I had to stop watching this after the first 10 minutes. It was disgusting in more ways than one. The actors seemed not to even put any effort into their acting. I wasn't sure when to laugh or cry. The first scene has a bunch of knights wantonly killing women. It was supposed to be funny - you can tell how by how the actors themselves were almost laughing - but nothing about was funny. There weren't any clever dialogue, timing, or punchlines It really just seemed a product of a sick sense of humor. A few moments later the knights randomly behead somebody - with horrible special effects - and the body stupidly runs around for a few minutes. Recommend avoiding this at all costs.

About this movie


This outrageous time-travel comedy follows the misadventures of a wacky medieval knight (Jean Reno -- MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, THE PROFESSIONAL) and his faithful servant when they suddenly find themselves zapped into the present day! Mayhem rules as these 12th-century visitors try adapting to the wildly confusing modern world! To avoid being stuck here for good, however, they soon begin an all-out cosmic assault on their former castle -- now a luxury hotel -- in their quest to return to the past. But you can be sure THE VISITORS won't leave without first delivering nonstop laughs and outstanding comedy entertainment!
