When Lancelot shows the guy at the beginning how to sword fight, and says "Give him a hand, he fought well," both of his arms are out. In the next shot, one arm is out and one is at his side. See more »

Lavish retelling of the Arthur legend may not be as compelling as one would hope for, but it still entertains in its own right. In order to protect her people and village, devoted Lady Guinevere (Ormond) agrees to marry noble King Arthur (Connery) who has the resources to keep her safe from lawless tyrants. Unfortunately for all those concerned, she also has feelings for bold wanderer Lancelot (Gere), which only complicates matters further when he becomes one of Arthur's knights. The kingdom of Camelot is also in jeopardy as the former knight Prince Malagant (Cross) threatens to conquer and enslave it for himself. Intense swordplay, enchanting set design, and three perfect leads make this a real treat to watch. ***
