I think that many people already know what they want to see before viewing this movie. They see their favorite interpretation of this legend and they are looking for a movie which follows those lines. This movie will not. It is unique in that way and concentrates on specific aspects of the legend while ignoring others. This does give the movie a feeling of being somewhat incomplete (like watching a cut version of the legend on TV) but for what it is, it is not a bad movie. I thought Connery was a good choice for Arthur and that he did a good job in the role. There are clear historical flaws in it, but they do not detract from the enjoyment of the movie. View it with a open mind and don't compare a unique interpretation of the story with others, expecting it to have all the same elements.
