Good entertainment; decent telling of the "Camelot" tale

"This is not a bad telling of the classic "Camelot" tale. The main problem with this film in my view is that in this version Guenevere is immediately smitten with Lancelot, so there is no subtlety at all as regards the betrayal of King Arthur by his favorite knight and by his bride. King Arthur himself in this film is shown as almost impossibly naive not to see what is coming.
There are other redeeming features of this film. The camaraderie of the Knights of the Round Table is charming, and the fight scenes (especially the initial joust) are fun to watch. Despite the above criticisms, this film moves along briskly and holds the viewer's interest. I don't buy the ending (no spoilers here) but the viewer may judge for him or her self.
My DVD is not a particularly good copy. The sound is somewhat uneven, and the transfer of the video is not as good as I had hoped."

"Good film, although the quality of the film is a little grainy in addition to colors at times being faded, however, the story is a good one, in addition to the acting being very good."
