Funny Spoof Of Arthurian Romance
3 December 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Previous reviewers seem to have missed the comedy in Star Knight, which I liked. Harvey Keitel's Brooklyn accent recalled Tony Curtis in Spartacus. The nurse cries out, "What if something happens?" I wondered the same thing watching Knights of the Round Table (1953), a terrible movie. In Star Knight the priest is a superstitious kook of Falwellian proportions; the villagers talk back to Klever and assault the count's herald with a chamber pot; the alien abducts skinnydipping princess Alba but can't make love to her because of his invincible spacesuit - even though the spaceship supports the the life of the unprotected priest just fine at the end of the movie.

Star Knight tells Alba telepathically that if he removes his armor and makes love to her he'll die - she pesters him to do it anyway. Typical star-crossed lovers.

I enjoyed this movie even more the second time. Keitel's scenes are hilarious. Star Knight isn't a great movie and isn't supposed to be, but it's pretty good.
