Goofs

The monarch's standard includes a quadrant with the Fleur Des Lys. The relates to the monarchy's French possessions. However this connection did not arise till 1066 when William of Normandy defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings to become William 1. So the standard could not have been that of monarchs of the Saxon times. See more »

Another Camelot film...
9 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The siege of the Saxons is your run of the mill Arthur legend, with a damsel in distress, and crusty old Merlin waffling on about Excalibur. Unfortunately there are several things wrong with the film which spoil what could have been a good stab (pun intended) at this genre. The acting by the bit-part henchmen is for the most part risible and amateurish and the editing of the battle scenes is sloppy, with a lot of death scenes re-used for padding. However the two leads in Ronald Lewis and Janette Scott put in a good performance of the rugged scoundrel and the Queen wrongfully usurped from the throne, and there are some entertaining comedic scenes between the two.

In general it's enjoyable afternoon fare and if you like your swash-buckling swordplay, jousting and pointy helmets you won't be disappointed.
