Strikes a good balance between action and romance in this version of the medieval legend.

Funciona principalmente graças à maneira eficaz com que retrata o amor do casal-título, que jamais deixa de soar convincente.
| Original Score: 4/5

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

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.

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

Rustic and lusty, Tristan and Isolde looks great but still feels less than real, as if the cinematic exaggerations actually diminish the central story.

A good romance with plenty of adventure to entertain both sexes.

I dub thee tolerable.

[R]eally good, in all sorts of unexpected ways: it's stirring, sexy, exciting, tragic, and perhaps most surprisingly, genuine.
January 15, 2006
Intensely romantic and artistically photographed, 'Tristan & Isolde' is a welcome quality release during the January movie doldrums.
January 15, 2006
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.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Tristan & Isolde, even to those who don't have a penchant for period piece romances. The movie has a lot to offer.

Stolen moments from other films abound but director Kevin Reynolds has clearly given the story and characters a life and identity of their own.
