Franco and Myles on Tristan & Isolde

The first movie reviews are out – and it doesn’t exactly look good, I’m afraid. Here’s an excerpt from a positive review that I found at Vue Weekly:

“Rufus Sewell is spot-on as the tough-on-the-outside-but-soft-on-the-inside Lord Marke, and James Franco and Sophia Myles each do a fine job as the title characters—unlike Lord of the Rings (another bungled epic in which the story is interrupted every five minutes with a crying and hugging session), there is no over-acting or excessive sentimentality. But perhaps the most important thing in directing an epic is the ability to make a particular time and place both vivid and believable for the audience, and Tristan & Isolde succeeds in this: for two hours and five minutes we are transported to a completely different world. Now, if only someone could go and make an equally good King Arthur movie, all drinks will be on me.”
