Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

A Knight’s Tale (2001)

Directed by Brian Helgeland

Starring Heath Ledger, Rufus Sewell, Shannyn Sossamon, Paul Bettany


Ledger is kinda dorky. He tries real hard to be the man but I’m just not sure that he can do it. I’m a bit disappointed with this choice at this point in his career.

Stock story, the accents are inconsistent. A Nike Swoosh? An electric guitar in the score? A Mexican dude in he crowd? Chaucer is the only interesting and entertaining character (funny how Bettany always plays geniuses). Adhemar is a cookie-cutter bad guy, then you have your typical fat guy and brute characters. Joselyn is unappealing. The chick looks like Madeleine Stowe.
