March 1, 2007
You watch this benumbed retelling of the ancient legend thinking, "This, too, shall pass."
December 18, 2006
Strikes a good balance between action and romance in this version of the medieval legend.
November 27, 2006
No Wagner libretto and not much depth or soul.

[Tristan and Isolde] moves so sluggishly that someone must have been dosing the cast and crew with Nyquil.

Tristan & Isolde isn't the sort of film you'd go out of your way for, but you could certainly do a lot worse.

one of those movies you keep in that special shelf, to watch them when you're ready to kill yourself, just to make sure you made the right decision

June 29, 2006
A movie in which all necessities are captured in two hours of ambitious celluloid, except for one critical anchoring piece: a heart.

Funciona principalmente graças à maneira eficaz com que retrata o amor do casal-título, que jamais deixa de soar convincente.

May 12, 2006
The production is grimy and listless, without any color to be seen, literal or figurative -- not even those little red dots meant to deter piracy. But then, there's not much danger of that.

May 8, 2006
A strong visual style and a violent streak only partially undone by the PG-13 rating.

May 6, 2006
Fans of historical epics will find much to like in the costuming, battle sequences and cinematography, but the love story itself is underdeveloped.

May 6, 2006
The two leads, James Franco and Sophia Myles, generate a modicum of chemistry, despite being penned in by a clunky script.

May 6, 2006
Pretty and rather dull.
May 6, 2006
By removing the sorcery and operatic excess so synonymous with the story, the filmmakers conjure an affecting, pretty melodrama... with the emphasis more on mellow than drama.

A compelling story washed down for a film that's likely only appeal to pre-teen girls.

Unlike Franco's mop, no amount of teasing can keep this romance from falling flat.

Swords clank, star-crossed lovers yearn, yadda yadda yadda.

April 21, 2006
Frequently rubbish but nonetheless enjoyable swashbuckler, despite a tendency to take itself a bit too seriously. More fun than King Arthur.

March 10, 2006
Rustic and lusty, Tristan and Isolde looks great but still feels less than real, as if the cinematic exaggerations actually diminish the central story.
February 15, 2006
A legendary love story set amidst violent clashes between English warlords and an Irish king fails to impress.
