What is?

Ruber memes aside, the story and characters are enjoyable enough, but it's held down by distractingly poor animation - especially the shitty 3D. The younger you watch it, the better it probably is.

It's still a shame WB failed to compete with Disney in the animated movie department.

    I think it's a very confused movie. It has really weird morals like it's okay to settle for a shitty life instead of being what you dreamed to be. Like Devon and Cornwall choosing to remain conjoined when the stone grants them separate bodies.

      This. It has good bits in it, but little coherent plot/characterisation.
      Devon/Cornwall - Great banter and back and forth but why ever the frick settle for being two people in control of one body instead of being two regular guys who can still hang out if they wish?
      Kayley - Cute girl MC who isn't hypercompetant at everything - unlike Female Protagonists in Current Year. However, most of her wins come from other people doing the lifting or basically getting lucky. She wants to be a knight but doesn't do much training or trying to be one.
      Garrett - a Blind guy who has already overcome his blindness in his backstory. His character arc is to learn to trust people and work with them, I guess?
      In short, Quest for Camelot had good potential and didn't do much with it.
      Only Ruber was truly memorable.

        I'm pretty sure she doesn't actually win a fight at any point. Add that to never wearing any armor or being particuarly good at endurance, she's not really that serious about the whole knight thing.
        >In short, Quest for Camelot had good potential and didn't do much with it.
        That's the real tragedy of it, there's a decent movie in there somewhere but the writers failed utterly to deliver.

      The dragons are pretty simple they just shortened the metaphor. Whole movie has them bickering and talking about hating each other, then in the end they choose to actually not go their separate ways, and the most succinct way of showing it was having them literally embrace each other again in conjoinment

    5/10 movie. Not offensive, just weird.

    I think the only parts I actively dislike are the dragon/s and how Kayley and Garret's singing voices sound nothing like their speaking voices.

    Why THIS of all movies was the one WB chose to promote endlessly is beyond me. They should've focused more on developing their own brand instead of chasing trends, their speciality could've been offbeat "alt" animation like cats Don't Dance, Iron Giant, and Mask of the Phantasm, not Disney knock-offs.

      It'd say it's 'good'. I feel absolutely no need to watch it again, and it definitely suffers from being a kids movie when the plot really wants to be at least in the 13-18 demographic; but there are actually bad films out there from this era and this is not one of them.

      They wanted that Disney Renaissance money. It's the same reason why they rushed their DCCU. "Me want Disney money, and me wants it now!"

        That was the original plan for the film before the original director/s (the Kroger’s, who also did Ferngully) got fired and replaced by Frederik Du Chau who turned it into a Disney-style musical.

        Ironically enough, Miramax was trying to chase trends by editing this to hell and back.

    I appreciate that they consulted with actual blindness professionals for Garret's navigation and movement, but the movie was otherwise underwhelming.

    I remember Lauren Faust worked on this movie and hated it, but I can't remember why, some feminism beef over the female lead.

      It is a super dumb "I want to be a strong female character and be a knight just like my dad!" only to end up constantly requiring saving and guidance from men plot. I think it's a miscasting and bad writing problem, though.

        Yes, but Last Unicorn was the company's death throes.

    Finally caught it on YT a few months back. One of the most enjoyable movies I've seen in a while. Forget the other elements, it was pure eye candy and it didn't bore me like it could have.

      Just look at the ogre scene. His head even clips through his torso.

      Then again, maybe I'm being harsh on it for its time. Beast Wars had come out two years ago.
