Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A 1995 film that reinterprets the Arthurian Legend, written by William Nicholson (Wind on Fire) and directed by Jerry Zucker. The music score is by Jerry Goldsmith.King Arthur (Sean Connery) has spent his entire life bringing justice to the land and wants more than anything else to marry Guinevere and enjoy a peaceful retirement. Despite genuinely caring for him, Guinevere (Julia Ormond) feels it to be her duty to marry him, and its clear that she has a problem with letting obligation make her decisions for her, instead of her heart. Lancelot (Richard Gere) is a wandering swordsman, making as few ties as possible because his family and village were destroyed in the wars. When these three collide, will they save Camelot from its latest threat or doom it?

comment
Age Lift: King Arthur is a lot older than Guinevere and Lancelot while they are all usually portrayed as around the same age.

Adapted Out: Usual Arthurian villains Mordred and Morgan le Fay. The villain Prince Malagant is derived from Chrétien de Troyes' Maleagant.

Adaptational Heroism

comment
Adaptational Heroism: Sir Agravaine is a good guy here, the most prominent of the other Round Table knights. Averted with Lancelot, who was the most famous example of chivalry in European literature, but in the film is depicted as a wandering warrior without armor or any majestic purpose in life.

Annoying Arrows: Averted. Malagant's mini-crossbows are quite fatal.

Arrows on Fire
 First Knight / int_5869bd44
comment
Arrows on Fire: King Arthur's troops make use of these. Interestingly, the arrows appeared to use something like magnesium as the flammable agent, which, at least, looked cool. Unlike many examples it's fully justified as part of a trap, having previously baited the enemy into a very dry field of grass. Definitely magnesium as I was an extra in that scene. They were linked with fishing wire which was set off simultaneously. No in universe explanation was given for this.
