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.

The problem for him[Gere], and the film, comes when the non-physical acting begins.

Pillaged of such mainstays as Merlin and Morgan le Fay-as well as magic, majesty and depth-'Camelot' has become 'Camelite.'

Bad acting, dumb dialogue, and confusing cinematography abound, creating one of the most shoddy Camelot stories to date.

...lots of action and chivalrous pomp, but no magic.

[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.

I've never seen a film -- whether it was based on a book, a play, or in this case a timeless legend -- treat its source material with such cavalier disregard.

[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.

The movie is entertaining enough in its own way, and Sean Connery makes a splendid King Arthur, but compared with the earlier films[Rob Roy and Braveheart] this one seems thin and unconvincing.

There's swordplay to the hilt, but the story itself never quite gets in Gere.
