King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Robbed of his royal lineage as a child when his uncle usurped the throne, Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) returns to the kingdom once ruled by his father and draws the legendary sword Excalibur from the stone. He must then learn to harness the sword's power in order to lead a rebellion against the tyrannical Vortigern (Jude Law) and reclaim his birthright.

    More and more I am discovering a disconnect between myself and the vast majority of movie critics. I have loved a lot of movies this year that they have disliked, and that trend continues with The King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. People going into this movie shouldn't be expecting something similar to the King Arthur films they're accustomed to. Guy Ritchie took the King Arthur character that everyone knows and turned him into someone likable. Charlie Hunnam stars as the born king, Arthur whose father is murdered as Arthur's uncle, Vortigern (Jude Law) seizes the crown. The film traces Arthur's journey from the brothel life all the way to the throne. Robbed of his birthright, Arthur pulls the sword from the stone and finds himself become a threat to the king. From the opening scene the cinematography and editing served up Ritchie's style. The sheer energy in every scene is almost breathtaking. Even when slow motion is used, the atmosphere is as taught as a bowstring. All the battles are incredibly exciting, even when at times it is hard to follow what exactly is going on. Camera movement is fresh and provokes adrenaline. It's hard to look away.

    This movie was a good watch but not a great movie. I like a movie that dares to try to do some things differently. I think we should reward that effort even if the movie is not as good at something that's a little safer. There were some strong performances, some great action sequences and also some pretty substantial storytelling gaffes. The lead is a good-looking guy but not King Arthur and I think a poor casting choice. People who will enjoy this movie are the kind of folks that can watch a Ray Harryhausen Sinbad movie and enjoy it for what it is. Serious Arthurian Legend fans will probably be mad. To them I say lighten up and enjoy it. I would probably give this film three and a half stars if I could but unfortunately we have to choose whole stars. For those of you who are anticipating the reboot of Excalibur...this is not it.

    In some what I'm not all that surprised that Guy Ritchie decided to do a King Arthur film, though I wasn't quite expecting it to be a film done in Guy Ritchie style. In a sense it sort of comes across as being his typical dark and gritty film yet in another sense it is also very much an heroic fantasy. In a way it is a shame that the film flopped the way it did because it was actually a pretty enjoyable film, and I certainly quite like Ritchie's style of directing. Okay, a part of me didn't quite get the humor of the piece, particularly since we had a similar style in all of his films. However, what we do need to remember is the Ritchies style has always been very gritty, and King Arthur is no exception.

    One of the best action/comedy of 2017 for me & my wife. I can even count the amount of times we watched it. I really hope a part two is in the mix; the series is not left to die like I am number four. The choice in actor(s), great. The story, the back story, the design, set design, consumes, sound quality. In 4K!!! Omg! Jude’s Gilliam character could have used more depth, so too for the mage but part two has the opportunity to expand on such things as key character development. Hey fantastic beast part 2 is almost out. Providing more character depth that was lacking in part one.

    Excalibur > King Arthur

    I had high hopes for this film. Guy Ritchie has been one of my well-liked directors ever since Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Plus I really enjoy watching Charlie Hunnam. Unfortunately, this retelling of the Arthurian legend is somewhere on the lower end of the spectrum. It starts off well enough but it devolves into a CG fest which I admit is super pretty to look at on 4K but doesn't offer much originality or substance. The audio and visuals combine for a fantastic presentation but again, if you are not a fan of over the top CG this may not be for you.

    First off, if you like Guy Ritchie you should like his take on King Arthur. A lot of style and different take on the classic mythology. The movie is very entertaining from beginning to end. I know a lot of people had a problem with the magic in the movie but they must've forgot that A) King Arthur is primarily based on folklore, not factual history and B) uh, Merlin!!!! Magic has been a key element to the mythology surrounding Knights of the round table and Excalibur. If you want a fun movie and keep an open mind, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by Guy Ritchie's take.

    This IS a really fun and great movie. Since this is a Guy Ritchie film, you should expect a really experimental storytelling structure. I enjoyed it but can understand if someone prefers an A >B>C style plot. The 4K transfer is great and matches my in theater experience. The audio is also good with the option of Atmos of Dolby Digital. The only reason I am giving this review a low rating is because the the packaging was missing the added blu-ray disc that was suppose to come with it. This was a big no no but since it was sealed I can't really fault Best Buy. I

    ....if you take the swords and change them into guns and put everyone in suit you will see it is a vintage Guy Richie collection, having said that I enjoy this adaptation of the legend... it is highly entertaining...and very star heavy, even David Beckham enjoyed his cameo....we all know how the story goes and all, so this a different take on the legend, he did a better take that some of the other versions,..sometimes improvisation is good as long as you can make it very watchable and this one is ...for me that is..watch it and enjoy
