Slightly edgy medieval tale with rock music.

It's as if Helgeland didn't have enough confidence in his own material's basic appeal that he resorted to desperate pandering.

Endless jousting tournaments transpire with lots of balsa wood jousting poles splintering across the screen. It's a classic example of a "'what-on-earth-were-they-thinking" movie...

Unmotivated storyline, bad love interest situation, dull leading man, quick plot with no set-up. Lazy movie.

For all its mainstream exertions, A Knight's Tale is actually something of an experimental melding of old and new.

A Knight's Tale looks and sounds pretty darned good in Blu-ray.

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.

A breezy, lightweight romp perfect for a summer afternoon.

It's all done with a light-hearted touch and a wicked sense of humor.

Historical accuracy is cashed in for a classic rock soundtrack and a forest of shattered lances, but the trade-off is worthwhile.

Minor grievances aside, this warped medieval yarn glides by on a funny, friendly, goofy sort of goodness.

Knight's Tale does suffer from a predictable, follow-the-dots plot, but it's so well executed anyone willing to have a good time will readily buy in.

Ledger carries A Knight's Tale as far as it can go, which is an accomplishment.

Gadzooks! Methinks I witnessed the World Series of Jousting in A Knight's Tale and actually enjoyed every minute of it.

Overloaded with plot where it doesn't need any ... Its latter acts detract from a movie that could have stood up for itself with its funny irreverance.

a rousing Cinderella story that cannily combines boisterous comedy, blood-pumping combat scenes and a generous portion of class-crossing romance.

Corazón de Caballero no aspira al Oscar; se trata de una realización netamente con la marca de Hollywwod. Pero sin duda es un buen producto.
| Original Score: 8/10

The kind of silly feel-good popcorn movie that film critics generally enjoy ripping apart, and mainstream audiences generally just enjoy.
