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

very good
4 December 2002 | by lidercSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this well-done movie. It is not too brutal, witty and has the right dose of humor. Besides it has a very good cast of well-known actors like Katherine Heigl ("Roswell") the great Joanna Lumley ("Absolutely Fabulous"), who is really wonderful in her role (as usual), and Thomas Kretschmann, who is, as usual, very good and very sexy. It is very well done by director Anthony Hickox, who made such movies as the classic "Theatre of Blood" starring Vincent Price, and his directing really shines through. The animated sequences are very well done and give the movie a really nice flair. The only bad performance that I could spot was the real short appearance by the rather silly (but famous) supermodel Markus Schenkenberg. But that couldn't mar this otherwise really good movie, its only flaw is that it is somehow too fast paced sometimes, otherwise I can only recommend it.
