Ivanhoe evaluation action

Much of the film deals with 12th-century politics, detailing not only the ongoing contempt between the Saxons and Normans, but also the prejudice against the Jews. In fact, so much of the interaction is centered on religious intolerance, negotiation, deal, ransom stalemate that when the main battle scene finally arrives, a flood of arrows, plumes of black smoke, makeshift bridges over the moat, Battering rams, countless corpses poured down from the tower. This climactic attack is so complex and multifaceted that it almost occupies the final scene of the film. Returning to the slow pace of a bogus witchcraft trial at the true end, the film is more of romance and drama than adventure   .
Under the background of the magnificent historical pictures, the battlefield of blood and fire, and the legendary love of knights and beauties have been vividly interpreted. The film is both a costume knight film and a romance film. The cast is strong, director Richard Toby has a smooth narrative style, especially the scene where two knights each with spears and horses charge against each other, has become one of the audience's unforgettable impressions of this type of film   .

Ivanhoe quotes

  • Isaac of York: I heard the jester call you "lvanhoe." But lvanhoe is Cedric's son, and Cedric called him dead. Who are you, then?

    Ivanhoe: I am King Richard's envoy. Does that make us friends or foes?

    Isaac of York: It does not make you my foe, sire, but then, I am allowed no king.

    Ivanhoe: Why not?

    Isaac of York: Because I am allowed no country. I am deeply in your debt, sire. Tell me how I can repay you.

    Ivanhoe: I seek 150,000 marks of silver - the price of Richard's ransom from Leopold of Austria.

    Isaac of York: Glance around you, sire. What you see is all we've saved from every home we tried to make. A toy or two from every land that cast us out. I am not a rich man, Sir lvanhoe.

    Ivanhoe: No, but you are the patriarch of your tribe. Tell your people Richard must be ransomed. They will find the wealth.

    Isaac of York: I see you love Richard, sire, but he was no friend to my people. Our synagogues were looted to send him on his crusades.

    Ivanhoe: Do you prefer the persecution of his brother, John?

    Isaac of York: There is little to choose between Black John and Richard, yea and nay, if you are a Jew.

    Ivanhoe: Then I pledge you this, Isaac. You're a race without a home or a country. Deliver Richard, and he will deliver your people from persecution.

    Isaac of York: My friend, you ask for more than we can give. - And you offer more than Richard can give.

    Ivanhoe: Do you doubt my word? Write down whatever terms you want. I shall sign them in King Richard's name.

    Isaac of York: We shall need no pledge on paper, you and I. Let Richard promise this instead. Let him promise justice to each man whether he be Saxon or Norman or Jew... for justice belongs to all men or it belongs to none.

    Ivanhoe: But that is a Christian teaching.

    Isaac of York: Strange as it may be, sire, we are taught it too.

  • [Locksley and his men are lying in ambush]

    Clerk of Copmanhurst: Now, Locksley, now! While they're still in range.

    Locksley: Peace, you hothead. Would you slay Sir. Ivanhoe?

    Clerk of Copmanhurst: Sir Ivanhoe died in the Holy Land.

    Locksley: The troubadour is Sir Ivanhoe. He takes those Normans to his father's keep.

    Clerk of Copmanhurst: Ivanhoe defied his father when he went to the war and Cedric cast him out. He will never go there... unless he's turned traitor to the Saxons and his father with him.

    Locksley: Put down your bows. I'll know why he rides with Normans and why he takes those Normans to his father before I'll believe ill of Sir Ivanhoe or Cedric. And so shall you, you rattle pit.

    Clerk of Copmanhurst: Hmm?
