Fresh: ...a handsome, entertaining twist on the King Arthur legend...
- Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Rotten: There's swordplay to the hilt, but the story itself never quite gets in Gere.
- Eve Zibart, Washington Post, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Rotten: Bad acting, dumb dialogue, and confusing cinematography abound, creating one of the most shoddy Camelot stories to date.
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Another terrible rendition of King Arthur. Turning the story into nothing more than a romantic threesome is just pure slander. To change the story to fit a movie is one thing, but this should've just left Arthur's name all together. The acting is terrible, quite possibly Sean Connery's worst performance and the usual Richard Gere treatment.

I saw this one in the theatre and can't quite remember the whole film, but I do remember enjoying it.

It is always fun to watch another version about Camelot. This one suffers the indignity of having Richard Gere looking like he is from the 20th century playing Lancelot. Sean Connery does a tremendous job playing King Arthur. The ending is just too hokey - one minute Aurthur is sentencing Lancelot to death and the next minute bequeathing his kingdom to him.
