Critic Reviews for A Knight's Tale
Whipping along at speed, with elaborate camera movements and rousing speeches, this knows how to engage a crowd. It's corny, of course, but a guilty pleasure: romantic, diverting, with mildly amusing modern gags.
Instead of pulling young audiences imaginatively back into the past, A Knight's Tale cheapens the process by demonstrating that there's no essential difference between then and now.
The movie promises to rock you, and much of the time it does.
The result is half Python, half Ivanhoe -- and not as much fun as either.
You might find yourself smiling and laughing all the way through it.
Essentially, it's a screenful of pseudo-medieval popcorn that hits a high enough level of goofy fun to transcend a pretty blatant marketing strategy aimed at the MTV demographic.
Audience Reviews for A Knight's Tale
Even 15 years later you gotta applaud the idea of someone making a knight movie using rock songs, outlandish (female) hairdos and gowns so very naturally and is that was simply how medieval times played out. A brave attempt that worked out. It's a fun joust with great characters, seriously touching moments and plenty of good laughs. Blowing dust off old stereotypes yet lovingly using some of them just makes for a great ride.
Ledger didn't rock me but it's still quite a good, enjoyable movie. Paul Bettany 's role as Chaucer was excellent. Loved the soundtrack and didn't mind the anachronisms.
A Knight's Tale Quotes
|Wat:||I will fong you!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Wat:||I will fong you!|
|Roland:||[Seeing Sir Ecktor dead] He's dead|
|Roland:||[seeing Sir Ecktor dead] He's dead|
|Wat:||What do you mean Dead?|
|Roland:||The spark of his life is smothered in shite....his spirit has gone but his stench remains does that answer your question?|
|William Thatcher:||It is strange to think, I haven't seen you since a month. I have seen the new moon, but not you. I have seen sunsets and sunrises, but nothing of your beautiful face. The pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle. I miss you like the sun misses the flower; like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to. I next compete in the city of Paris, I will find it empty and in the winter if you are not there. Hope guides me, that is what gets me through the day and especially the night. The hope that after you're gone from my sight, it will not be the last time that I look upon you.|
|Roland:||you may feel like a poet, but you sound like an idiot|
