Today we’re talking about the 2019 film The Knight Before Christmas.
The story is Christmas-y and happy. They avoid awkward tropes and lean into the cutesy cheese. The least believable part was that a teacher could afford the property taxes on such a massive house.
The characters are sweet and heartwarming. They are also completely unrealistic. Brooke is a teacher, but throws money around like an heiress. She’s overly trusting and kind of naive.
Sir Cole is anachronistic in every way. His knight’s code is pure Romantic reconstruction, he speaks modern English, his armour is off a little and his sword is styled more like WIlliam the Lionheart than William the Third.
The rest of the cast are adorable and interesting.
Pure Christmas movie cheese and I loved every part of it. Once you get over the fact that the historical characters are not talking in middle English, it’s freaking adorable.
Visuals and Music
The cinematography is okay and the setting is picturesque. The leads are pretty to look at and the clothes are fantastic.
The music isn’t amazing, but it’s fun.
It kept the interest of the entire family and was a lot of easy fun.
This is a cheesy, angst-free, lovely holiday movie with a great cast and a lot of cuteness.
Final Score: 4 Stars out of 5
