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.
As his kingdom is being threatened by the Turks, young prince Vlad Tepes must become a monster feared by his own people in order to obtain the power needed to protect his own family, and the families of his kingdom.
A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
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
The clothing worn by multiple individuals is clearly machine-stitched and not had-sewn.
Since the sewing machine would not be invented for nearly 1000 years into the future from the setting of the film, this should not have been possible. See more »
It's Mad, It's Gritty, It's Ritchie, It's The Legend of the Sword
The rotten tomatoes are pure rubbish on this one.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had at the theater in a long time. From the first minute you're hooked into a fantastic world full of knights, mages, and monstrous beasts! If you're a fan of Guy Ritchie's creative style then this film is him at his absolute best! Hilarious banter between new-found companions, fast paced cuts between intense action scenes, and well developed characters setting up for more adventures to come. The fantasy genre hasn't had this great of an opportunity for a franchise since The Lord of The Rings saga. Once I left the theater I wanted to dive right back into the insane world of Arthur and his companions!
A solid 9/10 for the true king!
