Storyline

This is the story an amusement park employee named Jamal Walker who is magically transported back to medieval times in 14th-century England. There, Jamal meets Sir Knolte, a dissolute knight, before he stumbles into the court of the usurper King Leo. Jamal is impressed by what he thinks is the realism of the theme park; only after witnessing a gory beheading does he realize, with horror, where he really is. Jamal encounters the beautiful Victoria who is scheming to return the queen to the throne, and falls afoul of the evil Sir Percival. Joining forces with Sir Knolte and Victoria, Jamal teaches the rebels some helpful football, golfing, and boxing moves, before he dons the armor of the awesome "Black Knight"!

Not a bad film.
11 November 2006 | by rjames-11See all my reviews

This film isn't fantastic, but it is far from dismal as many people here have made it out to be.

Sure, the premise of the movie is silly, but most of these types of comedy movies are. The film is entertaining and Martin Lawrence shows his comedic talent again.

If you think this film deserves one or two stars, you probably haven't seen enough movies. For a true 1-star film, go see "Going Overboard" with Adam Sandler---I bet you won't be able to watch it until the end.

Black Knight is a pretty good film and I recommend you see it if you get the chance.
