    Synopsis


    First Knight
    The tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is always ripe for retelling. In this rendition, the sexy Richard Gere is Sir Lancelot, threatening to supersede the aging King Arthur (Sean Connery) by winning the love of his young wife Guinevere (Julia Ormond). This update of the age-old legend succeeds on the strength of Gere's happy-go-lucky sex appeal, Ormond's gorgeous period costuming, and Connery's unbeatable wry nobility. The script focuses on the triangle of the three principals: the older man's reluctance to relinquish his love and power to the younger man destined to supplant him; the young woman torn between her loyalty to her aged husband and her love for his rival; the young man balancing the demands of loyalty to his sovereign with the rewards of true love. This beautiful production forgoes the legend's usual elements of magic and fantasy, leaving Merlin the Magician completely out of the picture. ~ Laura Abraham, Rovi

      'First Knight' did absolutely nothing for me. Considering the material the film had to work with, and the cast, I'm somewhat shocked it turned out as poorly as it did. Fans may want to purchase the more recent special edition which offers bonus material not available here.

      The absolute best version of the Lancelot story. Richard Gere, Julie Ormond, and Sean Connery make for an award winning performance of the midevil tale of king Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. I would recommend this movie to anyone!!!

      I had this on VHS originally so I was excited to finally get this on DVD. Just a great classic tale of Camelot, full of passion with great battle scenes. Love all the main actors.

      I have always been a fan of this movie. If you're in the mood for a chick flick, that also involves plenty of hand to hand combat, this is definitely the movie for you.
