Storyline

Allie Pennington, the daughter of two Knights-of-the-Round-Table scholars, begins classes at Avalon High where, new to the area, she slowly discovers herself involved in the prophecy of King Arthur's reincarnation. Her being there is no accident. The Order of the Bear, an ancient secret society awaiting Arthur's return, may be at hand, and Allie's own parents, if not members of the Order, are at least Order wannabes. Allie becomes quickly linked to two classmates: Will, the school's revered pretty-boy quarterback (whose girlfriend is having relations on the side with his best friend, and whose dark, brooding step-brother lurks about threateningly), is the most obvious Arthur candidate. Miles, the observant and witty school geek, suffers psychic flashes that always prove true and may be the reincarnation of Merlin. As the Arthur prophecy seems to indeed be unfolding before her, Allie finds herself in the protectorate role, guarding Will against the forces of Mordred who're out to ... Written by statmanjeff

Goofs

When Will comes over for hamburgers, Allie's mother starts quoting poetry. She explains it's a poem about how Arthur became the leader Britain needed. The lines come from an actual poem, "The Lady of Shalott", by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The person being described in the poem is Sir Launcelot. King Arthur is not mentioned at all. See more »

Allie Pennington: Excuse me?
Miles: You're making a tactical error of monumental proportions right now.

Slow but Enjoyable
25 March 2020 | by kyleshabetSee all my reviews

I haven't read the book but from what I have researched into it the movie actually brought surprises and switched it up compared to the book. So I appreciate that.

The overall plot is very slow and what promises a "fantasy" genre story isn't the case until the last 20 minutes. Before that it's full of teen melodrama that is stretched so thin that you really don't care for any characters.
