Black knight

Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

He's about to get medieval on you.

A freak accident sends Jamal Walker (Martin Lawrence), a down-and-out employee in a medieval-themed family entertainment centre, back to the Middle Ages. On his arrival, he is mistaken for a royal messenger and inadvertently foils an assassination attempt on the evil King. For this, he is treated like royalty until the real messenger arrives. Upon discovering that Jamal is an impostor, the evil King has him imprisoned to await execution. Jamal escapes with the help of a broken-down ex-knight and a beautiful chambermaid, and later teams with the uprising to fight the evil King and restore power to the deposed Queen.

Theatrical report

A black knight's tale.

In A knight's tale, Heath Ledger runs around doing medieval stuff in attempt to get the beautiful girlie. In Black knight, Martin Lawrence runs around doing medieval stuff in attempt to get the beautiful girlie. That and Martin's trademark "humour" is the difference between the two films. Now you know enough to decide.
