Dan G (ca) wrote: Knightriders is one of the all time great completely unknown films. It is a buried treasure that was likely buried and largely maligned upon its release due to coming from George "Night of the Living Dead" Romero during the time period between Dawn and Day of the Dead, and for not being a zombie movie (or a horror flick of any kind). People knew what they wanted from Romero, and this wasn't it. This is a pity, as it is by far Romero's best film, and in all honesty, probably one of the best films of the 1980's (at least the first half of the 80's). Ed Harris delivers a performance of staggering emotional strength and fanaticism. Even professional gore effects and stunts man Tom Savini delivers a masterful performance. This is a great ensemble cast, human interest film that ranks up there with the best Robert Altman works. The film's only weak point is its dated early 80's "Dukes of Hazard" style chase scenes dealing with the yokel "rednecks" coming to see the performances, as well as the backwoods police who harass the troupe. Some of this seems almost like it was an afterthought that was thrown in attempting to appease people who might have started tuning out of the film at this time. Ultimately, though these scenes are pretty silly (they are VERY "Dukes of Hazard"-ey), they don't drag the tone of the movie down too much (at least they allow us to see Rocky the lady knight kicking butt some more). This is a truly wonderful film with many emotional ups and downs for the cast and the audience alike. If nothing else, watch it for Stephen King's hilarious cameo as a slobby redneck commentator.
Michael M (gb) wrote: Maybe its age, maybe it's my own personal tastes, but honestly when I rewatched this movie I didn't find it particularly funny. The ideas behind a lot of the jokes are funny, but in their execution they mostly just made me chuckle. There were only a couple moments that really gave big audible laughs for me. Still, I was chuckling pretty consistently, and the ideas are clever. I like how it manages to be cynical and cheery at the same time, showing all the misery that comes from Christmastime with family as well as all the heart. Probably my favorite scene is when Chevy Chase gets locked in the attic and to pass the time he starts watching old home movies he found, only to fall through the floor when his wife unknowingly pulls the stairs out from under him. It's a genuinely heartwarming scene followed by a really funny moment. There's just not enough other stuff in the movie that's THAT heartwarming or THAT funny though. At least for me. I still like it a lot, it's an immensely likable movie. It covers all the insanity of Christmas in clever ways, and while there weren't a ton of belly laughs the chuckles were consistent the whole way through. I know it's a Christmas tradition for a lot of people, and while it isn't for me, I still have a lot of respect for it.

Some of it doesn't work but the energy of Lee's direction overshadows it. Performances down the line are very good. Delroy Lindo playing the father these street kids never had practically steals the entire movie for me. If i'm not giving 'Clockers' enough credit thank David Simon and 'The Wire' for making all movies like this pale in comparison.
