Off the get-go, be advised this movie has subtitles... I don't mind unless they are done poorly, but these seemed just fine to me.
I normally break down movies into pros & cons, but honestly, almost everything about this movie falls into the "pro" category... the acting was really good / story was good / special effects were done really well / even fight choreography was really quite decent / camera work was fine / audio was fine... there really isn't much I can find fault with this movie...
If you enjoy fantasy / adventure movies, this has to be one of the better ones I've seen in quite some time...
Cons ( and these really are minor ) - 1 - The CGI work on the "evil super monster" could have been better... It was still better than most stuff on SyFy and whatnot, but still looked fake / 2 - There were a couple of plot holes that had no explanation other than the movie saying "because I say so" / 3 - I really wish they had played off the "fairy tale" aspect of more of the knights... ie, a little more character development with more than just 1 knight...
Again... these are all minor complaints... the movie as a whole was 100% enjoyable... Two thumbs up from me... ( Would I watch it again and again? probably not or at least not right away... which is why I'm giving 7 stars instead of like 8 or 9... )
But... good flick.. highly recommend.
( Side note... I assume the Cumans were actually speaking a different language during the movie... thus they were dubbed as well as subtitled? I didn't mind, but some of the dubbing sounded a little out of place... )
