Product Description

Quest for Camelot (WBFE) (DVD)

Amazon.ca

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

A good movie about tenacity against adversity... music reflects the theme and some songs stick with you... "I Stand Alone" is one of them but there are others that my kids still sing lines from (and they are now all in their 20s).

I grew up with the movie, but our old DVD was lost long ago. I ordered this when I saw the great price. This movie is so nostalgic for me, but I know I would love it if I watched it for the first time now.

The case is a little flimsy, as it's of the recyclable sort, but it serves its purpose well enough.

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.

Quest for Camelot is the story of a rather archetypical "spirited young lady", Kayley, who embarks on a quest to save King Arthur's Camelot when the King's fabled sword, Excalibur, is stolen by the evil knight, Sir Ruber, who also murdered Kayley's father. Along the way, she enlists the reluctant help of a blind hermit and once-aspiring knight named Garrett, along with the movie's comedy relief, a dragon whose two heads rather deprecatingly describe themselves as "the reason why cousins shouldn't marry."
The one thing that compels me to give this movie a 3-star rating is its glaring awkward moments. Some scenes were handled very roughly, rather than with the gentleness that they should have been given. A few of these moments are not only awkward, but also make the movie somewhat unsuitable for the younger kids. Kayley stepping into a dragon's egg comes to mind, and some of the rather off-beat humor coming from the general direction of Cornwall, Devon, and the villan, Ruber, qualifies as well.
Though Quest for Camelot has quite a few awkward moments, there are instances where the movie shines. The scene where Kayley finds that her father is dead was handled masterfully, with the disembodied song of her older self coming in at just the right moment and with just the right tone. Another masterpiece is the Lady Juliana's (Kayley's mother's) song, as superimposed over Kayley's flight from Ruben's mechanical henchmen. That is what really makes this movie wonderful: the songs. "Here in the Night" makes your heart swell as you listen to its climax, and Juliana's song, as performed by Celine Dion, fits seamlessly into the movie without making a ripple.

This movie has action, adventure, a bit of romance, and lots of humor! The story is about a young girl named Kayley, who's father had been killed protecting King Author from the evil villian named Sir Ruber. The magical sword, Excalibur, had been stolen by a Griffen but is lost because of a silver-winged hawk called Ayden. Kayley goes off into the Forbidden Forest to search for it and she meets Garret who used to be a stable boy but went away to live as a hermit because his eyes were blinded in an horrible accident. He lives alone with Ayden who guides him along the way. As they go off in search for Excalibur,they meet a two-headed dragon(s) who hates 'each other'. Together, they search for the magical sword.
Any fantasy-lover would love this movie. The voice of Garret is Cary Elwes and Kayley's voice is Jessalyn Gilsig. Sir Ruber's voice is Gary Oldman. This story is great for watching together with your family! This is my favorite Disney animation movie.

I was shocked,surprised and flabbergasted by the negative reviews I would see on the web, I thought that this film a very,VERY good Arthurian movie along with Walt Disney's classic "The Sword in The Stone;" the MGM live-action classic "Knights of the Round Table" with Robert Taylor & Ava Gardner; the musical "Camelot" starring Richard Harris & Vanessa Redgrave.

This film has everything: a very good story, excellent music, and that's one thing I love in a movie is a very good soundtrack; and an excellent voice casting too. I love Kayley, and her desire to carry on the tradition of her father in the excellent song On My Father's Wings was a great scene in the film. I also love song "The Prayer" too. The song became popular among artists like the Celtic Woman - I don't understand why a popular song would come from a film that people thought it's awful.
