  1. 90
    A delight from top to bottom, packed with romance, adventure, beautifully executed swordplay and a sumptuous period look.
  2. Movie is over-the-top but enjoyable entertainment.
  3. This is effective as straight-ahead, action-packed storytelling, losing some of its energy only in the final stretch.
  4. It revives an innocently pleasurable genre - shades of Burt Lancaster and Errol Flynn - that combines lusty adventure, humor, the great outdoors and satisfying storytelling without having to concoct it in a special-effects lab.
  5. 75
    The story is a mess. But On Guard was directed by the reliable Philippe de Broca, who imbues the whole affair with high-calorie silliness.
  6. 70
    There's terrific chemistry between Perez and Auteuil.
  7. de Broca's efficient fencing-mania melodrama brings little that's original to the table.
