‘Tristan and Isolde’ is great. Sometimes ‘epics’ can get too bogged-down by the sheer breadth of the story and consequently try and cover too much. That isn’t the case here. This is a love story underpinned by political intrigue and personal conflict that has a profound effect on the lives of others. The cinematography is exceptional and beautifully shot in Ireland and the Czech Republic. The set and costumes appear authentic and the acting is first rate.
Beautiful story, but sad.
Camelot without the music! That said, I really enjoyed this movie. Love that epic period in movies. Didn't disappoint.
I enjoyed this movie. Torn between the man she saved and fell in love with and the man she was fought and won for marriage with. Great movie.
This is a excellent movie, passioate,action filled ,blood thirsty and very interesting
Entertaining movie - bit similar to the whole King Arthur love triangle, but an entertaining no brainer to relax with nevertheless
This is a lovely love story and shows what can happen when u dont speak u for yourself
Watched this movie on recommendation to explore the love attachments and how we Westerners are bought up to belive that true love must be full of drama and how we cannot live without another..loved the movie but didn't find it as dramatic as the book "We..Understanding the Psychology of Romantic Love" told the story of Triston and Iseult. I did find it frustrating that they snuck off together when she could have had a perfectly loving relationship with Mark..highly recommend the story but I also love that Era so may not be everyone's cuppa.
Love this sort of stuff....
u sent to me an error disc. i couldnt view it
Disc faulty could not load!
I really enjoyed this movie. Some great actors and a believable love story with some bloody battles thrown in to keep the boys happy.
good looking film, but underplays a fabulous story inoffensive but very ordinary
A well paced retelling of a traditional story.
A fast moving film showing the brutality of the dark ages. Love does not conquer all and the clans continue their brutal persuits.
Who doesn't love a love story? Who knew the Irish nearly conquered Brition? Best performance from a king!
Fantastic movie, I loved it. Had a great story line. A few blood thirsty bits in it which is to be expected considering the period it is set in.
If you like movies such as Gladiator, Troy and Braveheart then this is a must see. It's packed with romance, action and a great story line.
Great movie... could easily watch it again!
I was unable to advise at the time as my computer was in meltdown, that Tristan
Good battes for the boys and a love story for the girls.
killer movie which will please all crowds.
ok movie would'nt watch it again
nice movie... balled my eyes out @ the end
nice movie, good romance movie for everyone to see even ...
Note:- girls make sure u have a few tissues ready :O)
Formulaic, nothing original here. Romeo & Juliet meets Kingdom of Heaven. This movie was doomed from the start !
good period movie. gr8t acting, loverly scenery. worth a look.
I found this a bit of slog. Lots of colour and a lot of effort, it seems, to get the period right but it's no Braveheart. It just didn't involve me. Try it you like this medieval time period and have a bit of patience.
Nothing like a good battle mixed in with a love story. Not as good as some of this Directors other work but definatley worth watching.
I really enjoyed watching this movie. Nothing beats a medieval romance on a "Sunday" afternoon. Worth watching.
Lacks star power & little chemistry between the two leads, but good battle sequences!
visuallystunning,quite enjoyable & touching love story
Excalibur and King Arthur's tale meets Romeo and Juliet. Excellent mix of romance and action - something in there to keep the guys and girls happy! Great cast, acting and cinematography.
Great story and fantastic acting. Pleasantly surprised
Surprisingly good costume drama that looks good and is not simply an opportunity to stage big battle scenes. The performances are restrained and all the better for it. Though the soundtrack was very good, I would have loved to have heard the strains of Wagner's opera of the same name. It may have lifted this film to even greater heights.
Great love story - would have been better with a happy ending though!
I don't usually go for this type of movie but I found it quite entertaining and very interesting historically..
Beautiful cinematography. Probably more a chic flick however my husband and son both watched from beginning to end, a bit of action, gore, in a tale of love.
This is a great love story and excellent movie LOVED IT!!!
Fairly good movie with plenty of action and some nice scenery.
Gorgeous movie, but James Franco should stick to action movies, didn't really have the depth required for this one.
