Now that class struggle and Western literature have been debased, all that's left is the music of Queen - " We Will Rock You " plays whenever the tilting begins.

While this risk has its pay-offs and its flaws, overall, the film is predictable and clichéd, and I more than once had a feeling of déjà vu.

Shadows on the Wall

There's enough intelligent wit and physical goofiness to keep us smiling, and the occasional shift to serious drama, sentimentality and romance isn't too clunky.

the sort of film that junior high school students will adore... and then rent ten years from now and wonder what they were thinking.

The anachronistic music I can deal with. It was the sheer boredom that annoyed me.

It's an enjoyable romp and Heath Ledger is a likeably vulnerable hero and Mark Addy a good-natured realistic foil.

The approach may be highly original, just as the ingredients are familiar but Helgeland has fashioned a delicious new recipe from them.

Instead of pulling young audiences imaginatively back into the past, A Knight's Tale cheapens the process by demonstrating that there's no essential difference between then and now.

Like Shrek, A Knight's Tale takes its soundtrack from pop songs of today, but, not at all like Shrek, A Knight's Tale is insulting, boring, and sad.

The movie promises to rock you, and much of the time it does.

The result is half Python, half Ivanhoe -- and not as much fun as either.

As much a marketing ploy as a full-blown movie.

The jousting scenes are incredible to watch.

...this is the kind of movie that has no interest whatsoever in at least operating inside respectable boundaries.

A confused bore of a picture, intermittently entertaining, but bogged down by so many dull patches that it barely seems to be moving at all.

Ledger is an appealing hero, and the movie is harmless enough.

So much swashbuckling silliness, a romantic adventure film that tips its hand long before it reaches the final joust.

"A Knight's Tale" is a bold melding of a modern rock score and culture with the medieval jousting tournament circuit of the 14th century.
