    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. Splendid entertainment, young in spirit but accomplished in all aspects with the fullness of spirit and sense of ease that comes only with experience.
  4. 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.
  5. A big, gorgeous, sprawling swashbuckler that delivers its diversions in grand, uncomplicated fashion.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    There's terrific chemistry between Perez and Auteuil.
  7. de Broca's efficient fencing-mania melodrama brings little that's original to the table.
