While director Jerry Zucker seems to have been intent on dragging the film to the mushy middle, it's still more entertaining than most comparable Middle Ages-set movies.

Whenever Zucker stops piling on battle scenes as if he were directing Braveheart, his film casts a romantic spell.

Aside from casting Richard Gere as Lancelot, First Knight marches out as an agreeably intelligent, mature and well-mounted telling of the legendary King Arthur story.

Braveheart and Rob Roy told the story better.

With guys like Connery and Gere as your heroes, you don't need cheap tricks. First Knight is just slightly second rate as a result.

[I]f you tingle at the sound of metal unsheathing and the sight of flaming arrows whizzing through moonlight, you'll probably be swept away by this shining Knight in amour.

[E]very era has the right--maybe even the duty--to reinvent the Arthurian legend according to its lights, and so there is something instructive and entertaining about this version.
