Storyline

A group of British aristocrats, who call themselves "Knights of Avalon", isn't content with the system of justice and executes judgment themselves. Instead of just killing the people they believe guilty, they give 'em a chance in traditional combat. When one day Sir Grifford witnesses their sessions, they have to remove him too. His son and heir, Sir John from America, starts to investigate with help from Ms. Marion and Colonel Cook from Scotland Yard. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Medieval Times: Now with more death!
1 October 2008 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

Strange, I don't remember going to "Medieval Times" and actually see people executed. Nor do I remember them taking the body outside and throwing it on the street. Maybe somebody poisoned me.

In any case, this is one strange movie. And actually, it came off funny in an odd sort of way. There was a running gag with animals appearing at the desk of the man investigating the mysterious killings by the "Knights of Avalon".

I found it funny that nobody really did anything about it until the final showdown and the strange somewhat funny ending. The ending being funny because it was abrupt.

Overall, not your typical comedy with knights, but it has its moments. "C"
