I don't agree that this a horribly bad film. People really do like to crucify this film and I don't know why. Anyone ever see Mannequin 2:On the Move, Aliens Go Home or Bats? This film surpasses all those stinkers. But I must say,however I can see where people are saying that it could have been so much more. Although Richard Gere is a fine actor, I believe they could have chosen someone who fit the role of Lancelot, a little better. Someone younger. Gere's performance also seemed a little stiff, and they could have chosen someone else with a little more spunk. Sean Connery too seemed out of place, although he is one is the finest actors of our day. He was much too old to play Arthur. Julia Ormond, however, was perfect for Gueniviere. She really was a delight to watch and brought a certain dignity to the character. Her classy acting and presence seemed to fit the story best amidst her misfit co-stars. I will agree however, that the costumes were a little off. The peasants were wearing costumes that seemed to much too new and nicely kept. The scenery, however was breathtaking and and theme of this movie is very romantic.It's no four star movie but common folks this movie was not all THAT bad. I give it a 7 out of 10.
