The Green Knight (2021) : Movie Review – An medieval Epic told with fancy visuals and intriguing storytelling but is too slow to hold your interest.

 

The Green Knight is an medieval Epic told with fancy visuals and intriguing storytelling but is too slow to hold your interest.

 

 

The Green Knight is based on the 14th century peem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and someone who is interested in medieval tales can surely find it interesting. But let me warn you that this 130 minutes film does not offer any pacy flow and that definition defiles most of your interest. The film tells Gawain’s story with high intensity and that gives it something to be praised by critics, however, a major chunk of family audience can just finish their one or two naps during the watch.

 

 

When it comes to fantasy stories, people expect some fun, engaging narrative and adventurous entertainment along with eye-pleasing visuals and The Green Knight provides nothing expect for beautiful visuals. That suspense and dark toned storytelling seems streched for no reasons and when you understand what actually happened at the end, you just scratch your head like, ‘Oh so this was it.. Why did they take so long for it then?’.

 

 

Anyways, let’s talk about the positives. The performance of Dev Patel is fantastic. One of the main reason why people should watch this film. Second, the entire team who handled technical aspects. From cinematography to background score to costumes to art design to visual effects, everyone from the crew should be hailed for their Brilliant efforts.

 

 

Talking about the direction, David Lowery could have made it better, especially with the slow-paced narrative. That blame can be passed on the screenwriter and so Lowery can be termed as a fine worker with whatever job he has done. The supporting cast adds something more watchable and thanks to them otherwise this would have ended up as an average product. Overall, The Green Knight is watchable and Good but could have been much much better if tried a little harder.

 

 

RATING – 3/5* 🌟🌟🌟
