Reviewed on 3/6/2008...
The cover is decieving. It looks like an out and out adventure fighting movie. It is a fighting movie, but in a comical way. Eric Roberts is not the main character in this movie. He and Lesley-Anne Downe really have minor parts. The real essence of this movie is with the other characters and their personalities on how they stand up for the King. It is a very light-hearted movie and I think it was worthy of being watched at least once, though not a keeper.

Movie Reviews

For the ten year old Muskeeter.
Tressa L. Breen | Gardner, MA USA | 01/19/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Treachery, villainy, swordplay, noble secret love and a princess in peril: what more could the average ten year old would-be Musketeer ask for?

Set in the days of chivalry at sword point, "The King's Guard" is the tale of the "last stand" of a princess (Ashley Jones) being taken to a marriage that will save her father's throne and the young noble Guard (Trevor St. John) who secretly loves her, against the traitorous ex-Guard (Eric Roberts) who wants her and the greedy Lord (Ron Perlman) who wants her dowry.

This movie has nice costumes and I think that's where most of the money went. Ninety-nine percent of it takes place in one setting. There are no horses although the DVD cover shows a cavalry. The acting runs the spectrum from almost-painful-to-watch (Jones) to oh-good-someone-knows-what-they're-doing (Perlman, Roberts). The swordplay, although decently choreographed, is done too hesitantly by most of the actors to be truly exciting.

People who are into the Renaissance Fair, SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) and LARP (Live Action Role Playing) scenes may be able to glean some inspiration from the costumes and sword play.

Although there is much fighting there is no blood or gore so this would be an excellent family movie for anyone with young children going through a swashbuckling phase.

There are some funny bloopers after the end credits.

Worth a rent for gamers, worth a rent/buy used for youngsters."
It's not Braveheart - But it's a very good little movie

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alright - it's not Braveheart, but the King's Guard is an intriguing story with swordfighting, romance, good guys and bad guys. Kids can watch it and its family fun. Compared to the vast quantities of crud that's out there - you'll want to see this movie!"
Great Family Entertainment

"The King's Guard was a fantastic film with great sword action. Eric Roberts was totally cool as the bad guy. Costumes and weapons were very authentic. The princess was beautiful and the out-takes at the end were hilarious. They should do a sequel or better yet a TV series."
