Arthur was a wild young man who ran amok through the forests surrounding Londonium. Throughout his entire life, he had no idea that he was from a royal family that had been betrayed by their subjects. When he was still very young, Arthur drew the sword Excalibur from a stone and his royal heritage was revealed to him. But now he must find a way to dethrone the people who had killed his family and take back the crown that is rightfully his. With the help of a mysterious woman named Guinevere and her followers, Arthur puts together a band of knights to try and recapture the crown.

If you have any respect for the Legend of King Arthur, don't even consider watching this.

I loved this movie!! Total entertainment!! The Music and fast pace of the movie sets it apart from anything I've seen. The movie critics didn't seem to like it but they rarely like anything that's actually fun to watch.

This movie went on little to long for me. Fell sleep on it a couple of times. The action scene with sword were pretty good though.

I just wanted to add my voice to those who thought this movie was extremely bad.

The acting itself wasn't as bad as the movie. The writing, directing and the ridiculous use of CGI and resulting 'special effects" made this film bad. being creative is one thing, but it has to be properly channeled into something that will entertain us, otherwise why would you make it and then release it to us the consuming public?

For anyone reading my assessment before they place a hold on this movie, I strongly encourage to spend your 2 hours on something else. You won't be adequately compensated for the lost time.

First this movie has Charlie Hunnam without a shirt, check out that back. I never watched SoA but I did see him Nicholas Nickleby which I enjoyed. Also I like the fast paced dialogue of Guy Ritchie so I enjoyed this film. A different version of the story with decent fight scenes and likable characters. I've watched it a couple of times and get a good laugh when he meets the knights and then introduces them to his crew.

I wanted to like this movie. I really did. Part of me does, admittedly. However, despite the production values and spectacle, I can't help but think that it's a bit too tiresome for its own good, and it's even a bit boring. Maybe instead of planning a whole franchise, they could have focused on the story and making the movie as good as it should have been.

Awful

If you're looking for a traditional Excalibur-type telling of this story this movie is not for you. If you're looking for a good modern action-adventure, give it a try. Definitely a fun ride.

Just for the record, though I agree with appreciations of a good movie in general, it does tend to further distract from the actual basis and purpose of the Grail legend, which is the actual basis of the Arthurian legends. Which basis of the Grail legends began long before time that Arthur would have lived, if we could pin down for sure IF he lived. So... where's the magic in That? Hint: The SYMBOLISM, not to mention *actual* history of "the Church" is what the whole thing has always been about, albeit recognized as such by very few. WAITTTTT! Who Cares!?! This is about MOVIES! AND (again) where's the magic in that? Well, you either want to know or you don't. And if you do, you won't get it in one frame of a smart phone. Oh, Hey- isn't that (the delving into deeper mysteries) one of the key themes of the grail legends, however Arthur gets Excalibur in or out of that rock? Hmmm, yes, professor, bla, bla, bla... By the way, notice they didn't have a grail in this version - too touchy a theme after the books by Dan Brown, not to mention, "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" (by Baigent, Leigh, & Lincoln) ? Ok, there's another hint AND I'll stop here ;-)
