Excellent story and great action, loved it
9 out of 10 *Yawns* The reluctant hero in search of a reason to be a hero.??????
Best summer movie.
One of the worst movies with very poor acting skills!!! Wast of my time.
What the...?! I couldn't finish it. Guy Ritchie's trademark quick flashbacks to see how events transpired, does not work with this theme. Mix that with trying his hand at fantasy just didn't work.
What a fantastic movie, arose a lot of strong emotions. It kept me engaged the entire time. A must see and the soundtrack was amazing. Don't miss this one!
The legend of King Arther was told very well with a Guy Ritchie influence. This movie is worth seeing. It's better than Wonder Woman.
I really enjoyed the movie, I wish the theatre was a bit warmer as that was the only thing that I didn't enjoy while watching the movie. King Arthur is an awesome movie, I only wish it was longer because I enjoyed the 2 hours of watching King Arthur so much! I don't know what their problems were over at Rotten Tomatos... maybe the critics are a bunch of rotten tomatoes. Great job to everyone who made the film happen!
Fresh take on Arthur. Great acting. Great set and costumes.
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.
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.
His innocence of being an heir to the throne is what I like and my dislike is the hardship to convince him to fight.
The show was fabulous they released it at the wrong time... SO WORTH SEEING
Is there a vote for Zero stars? This was Crap!!! Story telling was garbage. It was like they took LODRs, and the Iliad and then added the characters of the Arthur legend. I wish I could get my 2 hours back.
Lot's of action. Better than I thought going in. Still like the Clive Owen version of Arthur better.
The scenery, costumes, action scenes, etc were spectacular despite the poor ratings. We were definitely entertained by the developing story and all the action.
One of my favourite movies so far this year. I think I'm a teenie bit in love with Charlie Hunnam now.
Loved it!! It was like Lord of the Rings meets a Marvel movie.
Ok so this was a fun action filled movie. Don't listen to the nay sayers or the critics. No it doesn't follow the story of your mom and dads king Arthur and that's ok. They are trying something new. I really enjoyed the different take on the story. And would go see it again. Hope they make a sequel
Not Oscar material...but entertaining and fun to watch....if you don't over analyze this and just sit back and enjoy you will like it.!!!!!
No, No No ... How do you tell the Legend of the Sword / King Arthur without the entire cast of characters? Merlin is mere mention, Mogana is nowhere to be seen. No Lancelot, no Guinevere (sequels maybe - God save us). The montage style of storytelling is confusing. It worked in other Guy Ritchie films but not here. 3D effects were weak. Story telling was incomplete. Horribly disappointed.
Well ... Ummm... It was entertaining... in a weird artistic license sort of way. Pretty much a carbon copy of Guy Ritchie's last 7 or 8 movies. It was hard to follow, repetitious and the mash up of Asian fight movie, Lord of Rings, Snatch and Excalibur simply did not work or make any sense. If you eliminate the attempt to re-tell the King Arthur story you have some acceptable entertainment. Re-booting this tale in this manner does not work.
I am a complete movie fan from serious to mindless entertainment, and this movie is the worst I've seen in 15 years. Mindless with a poor plot and a bad script, it is a made for tv movie. It rewrites much of the story and characters, the budget should have included better writers. It is the only movie I have seen in 20 years that I wanted my money back. Those 4 and 5 star reviews must have been by the actors.
Confusing and low budget
Absolutely loved this movie, you don't see much period movies anymore. The action was amazing and great acting!
What a load of crap. I am angry I paid to see this movie. The producers and directors of this movie are an insult to the industry.
Enjoyed different approach to the King Arthur legend, great action and cig portrayals.
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
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.
An exciting and creative approach to the King Arthur realm of multi legends. I suggest strongly that anyone considering seeing this movie ignore the negative reviews filed by critics in the news media. King Arthur is simply great film making. The cast performs well in this action packed story of good versus evil. The pace takes the audience on a thrill ride seldom experienced in the multiplex. There are many takes on the great King Arthur legend so enjoy a nice bag of popcorn for this most exciting new addition.
Much better than i thought it was going to be i enjoyed it.
this movie is as different from the legend of King Arthur as west is from east. Abject failure in telling of this legend.
Good story line...a bit dark. It was all pre-Guinevere and that made it really different. Lots of action/adventure. Would see it again!
Too heavy English accents ! Hard to understand ! To much jibber, jabber in first 15 minutes of the movie..hard to understand ! Could of done without the giant elephants ! Last hour was good !
This is absolutely the worst movie I have ever seen. What a waste of money! The plot was terrible, I was unable to follow the dialog, and out in the middle for no reason at all was a one time F-bomb that made no sense at all. Special effects was over the top with no meaning. Fire, smoke black magic.
Enjoyed this. Nothing special but fun to watch which was what I expected.
Boring, crazy. lots of magic special effects, couldn't follow the story line. I would not recommend, it was a time waster.
This was not what I expected, it was silly, lots of black magic, confusing, mumbling actors, hard to follow dialogue. i was looking at my watch, couldn't wait for it to be over. It was disappointing, not a true King Arthur tale. Don't waste your time or money.
Not bad, but not good. Leans more towards not good. I regret spending my money on this one.
loved it,Action non stop
