The sword of Lancelot or Lancelot and Guinevere
20 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well they sure don't make films like this anymore and I agree with the comment this film rocks! The battle scenes alone were way ahead of there time with gore and spectacle. It was the first time I had ever seen a man cut in half by a sword. It shocked me! I saw this film for the first time when I was a kid and it has stayed with me through the years.

It has solid acting by Cornel and cast. Indeed when I think of the Lancelot I don't think anyone portrayed the medieval knight better. This was one of the movies that once you started watching it you where glued to the screen. A great period piece. If you have seen this movie and enjoyed Cornel's acting the films The Naked Prey and Gargoyles (a made for TV movie) definitely made a splash !
