A great big "meh." So long, I didn't really pay attention much of the last hour.

Slow-paced, but intriguing never-the-less. And the Arthurian overtones are unmistakable.

One of my top 5 favorite movies ever

One of my favourites.

Dull, unoriginal and predictable. Trite plot. Seriously irritating and hammy acting by James Franco (I still haven't figured out why he has an acting career). Even a supporting cast of biggish names - Rufus Sewell, Mark Strong, Henry Cavill - can't save this.

The only positive is Sophia Myles, for many reasons...

this movie was really good

Pleasantly surprised by this sombre and beautifully filmed story. Some nice performances but ultimately it is this legend/story that drives the film and creates the enjoyable experience. Overly romantic and mushy so not one for the guys most likely.

Can't think of a movie I'm less interested in seeing

This film is an "any man or woman" film. Whether you are looking for action or romance, it has something for everyone. While this film has similarities to Romeo and Juliet, it is does a wonderful job of holding it's own. Interesting plot twists prevent this film from being overshadowed by Shakespeare's tale of star-crossed love.

The film was effectively casted with Sophia Miles as Isolde and James Franco as Tristan. Franco's performance as Tristan would have been flawless had he perfected his accent better for this film. I felt there were times when his accent was better than others. Although a secondary character, Rufus Sewell really stood out in this film and performed outstandingly...probably some of his best work.

Definitely recommend this film for date night!

The story is not bad but the script is very cheesy and doesn't fulfill the true romanticism of the original novel, besides such movie requires strong music which this one lacks.

I enjoyed this movie. A real medieval time setting movie that portrays forbidden love.
