    I really like the motivation of Arthur. In contrary to mainstream hero motivation suck as for the greater good or to claim his king place, this version of Arthur just wanna kill the bad king for revenge. He wants to cut king head for his own personal reason. I am cool with that. MORE HUMANIST HERO HOLLIWOOD

    I find it funny the way everyone seems to hate Ed Sheran’s GOT cameo yet no one cares about David Beckham’s cameo in this, which is probably weirder.

    This is a really okay movie, it's one of those great 'caught it on TV by accident films', which I did.
    Problems is that in the middle it stops being King Arthur and sort of turns into Robin Hood. But hey was enjoyable, some really cool montages and a SUPERB score.

  • FZ_DracoHart

    If only I wasn't such a medieval era freak, Arthurian legends armchair researcher and a nitpicker for sensible fantasy, I might've been able to finish this movie. But nope nope nope, dropped it like hot potato in the middle--but actually I might've been strong enough to endure the underwhelming plot that completely dodged my expectation. But the soundtrack....THE FUCKING SOUNDTRACK was too out of place that my eyes were twitching in cringe.
    If this had been a King Arthur rehash but in something like...say...cyberpunk? Steampunk? Modern setting? I probably would've loved it in a heartbeat. The choppy weird shifts, the soundtrack and overstylized scenes and plot will make better--if not marvelous--mesh with those genres. BUt no, no,no, not with supposedly classical medieval style Arthur rehash.
    TL;DR Maybe I'm too much of an Arthurian purist that I found this movie is...really distasteful (This comes from someone who loves Mad Max and doesn't give a fuck about Thor or any Marvel superhero flicks)

    This should have been an HBO mini series instead. It would have been better paced.

  • Shaunté Wooodard

    The reason why this movie was so much of a flop is because the knowledge of his original origins. Historically King Arthur was a black Hebrew. There is a lot of evidence that state this, if this movie would’ve came out in 1999 this movie would’ve been a record setting hit because of all the kids that watch the cartoon every Sunday morning (excalibur be my strength!). The people who made this movie understand this as they was doing research themselves. However just like Spiderman homecoming, Exodus: Gods and Kings, Gods of Egypt, and many more Hollywood continues to keep what was as supposed to be a colored hero into the color sidekick.

    This movie is so underrated. This is an awesome movie to watch with the family on a Friday night.

  • TrueLifeAdventures

    The African War Elephants were amazing! The Matrix style fight scene with Arthur and the Blacklegs did not work for me though. That was by far the weakest CGI in the movie, which is funny considering that's also what I think about that scene with Neo and all the Smiths. But overall, I was thoroughly entertained by this movie!

    I went into this movie not knowing what to expect. No reviews, nothing. Watched it, the magic felt super cool which is something I enjoyed. The music also worked really well. What brought this movie down for me was the choppiness of scenes. It wasn’t just the fun dialogue part in the beginning, it lasted nearly all throughout the movie. It was too much to keep up with, I’m sure I missed some details along the way. Wouldn’t hurt to give it another watch though. If it was three hours I definitely would’ve stuck around

    I thought this movie was absolutely perfectly executed in its most important aspect: the sword. From the time he gets the sword, to unlocking its full potential was masterfully done. And I've also never seen a movie represent the destruction and power of magic so well other than Warcraft surprisingly which was also an amazing movie that I didn't expect.

    "extended cut" Ditto on that.
    I'm waiting for "virtual reality" technology to get to a point where they can reproduce "new" Columbo episodes or old movies with Cary Grant and other "classic" stars looking, talking and acting exactly like they did in their movies. Movies with the same look and plot where you can't tell the difference between the original or new version. Or"new" "Episode such and such" after the series ended.
    Even a home version of those "glasses" with a total submersion VR would be nice.
    I'm waiting for a "total submersion" type of virtual reality to come out.....where everything is absolutely real. Even "walking" or "running" through the virtual reality environment. Or a jet "trainer" you can use at home that bounces up and down and all around. Or stand or sit there and carry on a conversation with some movie star or character from the past like he's actually sitting there talking to you.
    I'm sixty years old but I've been way, way ahead of this techno stuff since reading Future Shock by Alvin Toffler when I was sixteen. I got on that "BBS"? when the Internet used the telephone. (What a bitter disappointment the Internet has become) I grew up reading Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov and all the other science fiction writers. As a matter of fact I saw Ray at one of his last appearances in Riverside shortly before he passed away.

