Shadows on the Wall

Much more A Knight's Tale than Romeo & Juliet

The movie attempts a sort of documentary realism in depicting a period that is largely undocumented %u2026 but as was the case with the flat-footed King Arthur of two years ago, you may miss the magic.

It's so cheesy and corny.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

The legend of "Tristan & Isolde" happened a long time ago, so the story goes. And here it's retold as an average film that could have been worse, but could have been better, for the resume of director Kevin Reynolds.

The film's roots and execution are faithful to the source and allow the emotional and thematic complexity of the tale to shine through.

Boulder Weekly

A handsomely assembled non-musical version of the legend ... the chinks in the armor creep in with James Franco, all lathered up in a weepy soap opera performance.

January 19, 2006

It has action and intrigue, diabolic plots, a tournament of champions, and everything else you would expect from a medieval movie, but it has a tendency to over tell the story and needs more romance.

Do we really want less magic in our legends? And if these stories are stripped of their mythic aspects, are they even very interesting anymore?

[R]eally good, in all sorts of unexpected ways: it's stirring, sexy, exciting, tragic, and perhaps most surprisingly, genuine.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

The movie lacks style and pacing; Franco and Myles look too contemporary. They would be more at home with their romantic problems on some Fox or WB drama ...

Intensely romantic and artistically photographed, 'Tristan & Isolde' is a welcome quality release during the January movie doldrums.

Palo Alto Weekly

Arthur Reinhart's stunning images repeatedly isolate Isolde among the cool, gray expanse of natural settings. She's a freethinking woman at the mercy of powerful forces beyond her control, trapped in the wrong place at the wrong time in history.

Formulaic, often tedious re-telling of the ancient legend.
