FIRST KNIGHT (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

 First Knight—good story throughout—engages Richard Gere and Sean Connery in a British action drama. Even though Gere’s British accent could use improvement, the action and drama drown that small failure out. The script requires more emotion from Sean Connery than he normally allows, but he pulls a suitable interpretation of his character. Julia Ormond is a good addition to the movie. The rest of the casting, scenery, and details are good throughout the film.  This performs as a King Arthur story from a different perspective.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a very well put together movie built for a night out. Not outstanding, but a good watch.
