Monty Python and the Holy Grail Movie Review. The crazy British movie from middle ages. King Arthur and his knights on the famous quest.
The British comedy film released in the year 1975 named Monty Python and the Holy Grail was directed by Jones and Gilliam. The comedy in the movie was performed by the Monty Python group.
The Monty Python and the Holy Grail followed the legend of King Arthur. The story begins when Arthur along with his squire Pasty hired some knights and goes for fighting the battle with the black knight who resists fighting although he has his limbs chopped off. Arthur and his knights reach Camelot but Arthur decides not to enter. By the instructions of God they seek out to the Holy Grail.
So on their quest to find the Holy Grail, Arthur and the knights have to face a number of obstacles. One of the hardest one was coming across the killer rabbit who is guarding the cave which has got the location of the holy grail. The harmless rabbit turns out to be a viscous monster. The Trojan bunny scene of the film was quite spoofed. The knights together build a Trojan bunny for invading the French castle. They hence wheel up the bunny to the castle and leave but they forget to get in the bunny.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail are a really joyous movie to watch. It is full of humor, gags and timeless quotes as well. Normally a low budget movie is made with unrealistic stuff but this movie is a lot different. It is actually worth watching.
Apart from the vicious rabbit, Arthur and the knights also run into other silly characters on their not so epic quest. They meet the randy vestal virgins, bloodthirsty torso, taunting Frenchmen and more. The Monty Python and the Holy Grail Movie provided a chance to the Pythons to unite again after the end of their TV series. Although a few of the members of the group enjoyed great success but united with the storyline of King Arthur they used their comedic creative abilities to make the audience laugh again. The last 2 seasons of Monty Python’s Flying Circus lost the spark and they didn’t seem funny anymore but this movie certainly showed their abilities.
