The movie is entertaining enough in its own way, and Sean Connery makes a splendid King Arthur, but compared with the earlier films[Rob Roy and Braveheart] this one seems thin and unconvincing.

Bad acting, dumb dialogue, and confusing cinematography abound, creating one of the most shoddy Camelot stories to date.

Whoever thought Richard Gere would make a good Lancelot needs to be found and sterilized.

A stock bodice-ripper - albeit one in which all bodices survive intact.

There's something sick about a Camelot movie in which the point of the great Arthur's death is to bring the lovers together in a guilt-free union.

Goes for a pass as a shallow but occasionally rousing swordfighting flick with a handful of thoughtful scenes...has something those other pictures don't have: Sean Connery as King Arthur.

Bland and over-romanticized treatment of the Arthurian legend. Gere ridiculously miscast as Lancelot. Watch Boorman's EXCALIBUR instead.

I've never seen a film -- whether it was based on a book, a play, or in this case a timeless legend -- treat its source material with such cavalier disregard.

...lots of action and chivalrous pomp, but no magic.
January 1, 2000
Pillaged of such mainstays as Merlin and Morgan le Fay-as well as magic, majesty and depth-'Camelot' has become 'Camelite.'
January 1, 2000
There's swordplay to the hilt, but the story itself never quite gets in Gere.

...has so many wild cliffhanger situations that you may expect the film's action to stop at some point as 'To Be Continued . . . ' pops up on the screen.
