Not Bad, but Not Good Either...

FIRST KNIGHT isn't a bad movie, it's just disappointing. It puts out a decent effort, but it misses the mark. The love triangle of Arthur-Guinevere-Lancelot is one of the most engrossing plots of literature, and this movie manages to pump most of the depth out of it in favor of some over-the-top battles. These battles are violent, but, outside of the occasional gore on the sword, aren't particularly graphic. There are some light sexual innuendos, but no actual sexual content. The film revolves around an adulterous admiration (I won't say affair, because they only kiss once), but all characters are brave and forgiving.
