There are lots of instances when the same people die over and over. When Robert is being chased on horseback, the same archer falls off the same horse, on the same corner twice. Also, during the siege of Camelot, the same archers fall off the battlements two or three times. See more »
We're going to Merlin. He made for your father king; perhaps he can make you queen.
Now I know you're lying. Nobody knows where Merlin is.

I agree with most of the positive reviews above. But nobody mentioned the superb cinematography. It's so crisp, so clear, so focused Which is a pity as the blurred footage inserted from other films therefore sticks out like a sore thumb. The film reminds me of "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid," in so far as the actors are obviously garbed in costumes that will match those we see later in this inserted footage. And half the fun is trying to identify from where the inserts come: Alan Ladd fighting at Castell Coch in Cardiff is the most obvious. But if you're a student of architecture, you'd better avoid this, as there are so many styles all mixed up, but all post-1066. And all this and Laurie Johnson too!
