Goddamn it, another writer/director movie! But cut it some slack.
3 April 2017 | by iantraderSee all my reviews

Now, I'm a sucker for medieval stuff like this, so I watched it in spite of the reviews.

It's actually not a bad story as these things go (but crying out for a sequel which will probably never happen - if by same writer/director, thank goodness!) but it's desperately marred by some poor story development and very poor dialogue. Apart from the general tenor, it's anachronistic and not always delivered well. It jars and stands out. For an example of tongue-in-cheek medieval dialogue that works look no further than Schwarzenegger's Conan.

And why, oh why, change the names? Arthfael, Myrrdin, and is Olwen supposed to be Guinevere? What's the point? The whole thing's a fiction anyway, so if it was supposed to be for 'historical accuracy' it's a total nonsense.

It's probably getting the IMDb rating it deserves. As a sword & sorcery epic it's not up to much but if you like the Arthur mythos then give it a whirl.
