    "While this is Heath Ledger's gig, Paul Bettany certainly stole the movie's thunder. As a herald, writer Geoffrey Chaucer (Bettany) made it possible for audiences to connect with the film just by the grace of tongue. Overall, the movie is a great watch. "

    "A simple young man of no royal or noble origins try to become a knight using skills, wit, and honor. This is like Jon Snow in the making as he went to serve the night's watch. At the very least it is making me feel like im watching him from a different light."

    "A Knight's Tale might seem like a complete jumbled mess of anachronisms but I think it's a great and creative way of making this movie understandable and relatable to a modern audience. It's definitely not for everyone but that doesn't mean it's not good."
