Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMbD - barnesandnoble.com - notrecinema.com - entertainment.msn.com - allmovie.com - michaeldvd.com.au: «Sword of Lancelot was originally released in the UK as Lancelot and Guinevere. The film was directed by its star, Cornel Wilde. While this is by no means the best version of the Camelot story, it is not bad. The story should be familiar to everyone. This particular version covers much the same ground as First Knight, covering the events from when Lancelot is sent as King Arthur's champion to bring Guinevere to Camelot to marry the king, to the defeat of Mordred. Cornel Wilde not only directs, he plays Lancelot and plays him as a Frenchman... Like most of Cornel Wilde's efforts as director, there is a lot of action. While the battle and fight sequences are not brilliantly staged, they are reasonably convincing, and quite violent by the standards of the time. The performances are variable, and the direction is competent without being especially innovative. Nevertheless, the film is reasonably enjoyable».
