This movie was a blockbuster in 2001, and rightly so. Director/writer Brian Hegleland treated us to a tale of jousting tournaments set in mostly France and partly in England in the 14th century, but with a soundtrack featuring upbeat classic rock with artists like Queen, Bachmann Turner Overdrive, and David Bowie. Even though the lead actor was Heath Ledger, whom stole the show in The Dark Knight years later as The Joker, it is the supporting cast that keeps this movie flowing so well. It is pure entertainment that will keep anyone riveted for the duration of the movie. There is no slowing down at all.
