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.
An alternative version of the King Arthur legend. As a boy, Arthur is left orphaned after his father, King Uther Pendragon, and mother are killed in a war waged against them by Vortigern, who then assumes the throne. Arthur flees and is raised in a brothel, knowing very little of his birthright. Vortigern wants Arthur dead, to ensure there is no claimant to the throne. The legends foretell that only the next king will be able to draw Excalibur, Uther's sword, from the rock where it is lodged. So, in an effort to identify Arthur, Vortigern forces all the young men of Arthur's age to attempt to draw out the sword. Now it is Arthur's turn.Written by
At the end of the movie when King Arthur is talking to the Viking rep., He switches from working on the Round Table in a white shirt to a maroon vest and eating on the completed round table. A few more switches in clothing occur in the next sequence of knighting with Excalibur too. See more »
The reviews does this movie no justice. it doesn't have to be the old story with no creativity.
I believe this movie would have been a master piece of a series due to
the huge amount of event packed into 2 hours, but this is no criticism
on how great the movie is and how the numbers of this site doesn't do
it justice. 90% of the negative reviews comes under the lame excuse of
"that's not how king Arthur is supposed to be". If you actually want a
movie where you know everything already starting from the story,
characters and twists then I'd call you the stupidest ever. Yes this
isn't your typical king Arthur movie, and that adds even more to the
awesomeness of it.amnt saying the movie is flawless, no movie is, but
it was great starting from acting, animation, story, music tracks,
everything. Again would have been better off it was a series and I
hope there would be a sequel including the knights of the round table,
sure Lancelot and some dramatic betrayal or even Arthur's betrayal
himself to the kingdom.
