Storyline

In a time now lost in the mists of memory, the great King Arthur rules in the legendary citadel that is Camelot. His Knights of the Round Table commit acts of derring-do and spend their spare time jousting, much to the delight of the local citizens and especially to Princess Ilene, a guest at Camelot. Watching her from afar is a young, inexperienced squire called Valiant, and when the young Welsh princess is sent home to marry Prince Arn, Valiant contrives to accompany her masquerading as Sir Gawain. Meanwhile, the evil sorceress Morgan le Fey, sister to King Arthur, has convinced the tyrannical Sligon, ruler of the Viking kingdom of Thule, that he should steal Arthur's sword, the powerful and magical Excalibur, knowing that its loss could bring about Arthur's downfall. So into the fray comes Sligon's unstable and psychotic brother Thagnar, who manages to steal the sword. Pandemonium reigns. But Valiant is having problems of his own - kidnappers attempt to steal away the Princess, and... Written by Helen Chavez

Well acted Knights of the Round Table tale.
7 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

Surprisingly good with quality acting, including up and coming beauty, Katherine Heigl.Adventures of a squire pretending to be a knight escorting a beautiful princess home,while the rest of England is about to go to war with the Scots over the stolen sword, Excalibur.Valiant and Princess Ilene soon discover that the Vikings are the true culprits in the larceny of Excalibur.Certainly won't boor you, but still has a predictable outcome.
