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
Henry Cavill and Jai Courtney were the other two finalists for the role of King Arthur, apart from Charlie Hunnam. The final audition comprised two rounds. The first was a sit-down chat with director Guy Ritchie and the second round was a full-fledged audition. Ritchie instantly liked Hunnam after their ninety-minute talk and told him, "I really f***ing dig you, bro. I hope you act as well as you talk, and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow." Hunnam performed equally well in the audition and won the role. See more »
The lighting throughout the film is wrong.
The scenes by candlelight are too bright and contain too little flickering. The daytime scenes inside of building are too bright considering the limited number of windows and their small sizes. See more »
The true test of a fantastic movie is when you get immersed in it. When the show grabs your attention at the onset and keeps you interested the entire time. Your mind doesn't wander about anything else but whats happening on the silver screen. And that is precisely what this movie does. Loved the beginning with the fantasy action. Immediately developed a dislike for the villain well played by Law. Charlie Hunnam had the presence and moxie to carry the lead role for the first time. Most characters were very well developed and the story line was tight. Really enjoyed the soundtrack too. Entertainment at its finest.
Don't let the critics on Rotten Tomatoes fool you. The critic score was 27%, but the audience gave it a 77 %. Sadly the critics only want to give a movie a great rating when there's an oppressed group wronged, and this movie is not that.
Here's to hoping there's a King Arthur II - Knights of the Round Table
