    After reading the initial reviews of this movie I thought it might be a bit of a turkey. However, I like these type of movies so I thought I would give it 15-20 minutes and see how it goes. Happily, it went well, I was hooked on the storyline and the acting. Clive Owen was fantastic as he usually is in these type of roles, Morgan Freeman, again one of his better movies, and the supporting cast all very well acted. The CGI was good but plot and acting outshone it, which is a really good thing in my opinion. I recommend this film to those people who like this genre. So please do not listen to the negative reviews to much, watch it for 15 minutes and then decide for yourself if it's for you.

    Decent, Stylish Action Thriller

    Last Knights is basically a direct-to-DVD riff of the Keanu Reeves blockbuster 47 Ronin, which was inspired by a true story and blended with the heavily fictionalized story-telling Japanese theater performances use. Last Knights, on the other hand, features very little fantastical elements, nor the sweeping scope and scale that made 47 Ronin so huge. The star power in Last Knights is solid, the action is stylish, and the production is impressive, but the movie isn't one that's very memorable. Still, for how cheap you can find it on blu-ray, it's worth watching and owning.

    What a well-written script with a story line! It yanks at one's honor, values, and trust coupled with action and mystery. The valiant men of this movie stood for so much good and needed to eliminate the evil forces that were taking over. Was good to see the main character get his revenge after he suffered so much degradation (as it seemed losing his mind, wife, and soul). I bought two more copies (they were only about $5.99) and gave them to my children. Loved it!

    If you can deal with a pretty typical Hollywood action flick, knowing not to expect anything phenomenal, and can still be entertained...go for it. Lol. I knew what to expect, so was not let down. I bought it because despite my pickiness with movies, sometimes I am just a sucker for the combination of action and the era of sword-fighting and knights! I said I would recommend it to a friend because there are many people I know who would like this movie...and many that would not.

    No new plot - good guys battle evil emperor and corrupt advisor. Morgan Freeman plays a moral noble who martyrs himself for his cause. His #1 knight (Clive Owen) takes up the sword to uphold the ideals of his master and his oath to his Order to avenge the death of his master - at his own hands. Despite the plot, it has a couple of surprising twists - Clive Owen's character's fall from grace and the ending.

    Saw this the first time on Netflix - happened to be scrolling through (last year some time) and saw Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman - figured I'd give it a go. It's incredible. I love all these medieval type movies, so it fits right in there and the ending?? Awesome! Can't give anything away, but truly worth watching at least once.

    My expectations were not high, but still I usually enjoy this genre a lot, but with this movie the plot just that wasn't believable, plus it was generally depressing through two thirds of the movie, and only fun during the first ten and then the last ten minutes, you could skip everything else.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Both Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman portray their roles as knights with passion and drama. The action scenes are well done and fun. My only regret was that there is a period mid-film where things become tedious as we watch Clive Owen brood over the death of his master and his role in that death.
