Sheep Movie Review: The Kid Who Would Be King (2019)

The Kid Who Would Be King (2019)
January 25, 2019
Director: Joe Cornish
Writer: Joe Cornish
Stars: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Denise Gough, Dean Chaumoo
Rated: PG

Runtime: 2h
Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Old-school magic meets the modern world when young Alex stumbles upon the mythical sword Excalibur. He soon unites his friends and enemies, and they become knights who join forces with the legendary wizard Merlin. Together, they must save mankind from the wicked enchantress Morgana and her army of supernatural warriors.

Went to sees The Kid Who Be King with my 17-year-old daughter. We liked it, but it isn't one you need to run to the theater to see. There are some funny scenes, but there wasn't a lot of effort put into the script...very unimaginative. Just a bunch of cliche and predictable moments with a low-budget feel. Definitely aimed at elementary age kids. The special effects weren't consistent. The flaming warrior skeletons were pretty awesome and scary...but Morgana in her "dragon" form was laughable.

Wait for the Blu-ray/DVD. Probably should have been a made for TV movie.
