‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ DVD Review

Stars: Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou | Written by Guy Ritchie, Joby Harold, Lionel Wigram | Directed by Guy Ritchie

The first movie I saw directed by Guy Ritchie was Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. When I started watching King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, little did I know that I’d find myself comparing the gangster feel of the two. In many ways this represents how confusing a movie it can be, especially when it is about a character like King Arthur

Robbed of his birth right as King, Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) grows up the hard way, fighting for what he can and protecting those around him. Forced to pull a sword out of a stone, he soon begins the journey to becoming the true king with the help of a Mage (Astrid Berges-Frisbey). With his legend growing, this pushes him towards his destiny, a confrontation with

Movie Review – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, 2017.

Directed by Guy Ritchie.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou, Aiden Gillen, Eric Bana, Freddie Fox, Neil Maskell, and Annabelle Wallis.

Synopsis:

Robbed of his birth right, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.

If you don’t like Guy Ritchie’s directing style then you will not enjoy King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. If you are more open to it then it’s an entertaining and inoffensively enjoyable action romp with a great hammy villain performance from Law and a solid leading man turn from Hunnam.

In this incarnation of the King Arthur legend, Arthur (Hunnam) has been raised in a brothel and is an adept street fighter. After escaping

Review: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is Flawed, But Energetic Fantasy

In the middle of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword — writer-director Guy Ritchie’s attempted blend of cockney wit found in the films that made his career with fantasy epics like the Lord of the Rings trilogy — star Charlie Hunnam states, “I’ll talk. I’m happy to talk. But there is no…way…that I am fighting.” Then his piercing blue eyes look at the man in front of him, right before he delivers a punch to their throat. This clear discrepancy between words and action functions in a few ways. First, it is a showcase of Hunnam’s endless charm and great timing, a set of skills that is crucial to the proceedings. Simultaneously, it serves as an apt summary of the film’s tonal balancing act — one that sometimes makes for a disjointed and self-serious bit of cliche, yet at other times creates a firecracker of energy and cool.

Second Opinion – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, 2017.

Directed by Guy Ritchie.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Annabelle Wallis, David Beckham and Poppy Delevingne.

Synopsis:

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.

Guy Ritchie just might be one of the most inconsistent filmmakers working today, yet up against a heap of low expectations, his gonzo take on King Arthur’s origins proves to be a giddily entertaining surprise. Those craving a faithful rendition of the Arthurian legend should absolutely look elsewhere, but as a stylishly over-the-top, banter-filled romp caught somewhere between the fist-pumping bombast of Zack Snyder’s 300 and the stylish grit of 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, it’s

'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' Review: Welcome to a King-Sized Pile of Crap

'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' Review: Welcome to a King-Sized Pile of Crap
Director Guy Ritchie can turn London crime dramas into cinematic lightning – think of his breakthrough movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Snatch (2000) and RocknRolla (2008). But apply his fast cuts and jagged pacing to the Arthurian legend and you get, well, a brutal, bleedin' mess. That about sums up King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, an epic bore that believes if you make a movie long and loud and repetitive enough, audiences will conclude it's saying something profound. Wrong.

Ritchie's take on the once and future king is more a

Humans: Season Two Ratings

Airing on AMC, the Humans TV show is a co-production with Channel 4 and Kudos in Britain. Season two aired in the UK months ago so, could that hurt the ratings for AMC? Because Humans is a co-production, does it need strong ratings? Will it be renewed for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.The Humans TV show takes place in a parallel present, where the latest must-have gadget for any home is a Synthetic.

Humans Season 2 Review

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Can a human and a machine love one another? This is the question Humans dedicates itself to not only asking, but to asking in as many ways possible.

The show exists in a setting familiar to most science-fiction fans: a world in which lifelike humanoid machines populate society’s homes and businesses. Like the hosts of Westworld or the replicants of Blade Runner, they’re anatomically identical to humans and nearly blend in with humans. However, unlike hosts and replicants, the “Synths” of Humans do not think, trick, manipulate, feel or lie. That is, except for a select few – Niska, Mia, and a handful of others – who are disrupting expectations due to their “consciousness code.”

The second season of Humans picks up a few months after its first season and opens with Niska (Emily Berrington), perhaps the most intriguing of the conscious Snyths,

‘Humans 2.0′ Review

While I’ve known of Humans and how well the show was received, to my shame I never really watched it. When I got the chance to watch Humans 2.0 though, I decided to dive in and take it from the starting point of the second series. Through the catch-up I was able to pick-up on the importance of characters like Mia (Gemma Chan) and Leo (Colin Morgan) and the situation they were in now. With the initial focus on Niska (Emily Berrington) though at the start of the season, she soon became my favourite Synth.

If you’ve seen any British television or movies in the past few years, you’ll know why Humans 2.0 stands out. With the likes of Ruth Bardley, Neil Maskell, and Katherine Parkinson in the cast this is impressive, then add Carrie-Anne Moss and this takes the cast to an even higher level.