    One of the best ever made. I loved the whole idea of it, the cgi was great, the setup was great. It's a shame it flopped because it was meant to be a 6 part movie franchise which would be a million times more awesome than the played out superhero franchise bullshit. I stick to comics on that

    King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword - Movie Review
    JDSCT 4 months ago:
    “Just saw the movie.... really enjoyed it!!! Unfortunately, it seems to be crashing hard at the box office. It's too bad. Those who have seen it seem to like it... just not enough people going to see it. Boooo"
    I think part of the drop at cinemas is the liberal takeover of Hollywood that's bleeding into the movies; See the Oscars and Emmys; And the fact that movies are just too damned expensive. Going to movies is a L-U-X-U-R-Y.
    Every aspect of our lives is either taxed, fined, levied or otherwise over-regulated and all our basic necessities are.....luxuries.
    It's getting almost too expensive to f-ing BREATH, let alone shell out 20 to 50 bucks just to go to a show. And again the liberalism permeating movies today is scaring away movie fans. And I'm one of these guys usually easy to please and usually leave my brain, (and my politics), at the door when I watch movies. After raising political hell online all day I like to watch a movie, do a Homer Simpson, and just go; Duh.
    I was thinking....I got reaquainted with an old girlfriend. Her mother loved movies so every month we ended up doing this “movie night” until her mom, who was in a wheelchair, passed away. I'm telling you, the money I shelled out was a huge hit every month that I could feeeel. “Put a hurt on me” “made me feel the pain”, however you wanted to put it. The cost sure took away a lot of the enjoyment of going to the movies.
    I remember when we had double features as a kid. Then our old theater was sold to Pussycat Theater which showed porn movies....right on Main Street. The same “E” Street we used to cruise on as kids in San Bernardino California. Anybody remember cruising?
    I like movies from the 30,s, 40's and 50's and some from the sixties. THOSE were movies.
    Also I'm hard of hearing. Every movie, every documentary seems to have this obligatory LOUD "dramatic" "music" soundtrack that goes from the beginning to the end almost without pause and most often drowns out the dialogue of the actors whom you can't understand anyway because it's like none of them have been properly trained to Speak To An Audience. “Elucidate”? Is that the word? “Articulate? I know there's an “actor” word for this.
    It's like they're mumbling most of the time, and again, in addition to the godawful "music" blasting throughout the movie most of the time I can never understand what in the hell they're saying. Movies today aren't geared, At All, to the older generation. Of course they've got these hi-falootin' gadgets you can wear that'll add subtitles to the movies...What a world.
    Why is it that I can understand every word of movies made in the good ole days even with music but I need subtitles for every movie I watch today even without “music”? Even when they “stage whisper” you can understand what the actor is saying in these old movies. Even in British movies. When I see a movie made today with British actors I don't even waste my time checking it out.
    I'm not into these “blogs”, but I wonder if this issue has ever been discussed before? I've gone ahead and committed this comment to a document on my laptop for future reference because I find myself, like today, bringing this subject up so often.
    While I'm here I'll post my Audie Murphy letter:
    "Jack Elam" Why can't I ever remember this guys name? He's one of my favorites. Elam was a genuinely nice guy and a close personal friend of Audie Murphy. And one of the best “bad guys” in the business.
    Audie Murphy (Jack Elam) Story
    Audie Murphy was the real deal. There's a story by Jack Elam, who was a good friend of Murphys, about when they were up in Idyllwild near where I live. Getting a drink in some bar. Three guys came in one of them started hassling Elam. Pulled him by the back of his hair and said he needed a hair cut. "Audie spun around and hit him and never said a word" He mentions that Audie was short and that these guys were big. They took one look at Audie Murphy, picked up their friend and got the hell out of the bar.
    I've got an article with a picture: He picked this guy up who was walking in a rain storm. The guy stuck a gun in his side and slapped him in the mouth. Tells him he's going to steal his car. When they pull into a gas station Audie decides to fight. This guy is like six feet six inches tall. Both the cop and Audie in the picture are staring UP at this guy who is a frigging Mess. Audie beat the holy crap out of him. The caption in the article mentions Audie looks like he's ready to go to a movie premier. He ends up escaping but Audie and this cop overpower him as he's wrestling with some woman he's trying to steal clothes from. . I had the same thing happen to me once except I was doing a part time job as a security guard. This guy came up to my desk with his hand in his shirt saying he had a gun and would kill me if I didn't open the pharmacy in this medical building I was watching. This ended up almost the same way accept this “hero” ended up puking his guts out in front of a bunch of nurses after I had dragged him into the adjoining hospital. Broke my damn glasses when he sucker punched me.
    8-22-17 Here's a coincidence: I ordered a rare and obscure book online after reading about it in an article; Gods, Graves and Scholars by C.W. Ceram. A book about the history of archaeology. (A TERRIFIC book) I'm about halfway through it when I'm watching the movie Brotherhood of the Rose with Robert Mitchum. And at about twenty three minutes into the movie Gods, Graves and Scholars is used a code breaker in the movie. What are the chances...?
    Dante's Inferno - Clair Trevor, Spencer Tracy 1935
    This is the first time I've seen this movie. And I've watched a lot of old movies.
    When I was 14 or 15, almost fifty years ago, I was at Lake Tahoe. I was with my parents on a trip to visit old friends and decided to walk into town. I met this weird character who was about twenty or so. And he had me panhandling on the street with him. He would shout out "she walks, she talks she crawls on her belly like a reptile". And cracked "Watch this man step in front of a fast moving automobile". Like one of those "barkers". I had never heard anybody say anything like that again until I heard Spencer say "they crawl upon their bellies" and I couldn't help wondering if the man I met had gotten “crawl on her belly” from this movie. (At the 14 minute mark)

