King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
May 12, 2017

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword." Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur's journey from the streets to the throne. When the child Arthur's father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur's uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy...whether he likes it or not.

Went to see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword with my husband and 16-year-old daughter. We all enjoyed it. They put a new spin on the King Arthur legend. So you had swords, magic, Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law...kind of hard to go wrong.

It would be easy to pick it a part, like the "critics" must have, but it was an entertaining action movie. I liked the way they used quick flashbacks to add humor. The magic special effects were top quality and there was a lot of fighting action. I was a little confused by the directors choice to put a Camera Go Pro pointed at a bunch of the actors during a chase scene...

Holly felt the story-telling was a little confusing, but still enjoyed it. I thought it was longer than it needed to be. If you love fantasy movies and a shirtless Charlie Hunnam breathing loudly, this is worth a matinee price.
