This King Arthur movie is not very professional looking and kind of arrogant with a touch of modern-day sort of feel to it.
The only thing that separates it from the modern feel is the costumes and the setting, which by the way, is nearly the only good thing about the film.
Some of the scenes might as well have been taken with my iPhone. They were so horrible.
The screen writer got the concept right though, he based the legendary Arthur from the roman commander Lucius Artorius Castus who is said to have lived in the late 2nd century A.D.
So, as far as that goes, I was thrilled about the movie, but I got lost within the opening scenes.
They are so loose and vague, lifeless.
Then, when I thought it could not get any worse, along comes Guinevere.
I don't know what the director was thinking, I really don't, but the character and the portrayal are yet the worst part of the movie.
She's portrayed as a really bad and awkward cheap imitation of a male warrior. Don't get me wrong, I like Keira Knightley but her character is very bad.
The only thing about this movie worth looking at is the MUSIC.
Written and composed by Hans Zimmer. As always, his music takes on a life of its own, listen to the Soundtrack here.
The very existence of Arthur is still being desputed to this day. But, what traditionally is believed to have been the core of the story is inaccurately portrayed in every respect.
Although I did not notice any nude scenes, there are plenty arousing ones.
Keep your children away from this film!
This movie is a complete waste of time in every respect.
Movie was filmed in beautiful Ireland, if you happen to watch it you'll enjoy the scenery.