Good acting by all cast! Worth watching once!
Loved it! Very romantic tale and well acted...My favourite actor in it is Rufus Sewell.
This movie is only saved by by the beautiful scenery of Ireland, and possibly a nice change to all those bloodthirsty movies out there. Tries to be the next "Romeo and Juliet" but fails.
WOW! Great movie, definetly worth a look. Good scripts, great actors and an interesting story line
i've expected more from this film. J. Franko "in love" face expression was really annoying. this movie didnt offer anything new
great movie, action, romance and heroism all in one.
good scenery too.
James Franco's perpetual hang-dog expression and misty eyes dominate this movie. Not enough action for this type of flick.
They aimed for an epic film and that's what they delivered. A true medieval tragedy. The script, casting and acting are all spot on.
Had no real expectations and was pleasantly surprised - very enjoyable
It was ok.wasnt exactly what i had hoped for but it was well worth watching it.
If you like romance.. yes
well worth looking at this great movie.
Good period movie, with drama, action and romance.
Not bad a true love triangle a bit gory so has something for both sexes.
Beutifully shot and passionately told.
Historically enlightening re: the Irish attacks on the Cornish tribes. The love birds gorgeous, and shows this antecedent of the themes of torn between two lovers - Arthur & Guinevere etc Hubby wants me to knit the tunics they wore!
Good movie, costumes and period well done, script a little "done to death", as in Lancelot. Sad endings always hard to take.
I loved this , beautifully filmed and evocative of time and place. The two lead actors are a delight to watch and the doomed love story is sure to bring a tear to the eye. Probably will appeal to a predominantly female audience but my husband was still watching at the final credits. The extras include the theme song and worth a listen.
Pretty good, showing how it was back then!!
Beautiful story, scenery & acting
This movie showed up the extremes of lighting technique used in film making but it was really all too dark.
Like most historicals (true or fantastical) there is usually an element of predictability. However, I've fallen in love with this film. James Franco and Sophia Myles are great and the crew did a fantastic job on what is considered a small budget for this type of film.
Very moving love story well acted and staged with plenty of good fighting action
Very well put together. It had me involved from the word go. Very touching towards the end also.
The legend is loosely interpreted,as it is not a medieval political struggle,but a love story,with no "correctness".Otherwise it is a very good enjoyable epic,with love woven into it. Well played and directed, and the scenery/props are marvelous.(wish they meke a movie abt. King Arthur with the same set up) Must see if you want an excitingly nostalgic evening.
Romantic, atmospheric, great costumes & settings. Casting of characters was spot on, particularly Tristan, torn between love for Isolde & loyalty to his King.
Excellent movie. Didn't know the main actors but excellent movie. dont miss it
Everyone know the tale of King Arthur but this is truly a better take on the tale. It is based loosely on an old legend which existing long before the tales of King Arthur sprung up. The actors all play their roles convincingly and if you are not very familar with James Franco, then do yourself a favour and see this movie. The visual aspect of the scenery is filmed very convincingly and adds to the magic of this story.
A real tear jerker!!!
Romeo & Juliette eat your heart out!!!
Tedieous and unbelievable. Scenery was nice though but the action was gory.
really good love story.Two girls cried during the movie.
It may help to watch this movie in complete quiet, with no distractions to fully comprehend the story line and just who's who.
Very much like Romeo and Juliet in as far as the love story with no future, held back by the feuding families or clans/countries in this particular case.
Enjoyable but nothing remarkable.
Good Film, but very predictable. No surprises so you have to be in the mood and then you can enjoy it. Acting and production was excellent.
Was a little disappointed with the story line and think more emphasis should be placed on true events in history. This did actually happen around the era of King Arthur, so there some realism in the movie. The real end of Tristam is a more emotional then depicted here. Would have been a quite a tear jerker.
This film is a travesty of the medieval romantic tale. There are numerous problems with it - mostly with script and direction. If you love the story, don't bother with this movie.
Beautiful story and good history lesson all in one - what more could one want?!
Pretty good - Romantic drama is not my thing but this is well acted, pretty well written and visually interesting
