what has been done 1000 times before with this story, but has taken a new, fresh perspective.
Third, it doesn't pretend to be a classic film, or to try and teach anything. It's just an entertaining piece of cinema that you can watch, enjoy, and not be affected by. Sometimes you just need a film like that.
My advice to anyone looking for an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours is to have a look at this. The price is right, and it's great fun.

This film is actually pretty good. It's not the gritty Arthurian myth like 'Excaliber' but it's certainly leagues ahead of the terrible, supposedly historically grounded, attempt 'King Arthur' with Clive Owen.

'First Knight' approaches the arthurian legend from a socio-political view. Camelot is a brave new world, a utopia, Arthur is it's founder - it's a psuedo christian/communist kind of affair with equality and morality and bright armour etc. Lancelot is a drifter, he represents a kind of Zen rolling stone philosophy. The two cultures meet and fuse for a time but it can't last. There are many interpretations and discussion points and the film succeeds in provoking ideas, which is it's success for me. The ending may well be a compromise but this is hollywood and we need happy endings. Look beyond the cornball and there are some interesting relationships here. Great cast but Julia Ormand is the real star - what ever happened to her?

An excellent upgrade from the standard DVD version of First Knight. Everything is beautifully visible in this tale of Days of Old when Knights were Bold...

What can i say? I love this movie! I'm a real sucker for Historic films: Braveheart, Elizabeth, Joan of Arc, but this one is my all time favouite! It wasn't really your usual braveheart really bloody historic movie. It has a bit of everything,romance, action, tragedy. I prefered this in films. The cast were prefect for their parts, especially Sean Connery as King Arthur, he portrayed it brilliantly. My favourite scene is the Gauntlet and if like me like a bit of action and adventure witha lil touch of romance, then this film is for you. I cant say this film is for everybody but if you are a real film lover and a lover of historic films, then this film is for you! Go on, buy it!
