When young Arthur's uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) decides he wants the crown for himself, he murders his brother and sister-in-law, leaving Arthur an orphan. The boy escapes and finds a home at a brothel, where he joins a gang and runs the back alleys of the city, learning self defense in order to survive.

He's challenged one day to get the sword Excalibur out of the stone — many have tried before him and failed. When he succeeds, Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) is instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur and forced to make some hard choices. Throwing in with the Resistance and a young woman known as The Mage, he must learn to master the sword, face his demons and unite the people to defeat his uncle, finally taking his rightful place as King in order to restore peace to the kingdom.

  • 5 stars "Enjoyed different approach to the King Arthur legend, great action and cig portrayals."
  • 1 star "Too much happening at once. Hard to understand speech. So boring that I went to sleep. Save your money and watch later at home. I wouldn't waste my time though watching at home"
  • 1 star "If you enjoy special effects and computer generated action this is the movie for you. If you prefer a well written story, a solid progression of story tension, skip this movie. The actors are wasted in this amateurish production aimed to satisfy the attention span of a three year old. A major waste of time and money."
