Storyline

Justin (Freddie Highmore) lives in a kingdom where bureaucrats rule and knights have been ousted. His dream is to be become one of the Knights of Valour, like his grandfather was, but his father Reginald (Alfred Molina), the chief counsel to the Queen (Olivia Williams), wants his son to follow in his footsteps and become a lawyer. After an inspiring visit to his beloved Gran (Dame Julie Walters) and bidding farewell to his supposed lady-love Lara (Tamsin Egerton), Justin leaves home and embarks on a quest to become a knight. Along the way, he meets the beautiful, feisty Talia (Saoirse Ronan), a quirky wizard called Melquiades (David Walliams), and the handsome Sir Clorex (Antonio Banderas), and is mentored by three monks; Blucher (James Cosmo), Legantir (Charles Dance), and Braulio (Barry Humphries), who teach and test him in the ancient ways of the Knights of Valour.

Trivia

The character "Sota" is inspired by one card of the Spanish deck, equivalent to the Jack in the international deck, from which Sota is given a very similar look. Also, the name of the villain, Heraclio, matches the best known publisher of card decks in Spain, Heraclio Fournier. See more »

What a voice cast! The rest - not so much
18 February 2018 | by neil-476See all my reviews

Justin, a young man in a world where knights have been outlawed, has his heart set on following his late grandfather into knighthood against the express wishes of his father.

This Spanish CGI movie has an extraordinary voice cast of top notch actors. It's a shame that the voice/lip movements mismatch so much.

The film looks like a videogame rather than an animated feature. It's not unattractive, but it's not what we've come to expect from a cinematic feature. And Justin himself is copied from Aardman's Arthur Christmas from 2 years earlier.

The story and presentation are mostly OK - lots of colour, action and humour. But the film has an air of being assembled by people who aren't 100% sure about how films are put together: the timing of gags is frequently off, for instance.
