Colorful, but ultimately disappointing version of the King Arthur legend. Jettisonned are all but the three main characters (Arthur, Guinevere, and Lancelot), as well as most of the magic of the original story. What remains is a standard action story (whose battle scenes have been outclasses by the recent Braveheart), and a love triangle. The love triangle, the most compelling aspect of the film, is unfortunately abruptly ended by a deus ex machina which wrenches the life out of the legend and this film.
