Tristan & Isolde Reviews

This is easily the best Arthurian film (exempting Boorman's classic Excalber), as well as a wonderful historical romance. It combines riveting fight scenes (the tournament action is very well done), suspenseful action, and a compelling love story. For those who know the medieval literary versions, Hollywood improves on the story (how rare is that!), making sense of elements in Malory's famous tale that were inscrutable and updating elements of the Beroul/Thomas love story to fit a modern audience's tastes. Mark emerges as a truly admirable chivalrous king (What only King Arthur achieves in the medieval originals), while minor figures within the court take up the villain's role, plotting destruction of Tristan and the exposure of Isolde. Sets are gorgeous and the cinematography hasn't lost any of its appeal in the years since this was first released.

A little more action packed and violent than thought, and went more the way of Romeo and Juliet than expected. But interesting.

First saw it on TV. Really liked it. Tried to find a Blue-Ray copy but couldn't. Had to settle for a 4x3 DVD. I now have a 16x9 DVD but I am still looking for a Blue-Ray copy.

Starts off strong, but gets more dull and boring as it goes on

Not a bad movie. Mostly a love story but had some good action scenes. Good rental.

The beginning is slow and should've been dealt faster, but the story at heart is moving, and the leads give it what they can. It's a shame the action doesn't hold up all the time.

One of those movies I just couldn't finish. I'm just not a fan of James Franco; he seems too arrogant and self-obsessed.

Fails in a lot of areas, but still a good watch.

A whole lot of nothing going on....tries to hard to be too many things and fails big time.

EPIC!! GREAT characters & story
I love the characters, emotion, sets, story. It's a beautiful, heart-wrenching Love story, with enough blood, fighting, & guts to help keep the blood-thirsty interested long enough to learn about the finesse & GREATness of real Love.

Just a rip-off of Romeo and Juliet.

Not so bad, this version of Trsitan & Isolde. And James Franco shows some pretty good acting!!

Completely over-sexualized and clunky for no reason, Tristan & Isolde is medieval trash. This is one of the worst films I've ever seen.

Much better than anticipated. Critics are paid to be critical...they're outnumbered by nearly 40% by the audience.

melodrama digno. Direção artística lindo e cativante história de amantes malfadada .Um estilo visual forte e um traço violento

This garbage is about as predictable, cliched, and unfocused as a movie can possibly get. Tristan & Isolde in a nutshell is porn in the medieval times... yeah.

What could have been a great love story was watered down by bland acting and thoughtless dialogue.
