From Back Cover:
"GREAT ACTION, TERRIFIC PERFORMANCES!"
From executive producer Ridley Scott (Gladiator) comes a sweeping, action-packed saga of epic battles, political intrigue and forbidden passion, set in a time when the lines between heroism and savagery were etched in fire and carved out with broadswords. After the fall of Rome, visionary warlord Marke (Rufus Sewell) seeks to unite the squabbling English tribes to form one strong nation and defeat the brutal Irish king Donnchadh. But when Lord Marke's greatest and most loyal knight, Tristan (James Franco), falls in love with Isolde (Sophia Myles), a beautiful Irish woman, it threatens to destroy the fragile truce and ignite a war. In the spirit of Braveheart and A Knight's Tale, TRISTAN + ISOLDE is a rousing tale of trust and treachery that will leave you breathless.
A nice movie, but not great and not especially memorable. Probably more like 2.5 stars than 3.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
