ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review It is possible, I suppose, to object when the audience at a 15th century jousting match begins to sing Queen's "We Will Rock You" and follows it with the wave. I laughed. I smiled, in fact, all through Brian Helgeland's "A Knight's Tale," which tells the story of a low-born serf who impersonates a knight, becomes a jousting champion and dares to court the daughter of a nobleman...Some will say the movie breaks tradition by telling a medieval story with a soundtrack of classic rock. They might as well argue it breaks the rules by setting a 1970s rock opera in the Middle Ages. To them I advise: Who cares? A few days after seeing this movie, I saw Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge," which was selected to open the Cannes Film Festival despite being set in 1900 and beginning with the hero singing "The Sound of Music." In the case of "A Knight's Tale," Helgeland has pointed out that an orchestral score would be equally anachronistic, since orchestras hadn't been invented in the 1400s. For that matter, neither had movies.

Review You'll experience three distinct emotions while watching A Knight's Tale: disbelief, delight, and disappointment. The first sensation arrives early, as we see a huge crowd of authentic-looking 14th-century jousting spectators carry on like Oakland Raiders fans, doing the wave and stomping their feet in unison to the booming chords of Queen's "We Will Rock You." The camera even zooms in on a group of tunic-clad trumpeters, as though Freddie Mercury's voice was bellowing out of their horns. It's a moment of stupefying absurdity, one of the most bizarre juxtapositions of medieval and modern culture since Ed Harris led a band of armor-clad biker punks in Knightriders...Add the predicable, overlong showdown at the "European Knights' World Jousting Championships" -- not to be confused with the Crusaders' Saracen-Slaughtering Playoffs or the Vikings' All-Scandinavia Looting and Pillaging Cup -- and what was originally a laughable fiasco, then a rousing adventure, becomes just another muddled disappointment.

Desson Thomson, The Washington Post Savvy without being smug...and funny without slipping into over-the-top goofiness, this is a 14th-century good time.
Gemma Files, ...witty, fresh and fun.
Gregory Weinkauf, New Times Smart, wry and awesome, all at once.
Kim Morgan, Portland Oregonian ...maintains a joie de vivre that's surprisingly refreshing.
The Wall Street Journal Spectacular!
