"Blood on the Land: The Making of a King" is a fairly straightforward look into the making of the quite mediocre 2004 film "King Arthur". I was pleased to see various members of the cast speak, as I really like Clive Owen and Ioan Gruffudd, although in my opinion they didn't really get to say enough. Other members of cast and crew shared their ideas and opinions on the film and its making. There's also a bit of filming shown, and some detail given about the special effects used, and information about the music, which is always interesting to hear. Funnily enough, I found the best bit to be when they discussed the fighting scenes, and the training and choreographing that went into these scenes for both the principal actors and the extras. That was really interesting to watch. This is a standard "making-of" that doesn't really offer anything particularly fresh, but I found it enjoyable enough.