    I can't get behind this so much;
    The story and plot was sub decent,
    The characters were not defined, distinguishable or special,
    It started to drag on after a while because you aren't interested in the central conflict and you don't care about the characters goals.
    But the acting was good, the action was decent and the visuals are great.
    At the very least it is an epic spectacle.

  • keriezy

    I don't know what movie I watched but it sure wasn't the one you're talking about. This movie was such a mess. The dialogue was awful and out of sync with the world they created. The jump cuts gave me a headache. The inconsistent storytelling was annoying as well as redundant (how many times must we flash to the dock?). It was a hard movie to watch.

    Ugh. This film feels like Guy Richie accepted this project because he had bills to pay. I agree that this would have been a spectacle IF it had far more time to better explore the characters and the scenario giving it some depth and dimension, HOWEVER it did not. It seems like if you're between the ages of 8 and 12 years old and had never seen any other fantasy film, you would have throughly enjoyed yourself.

    I did not like this film. Except for the score, it was pretty exciting and badass at times. But everything else, ugh. The BAD cgi, the montage editing (which works for a lot of films, but not this one) was just horrid in my opinion. No, I'm not just some cardboard dude with no personality and a stick up my ass, I'm pretty charismatic truth be told. I'm actually a very passionate aspiring filmmaker, so I'm naturally critical with films. So no offense to those who enjoyed it.

    Oh my god what a terrible ugly movie to watch ! So boring and generic and the music is downright lame , they screwed up the entire Mythos with hard rock music and compressed CGI crap ! And the best part is the SJW bullshit , a black man as the commander of the 13th century british army Lol! Yeah right haha !!
