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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Plot in a nutshell - Baron Ruber (voice of Gary Oldman) wants all the power & wealth in the land, is thus expelled from the Round Table for it, and vows revenge on King Arthur (voice of Bond star Pierce Brosnan) and all who inhabit his realm. Years later, Ruber steals the sword Excalibur and plunges Camelot into chaos. The only hope is Kayley (voice of Jessalyn Gilsig), the plucky, super cute farm girl tomboy teen-aged daughter of a Round Table knight Ruber killed years ago, who manages to rope a blind forester/former stable boy named Garrett (voice of Cary Elwes) and a two-headed dinosaur/dragon mutant (voiced by Don Rickles and Eric Idle) into helping her retrieve Excalibur. Comedy, chaos and mayhem ensues.

Maybe not the best animated feature ever made, but still enjoyable in its old fashioned Disney kind of way. Combination of traditional hand-drawn animation set against CGI backgrounds makes for a beautifully uneven visual feast. Characters are fairly likable and good-natured enough not to annoy anyone.

Based on the book "The King's Dam0sel" by the late Vera Chapman.
