Decent in its way
25 May 2009 | by jwkenneSee all my reviews

First of all, there is no "real" story of Arthur except that there's about a 51% chance that someone called (not necessarily named) Arthur lived in the 5th century, and helped hold off the invasion of Britain by the Saxons for several generations. The rest of it is fiction, and maybe it all is. Some of it is from legends that were floating around the area of modern Ukraine hundreds of years before Arthur, but somehow got attached to him, but most of it is from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, when every writer in Europe wanted to write a better Arthur story than the last guy. (Without copyright laws, no one can say what is "canon" and what is "fanfic".)

"Modern guy finds himself in Camelot" is a very old idea; it's been done dozens of times, and a lot of the attempts have been dumber than this one. At least the young hero has some idea of what's happening to him, instead of being the brainless slacker I expected.

"The Excalibur Kid" is an agreeable time-waster at the worst.
