Does thou mock the audience?.....

Jamal, a low-level worker at an amusement park with a medieval theme, finds himself sent back to the year 1328 after he falls in the moat, trying to retrieve a necklace.

Before he realises what has happened, he finds himself mistaken for a messenger from Normandy, enlisted in a plot to kill the king, not to mention falling for the leader of the plan....

If the DVD artwork annoys you, wait until you see the actual film.

For some reason, in the late nineties/early 2000's, Hollywood thought that Lawrence was a dead cert at the box office, because of the popularity of Bad Boys, and his TV work. But no, they mistook him for Will Smith.

All of his output has been poor to mediocre, and this has to be the lowest ebb in his career. If you thought Chris Tucker was annoying, meet Jamal, one of the most abhorrent characters I've seen in a very long time.

He's offensive, loud, shouts everything he says, loud, says 'Daaammmnnn!' a lot, and he is also very loud.

To take an instant dislike to the films protagonist is a major blow for a film, and I was willing Regan to end his constant mugging at the camera several times throughout the film.

And then for no reason (other than money), Tom Wilkinson pops up in a worthless role, and just makes the film all the more insufferable. Not because Wilkinson is in it, he does a good job, it's just the fact that this film will be on his resume for good.

It truly is an unfunny ordeal, offering nothing more than showcasing Lawrence's 'talent', and how loud and irritating a person could be.

If you are a Lawrence completest......you need help.

The Black Mark...On Lawrence's Career.

The Black Knight (2001): Dir: Gil Junger / Cast: Martin Lawrence, Tom Wilkinson, Marsha Thomason, Daryl Mitchell, Kevin Conway: There is no reason to see this film unless one finds the sight of someone swallowing a mouthful of horse manure to be funny. It is an utterly useless comedy with a racial title. It stars Martin Lawrence as a theme park employee who sees a mysterious gold object in the water, which sucks him into a world where knights prowled the grounds and castles towered the horizons. He sees it as an act until he witnesses a beheading. After fainting he awakens in a castle ruled by a tyrant King for which he ends up entertaining using modern music. Boring comedy trudging in formula waste and predictable gutters. Directed by Gil Junger who made the much better, but not by much Ten Things I Hate About You, although viewers may come up with more than ten reasons to hate this film. The production is decent enough but the screenplay is a formula miss. Lawrence is reciting his regular comic routine with predictable results. We know that he will make a difference in the lives of the civilians using his modern touch and we don't care. Tom Wilkinson is a sorry sight as the King. There is the stereotypical slave girl whom Lawrence sleeps with. He also beds the King's daughter for good measure. This film should be a black mark on his career. Score: 2 / 10

Laugh out loud funny

If you want a film with a history lesson, hook into national geographic channel. If, however, you have 90 odd minutes to spare, have a good old fashioned belly laugh or ten with this. Corny jokes? tick. visual humor? tick. couple of eurrgh moments? tick. Try and be in a mellow mood before you view, and you won't regret spending time with this one. Also, a nifty soundtrack, though not all over the film, and some great (although there is a bit of a theme) olde worlde talking gags. There's some great looking maidens in it as well. Considering it was made in 2001, it has aged quite well, but some sports references could leave you scratching your head. I loved it, and seeing as it didn't hurt anyone else, i don't care who knows it! There was a ready made set up for a sequel, but as far as i know, it never happened. If anyone knows different, please let me know, as i wouldn't hesitate to watch it!
