Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Following their animated/live action hit Space Jam, Warner Bros. jumped into the fully animated feature competition by playing it safe, giving the Arthurian legend a conspicuously Disneyesque facelift. Ingredients from Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Pocahontas are evident in the tale of a girl named Kayley (Jessalyn Gilsig) whose father, a Knight of the Round Table, is killed by Sir Ruber (Gary Oldman), a maniacal brute who steals Excalibur and threatens to seize King Arthur's Camelot. Kayley enlists the blind, reclusive knight-aspirant Garrett (Cary Elwes) to brave the Enchanted Forest and retrieve the magic sword, and their adventure is (of course) fraught with danger. Adding extra punch to the movie's commercial appeal, the soundtrack songs are performed by big names like LeeAnn Rimes and Celine Dion. And if that's not enough to hold a kid's attention, there's a two-headed dragon ("we're the reason cousins shouldn't marry") voiced by Eric Idle and Don Rickles. With so much talent involved, it's entertaining but uninspired, although cleverly harmless riffs from Dirty Harry, Taxi Driver, and other movies spice up the adventure with enjoyable pop-culture references. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

A magical feature-length animated adventure brimming with laughter and song! A heroic young girl, a handsome blind hermit and a comical two-headed dragon join forces to recover King Arthur's magical sword Excalibur after it is stolen by an evil enemy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Childrens Entertainment.. February 22, 2006
By K. Bell
Format:DVD
I ordered the Quest for Camelot dvd for the wonderful Steve Perry video that was included on the disc. Having never watched the movie before I was pleasantly surprised. My 10 year old loves the movie and she loves the games that are included on the disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars TALE OF A KNIGHTESS November 28, 2004
Format:DVD
QUEST FOR CAMELOT is a charming, if somewhat derivative, animated film the whole family should enjoy. Loosely based on the King Arthur and Excalibur legend, the story follows a young girl whose knight father was murdered by the evil knight Ruber. She enlists the aid of a blind young man and his magic bird, and also a two headed dragon, added for humor and ultimately to help save the day.

With animation reminiscent of early Disney and one CGI segment involving a sleeping ogre, CAMELOT has all the ingredients for a musical toon. The songs written by Carole Bayer Sager and David Foster are more pop oriented but performed well by Bryan White, The Coors, Celine Dion and some of the cast members.

The characters are voiced nicely by Jessica Gelwig (Kayley), Cary Elwes (Garrett), Gary Oldman (Ruber), Jane Seymour (Julianna); Pierce Brosnan (Arthur), and of course Don Rickles/Eric Idle as the dragon.

It's probably not destined to be a classic, but it's fine entertainment for the whole clan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family Fun and More! June 10, 2002
Format:DVD
Stretching the truth of the Knights Of The Round table, just a little, this is a great story for kids. Teaching them courage and trust and friendship.
The voices are great, Cary Elwis, Pierce Brosnen, Jane Seymore, John Cleese, Don Rickles and the singing talents of the Corrs, Celene Dion and Steve Perry. This has a wonderful score and the soundtrack is just as good. Great lyrics and music.
The DVD has three fun features that make it just as interesting for the adults and the kids, but I am sure the kids will have far more fun. Technically it is a well put together film and the music and sound effects are brilliant.
The story is sweet and touching and the comedy sprinkled throughout. A must for every family or animated feature fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining...yet...Bizarre October 12, 2005
Format:DVD
I give this movie four out of five stars because it was memorable and fun, but it wasn't fantastic. It was comical and light, so it was good to watch while I was pretty much brain dead. Light entertainment. So here's what I thought.

First of all, the songs were sub-par. I really liked the song "Looking Through Your Eyes". I think that song should be among the famous love duets. My favorite song however was "Prayer", sung by Lady Juliana, Kayley's mother, as Kayley runs from those wacko tool shed villains. It was very pretty and had a nice effect. Plus it also gave Lady Juliana depth. "If I Didn't Have You" was comical and fun. However, The songs, "On My Father's Wings" and the opening song weren't really memorable for me and the opening song lacked the power and umph that I generally like in animated movies. Ruber's, the bad guy, song was weird and I didn't realize he was even singing until about halfway through the song. I thought that he was just chanting along to that weird music.

Okay, the characters. Kayley was nicely done and she was a good, interesting heroine. I give her a thumbs up. One comment on her though-would they really allow girls to wear that sort of outfit in the middle ages? It seemed kind of boyish and out of place, even though it was cool. I thought Lady Juliana was a really good minor character because she had so much faith in her daughter and never gave up. She is also very strong and isn't afraid of anyone. I loved her. I thought that the female characters in this movie were drawn stronger than the males. The guys all looked awkward. Anyway, moving on. Garet was a good character and I liked him, although his song (which I forgot to mention above) was merely okay. He was strong and could fight very well for a blind guy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as the critics think February 9, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I am in the favor of this movie, probably because I'm a sucker for animated movies. But the blatant point besides being an "animated movie lover," I try NOT to be biased. True, the Warner Bros. children fantasy epic does has some ... of "Beauty and the Beast" and other good movies.
As the movie suggests, this is about a tomboyish beauty who ignores her widowed mother's wishes to become a proper lady and sets off to be a knight and "rescue damsels in distress." But she is sidetracked by a would-be-usurper who wants to take King Arthur's Excalibur and rule Camelot, who kidnaps her mother (because the girl's father was killed when protecting Arthur's life) as revenge.
The girl meets a two-headed dragon and a blind, hunkish hermit she enlists in thwarting the apparent villain from his devious task.
The animation is so-so but is occasionally colorful and dazzling. The vocals are finely done (superb "acting" by Jessalyn Gilsig, Cary Elwes, Gary Oldman, and Pierce Brosnan as King Arthur) and the songs and plot are slight. Despite what the critics have talked about it, it's a well-made animated movie with a few minor flaws. Give this a look.

2.0 out of 5 stars So many big names, so much disappointment May 9, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe how many big name actors signed on to do voices for this fairly lame story. First of all, although it's not Disney, it follows the Disney formula of the time having a "girl power" message and featuring lots of sappy songs (none of which were sung by the actors who did the speaking voices). Second of all it was generally very formulaic: heroic girl meets heroic but unappreciated guy, they fall in love and save the day and everyone starts to appreciate the guy. There is the obligatory sidekick (two in this case, the two-headed dragon Devon/Cornwall). Ruber's a typical 'evil looking' bad guy. His minions are straight out of Disney, too. The dialogue was unexceptional; the songs were sappy and we couldn't figure out the words. I am glad this was on Amazon's bargain rack because if I'd paid more than the $7.49 I'd be really, REALLY disappointed.

My 8-year-old son liked Devon & Cornwall but otherwise was rather bored with the whole thing.
