1.0 out of 5 stars Star Knight - Star Bright... Not!!! December 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars El caballero del dragón June 27, 2013
Format:DVD-R
Probably one of the funnest films I have ever seen. I'm not sure what the other reviewers were expecting. If you like offbeat, odd little films, check it out. Don't take it too seriously.

2.0 out of 5 stars I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW... January 10, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Star Knight Not So Bright February 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD after thinking about it for a few weeks and was not expecting much,.. and basically that is what I got out of it. This movie must have been filmed in Spain a number of years ago. It was funny like a Monty Python type of movie. Harvey Kitel must be willing to appear in almost any type of film. The quality was really poor, the Alien and his Dragon spaceship I suppose were different from recent Alien movies I watch, he was a spaceman who resembled David Bowie. It was really a dumb movie. If you are not expecting a blockbuster movie and really like spanish directors, actors, producers and scenery, and please do not compare with any King Authur Knight movies,... check it out, like I say it is like a Monty Python movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Comedy That Becomes A Staid Romance October 19, 2013
By Clayton
Format:DVD-R
There are sections at the beginning of this film that are hilarious. These include a goat jumping from a cliff in order to escape a farmer suffering from Zoophilia and a peasant woman seducing a man with mental retardation. Where it gets boring is the introduction of romance between a princess and an alien. The film at this point just begins to take itself too seriously; if it had remained a farce how much more enjoyable the film might have been.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weird. Just plain weird. August 25, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Most people with anything to compare Star Knight to would probably give it the lowest rating possible, not only for its B-quality, but also for being so undecided in what it's trying to be. The film is medieval fantasy juxtaposed with science fiction. That's fine. But stuffed into the script are elements of a special-FX flick, a slapstick comedy, a martial arts movie, a fairy tale, and a sci-fi drama, but none of the above being particularly good. This mish-mash is primo material for Mystery Science 3000.
Thinking that Star Knight is just odd enough to have a cult following, I checked online for evidence and found only a few mentions, including two rather glowing reviews. One even praised the special effects, done in 1992, though they looked to me to be the same vintage as Zardoz (1974). But while Star Knight is a totally negligible film on its own terms, it does have some potentially interesting aspects for strange-film buffs.
The story opens on medieval times: peasants in idyllic surroundings pay taxes to the king's taxman, played by Harvey Keitel, if you can believe that. In the king's basement dwells the alchemist, Bothus, played by Klaus Kinski, still more unbelievably. Then there's the king's daughter Alba, played by some actress. She is old enough to desire romance. Then there's the priest, who has a deep distrust for science.
The order of things is quickly thrown into chaos by the appearance of a spaceship. The peasants believe it to be a dragon and demand that the king and Keitel defend them from it before they pay any more taxes. Meanwhile, Alba goes riding in the forest with her governess. In spite of the latter's nagging, she goes skinny dipping in the river, swimming toward mysterious bubbles coming from below.
