Storyline Heading
The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londonium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword's influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind. He joins the rebellion and a shadowy young woman named Guinevere.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Drama - While this latest screen version of the legendary English fantasy character has the magic and adventure one would expect, this is a distinctly different take on the title character and story, with a lot of grit and grime and modern humor with no trace of romance or other traditional, classical touches. Young adults, in particular males, are the target audience. Fans of stars Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law will definitely enjoy while other familiar stars such as Djimon Hounsou and especially Eric Bana have much smaller roles. The violence is largely with little visible blood, but for a PG-13 rated film the action is still brutal and intense for young kids, and there are scary images and sequences with creatures and some language.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good ...one of the best realized early Medieval settings captured on film. The CGI is well integrated... ...it might be best to enjoy this iteration on its own merits without an expectation of additional segments. Admittedly, it's entertaining to enjoy Ritchie's spin on the material...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Michael Bay has often been accused of turning in feature length motion pictures so over-edited that they feel like trailers for themselves, but I don't think Bay has ever made a movie as frantically, pointlessly, tediously busy as "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.”

USA Today Full Review
Average But this Sword should have stayed in the stone. A well-intentioned albeit unfocused effort to retell the legend, King Arthur offers a little campy fun yet is only a so-so stab at something new.

NY Post Full Review
Average 'Arthur' is also a total sausagefest.
