Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Star Knight", made in the mid 80's in Spain as "El Caballero del Dragón", is predictable, pretentious, and ponderous, while simultaneously being ridiculous and silly. Starring Harvey Keitel and Klaus Kinski among a cast of thousands of other people you've never heard of, the film is about a man in a space suit who comes to earth in a giant UFO and falls in love with a medieval princess, creating an awkward love triangle. This, of course, sets up the film to have the humans of old think the UFO is a dragon, and through much telepathic conversation (and contrived exposition) leads to what may be the most ridiculous duel in screen history. The special effects are laughable (I especially like the "glowing head" effect), although the costumes are interesting.

The film has many lessons to teach: don't swim toward a giant whirlpool in a lake, for instance; stuff you would have never known on your own. The dialogue is terrible and very stilted ("Don't you know there's a dragon around here that devours goats, women, and children?") and the direction is unskilled. The emphasis afforded non-pertinent things is very distracting: why does the movie open with Matilda the flying goat (really)? Why the prolonged hysterical overreaction to a black cat? I know they were alleged to bring bad luck, but this cat gets a reception that is truly over the top.

The film is terribly unfocused, and the pace is plodding. The director decides the film should be a light comedy for brief scenes on several occasions, squandering whatever suspense it was able to muster. The most outlandish comedic gems are courtesy of The Green Knight, a.k.a. the worst knight ever in history: he is gross buffoonery personified.

I figured for 6 dollars what could it hurt; I've wasted more money on worse things and since I am in Iraq with little to do with the little time I have to myself I figured what could it hurt. Well, not only was it a waste of 6 dollars it was a waste of the hour I spent watching part of it... yes, I could not watch it all. Way to boring and way to... "odd" for me; and I've sat through some pretty boring movies and stayed till the end. Us the 6 dollars and buy a plant; help the ozone.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW...

MST-3000 missed this film.

The basic story line: Klaus Kinski draws a circle in chalk and prays for an angel to visit him and give him the secret of life. A space ship flies over the community. The villagers think it is a dragon and a tax revolt erupts until the dragon is slain. Meanwhile, the dowdy Princess Alba is bored and decides to sneak out of the castle. She does encounter the Green Knight which gives us some comedic moments as does the town crier, but nothing to fall out of your chair over. Once she gets to a lake, the princess decides to doff all her clothes and go skinny dipping by herself. Why? Because if she didn't they would have never put the word "nudity" on the box and we would have never seen the film. The nudity is all underwater and certainly not a reason to get this film. While swimming she is captured by the "dragon" and mute man in a space suit. The princess falls in love and returns during her funeral. Now the question becomes, what to do about the "dragon?"

I don't think there is a scene in the movie which looks like the cover. You won't reveal the surprise ending because chances are you won't make it that far. Move over Italy, Spain is making movies.
