November 20, 2001
Runs out of ideas at about the halfway mark.
November 24, 2001
The latest in a string of mediocre-to-bad films that have latched onto Lawrence's name as their sole marketable commodity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 1, 2001
If you've seen the trailer, you've seen the movie. One's a lot longer than the other.

Martin Lawrence [stars] as a theme park worker who falls into a scummy moat and surfaces in the Middle Ages -- perhaps in search of people who would find his humor fresh and original. No such luck.
November 20, 2001
It's sad to see the comedian straining to stay afloat in this moat of unfunniness.
November 21, 2001
It's spectacularly unfunny, badly acted, and filled with so many contrivances and plot holes, you'd think the three screenwriters each wrote their chunk of the movie without looking at what the others had written.

November 16, 2001
The movie is slovenly and careless, and it looks like it was financed with money panhandled on Hollywood Boulevard in a couple of afternoons.

November 29, 2001
Tedious and predictable.
March 4, 2002
...is about as hilarious as skinny-dipping in an alligator-infested moat.

June 2, 2003
Lawrence relies on his usual act as the hip black guy surrounded by square white men.

November 20, 2001
...minimal effort put into this movie's hit-or-miss humor.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 20, 2001
A slogging, painfully uninspired rehash of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

...there's not a lot in it that will offend anyone...unless you count dull, boring, and unoriginal as offensive.

November 20, 2001
Less original than a Renaissance Faire handbook.
November 20, 2001
Black Knight is a movie that knows its audience. Its underlying philosophy might be: why try harder when this is all they expect?

November 21, 2001
Represents yet another blown opportunity to raise Martin Lawrence's game to a higher level.
November 21, 2001
Were it not for Lawrence's presence, you get the feeling the flimsily constructed comedy would simply collapse and blow away.
November 21, 2001
This is paint-by-numbers filmmaking.
