Synopsis

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 "Fresh take on Arthur. Great acting. Great set and costumes."
  • 4 stars "I liked this movie because I could see Guy Ritchie's influence in the story line. The message in the movie was told very well and was a good twist to an old story. It's a good movie."
  • 2 stars "I really didnt like too much of it. Sorry to say. Wardrobe deserves a real whack, clothing too new, Arthur too clean, haircuts too clean on some too dirty on others, castle too filthy and actors running around in perfectly knited sweaters, accents off, (mate?) English too modern, words too modern. So it was distracting from the story. Merlin the magician is..... where? I found I didnt like Arthur, felt he was a bit too unassuming. Felt like yelling at him to pick up the dam sword and fight."
