50 tl deneme bonusu veren siteler. Probably the worst film I have seen in years.

I rate it at 2 because of the enormous effort and investment to make such an horrible film.

Fmovies: Noisy, not funny at all and boring. You will not believe me but so much waste of energy and talent of good actors (and the Kaamelott series on TV is often brilliant) is not worth wasting your time and money. It's not a comedy, it's not a tragedy, it's nothing. The screenwriter, the dialogue writer and the director forgot to put themselves in the spectator's shoes. You have been warned. Run away. And in principle do not come back for part two because they took the same and continued.

Kaamelott is a fair movie but you have to know the TV series, to appreciate the tone and inside jokes. The story is a continuation from the ending of the series. The film kind loose it's sharpness in the middle, and get it back at the end. So, there are parts that feels a bit ordinary. Not much action, and not spectacular. It's a low budget comedy. The soundtrack is pretty good. I give it 72%. It's not perfect and not always well rhythm in terms of pace, but I think it was a nice return to the lore and comedy of Kaamelott.

Kaamelott: First Installment fmovies. I didn't think this movie would be this good, but in real life it is too good. So funny, moving, the music grandiose... I had a wonderful time.

I am a Kaamelott fan.

Yet, I'm writing this review right after watching it, because I know that within 24h, memories of it will be gone.

There are several Kaamelotts in Kaamelott : seasons 1 to 4 are shortcom, very dense, and they are responsible for the huge popularity of the show for the french-speaking audience ; seasons 5 and 6 are way more about narration ; the movies, about which we know only one third at the moment.

Not counting spin-offs like comic books.

If, like me, you enjoyed especially the shortcom format, don't expect too much from the movie.

It's always a good thing to see an author extract himself from a format's limitations, and become able to express his view in a wider, more free way. However, it stripped Kaamelott of what made it popular.

This movie has some qualities. For example, the Burgondes are used in a very, very smart way. They are useful to the story, and still keep their comical aspect (like Percival and Karadoc), and even get some nice development.

On the contrary, Lancelot is a complete failure, both writing-wise and acting-wise. He's supposed to be an extremely roughless ruler, but is stepped on in every scene. This character is the biggest failure in the movie, and it's spectacular.

Talking about characters, why create so many new ones, when there's already a plethora of perfectly usable ones ?

Some are really good, well written and performed, such as Leodagan's sister, or the saxon leader (performed by Sting). Most others are completely expandable. Worse, they stand in the way. What is surprising is that their personalities are sometimes a copy-paste of existing characters.

Alexandre Astier is very talented, no question about it. But giving a distinct personality to so many characters turned out to be too ambitious. When a new character speaks, sometimes we don't hear the character, we just hear Astier's writing.

On the other hand, something difficult that was done well is to make this movie a decent stand-alone, while at the same time being the first act of a trilogy.

Costumes will hit you, and give a hard time to your willing suspension of disbelief. These costumes don't belong on a big screen. They belong in a theater festival, in a hot summer evening in Provence.

Let's be nice and call it an artistic choice.

Some shots are visually very well done. Overall, it looks nice. In the desert we're hot, on the sea we shiver. But like basically everything in this movie, quality is uneven.

Same thing for the Fx. With a long format like this, the budget goes up, and you can get a little fancy with special effects. The two characters, Merlin and Elias, who could have taken great advantage of this and shine bright, have not. Maybe in part 2 or 3, but if not that would be such a waste.

Overall, effects are well done, those linked to Excalibur are stunning, coated with the appropriate sound design. But the castle, well, looks like it's from a video game cutscene.

The show has used effects here and there, in a clever way, and there are a bit more than usual, which makes sense. But they didn't go overboard about it, and it's rather a good thing for coherence.

So, as you got it, I was not convinced by the movie. And yet, I wasn't expecting much, I knew it would be closer to the later seasons than to the earlier ones.

It's average, like the 5/10 stars mark, and at least one of

Great movie good Director the end falls a little flat even though we know there are potential sequels. That being said it's not always easy to go from TV capsules to feature this time it can be regarded as successful.
