Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur's reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.

Tried to stay awake throughout the film. People were leaving the movie & checking thei time on their phones to see if it was almost over. The story was pointless. 92% of the movie was the main actor doing nothing & the other 8% you'll be like WTF did I just watch?

This movie was amazing! It's as A24 as A24 gets, and I love it for that! Anyone who calls it boring is a boring person to me. This movie gives you so much to chew on and digest. It treats it's audience like they're smart instead of explaining everything, or showing explosions, and telling jokes to keep their attention every 20 seconds. There is some humor and some exciting moments, but what really makes this movie special is it's story and all the different messages of chivalry and honor throughout. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a very unconventional movie that they'll be thinking about for weeks or months after watching.

It embraces the strange remoteness of myth and Middle Ages lore on its own terms and creates something quietly dazzling and new.

The exceptional level of craftsmanship — which includes some seamless, low-key special effects — wouldn’t be nearly as affecting without the comparable care Lowery brings to this story.

While there’s a lot of commendable chutzpah and curious longing baked into The Green Knight, the movie’s never as compelling as it is unusual.
