If you are looking for a sleeping aid this movie will do the trick - Challenging to understand any plot if one even exists -

differs from the legends and myths but a good original take. You see the young man become a king instead of the boy.

Did not realize that this story was directed at ignorant children who love DC Comic productions. Not recommended.

I really loved this movie. It was nice to see a different origin story for the King Arthur legend, and it was really nice to see the sword have an actual purpose. It was powerful in its own right, and it was nice to see it in action!

If you have any respect for the Legend of King Arthur, don't even consider watching this.

Terrible movie, give it a pass.

I loved this movie!! Total entertainment!! The Music and fast pace of the movie sets it apart from anything I've seen. The movie critics didn't seem to like it but they rarely like anything that's actually fun to watch.

This movie went on little to long for me. Fell sleep on it a couple of times. The action scene with sword were pretty good though.

I just wanted to add my voice to those who thought this movie was extremely bad.

The acting itself wasn't as bad as the movie. The writing, directing and the ridiculous use of CGI and resulting 'special effects" made this film bad. being creative is one thing, but it has to be properly channeled into something that will entertain us, otherwise why would you make it and then release it to us the consuming public?

For anyone reading my assessment before they place a hold on this movie, I strongly encourage to spend your 2 hours on something else. You won't be adequately compensated for the lost time.

First this movie has Charlie Hunnam without a shirt, check out that back. I never watched SoA but I did see him Nicholas Nickleby which I enjoyed. Also I like the fast paced dialogue of Guy Ritchie so I enjoyed this film. A different version of the story with decent fight scenes and likable characters. I've watched it a couple of times and get a good laugh when he meets the knights and then introduces them to his crew.

I wanted to like this movie. I really did. Part of me does, admittedly. However, despite the production values and spectacle, I can't help but think that it's a bit too tiresome for its own good, and it's even a bit boring. Maybe instead of planning a whole franchise, they could have focused on the story and making the movie as good as it should have been.

If you're looking for a traditional Excalibur-type telling of this story this movie is not for you. If you're looking for a good modern action-adventure, give it a try. Definitely a fun ride.

Just for the record, though I agree with appreciations of a good movie in general, it does tend to further distract from the actual basis and purpose of the Grail legend, which is the actual basis of the Arthurian legends. Which basis of the Grail legends began long before time that Arthur would have lived, if we could pin down for sure IF he lived. So... where's the magic in That? Hint: The SYMBOLISM, not to mention *actual* history of "the Church" is what the whole thing has always been about, albeit recognized as such by very few. WAITTTTT! Who Cares!?! This is about MOVIES! AND (again) where's the magic in that? Well, you either want to know or you don't. And if you do, you won't get it in one frame of a smart phone. Oh, Hey- isn't that (the delving into deeper mysteries) one of the key themes of the grail legends, however Arthur gets Excalibur in or out of that rock? Hmmm, yes, professor, bla, bla, bla... By the way, notice they didn't have a grail in this version - too touchy a theme after the books by Dan Brown, not to mention, "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" (by Baigent, Leigh, & Lincoln) ? Ok, there's another hint AND I'll stop here ;-)

I really enjoyed all of the film, special effects, sword work, costume and the story was an interesting take on King Arthur

We got at least the $2 that I owe in late fees' worth of entertainment!

This a wild ride with a new fresh perspective on King Arthur using modern film making techniques and screen play. Sure there will be those disappointed in some aspects of the story line or acting but for pure entertainment its movie magic.

Imagine King Arthur plus heavy rock music plus a lot of special effects, and minus a lot of the tenets of the "classic" Arthurian legends, then you've got this movie. Even so, I was pleasantly surprised by the action and the acting.

Not bad, a really unique way to direct the film, I has a less expectation before watching this film due to the critics, but it does really surprises me when I watch it. the part where it can improve more is the length of the back story and more action. it took a little bit too long of explaining King Arthur's past. After this, I am curious and want to watch the 2004 movie with Clive Owen and Keira Knighty

A LE MORTE D'ARTHUR prequel by Guy Ritchie starring Jax (Charlie Hunnam) from SONS OF ANARCHY as the boy king who pulls the sword from the stone. This is LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS version of Camelot. At first I didn't think it was going to work -- and I'm a Guy Ritchie fan -- but succeed it does. Jude Law as the evil uncle Vortigern building his own Tower of Babel is the pillar of the production. He provides a fascinating portrait of a power-hungry ruler, paranoid and ruthless, forever on the lookout for ways to augment his stature. What many of the commentators miss is that Ritchie, in our post-BREXIT world, is calling for a renewed English nationalism, and it is clearly not of the Tory/UKIP variety; rather, it is multi-ethnic (kung-fu fighters and Africans hoisting a mug with Vikings), egalitarian and populist. I agree. If Western democracy is to be renewed our best chance is a governing Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn.

Nothing like what was presented to you in the trailer. The best part of this disaster was looking at Eric Bana but is a serious waste of his talent. The same should be said for Jude Law.
They couldn't decide where to go with this movie. Would have been better off just making a modern, medieval movie rather than trying to drag a King Arthur theme into it. Too much cheesy CGE and not one Led Zepplin song. Possibly a younger crowd who doesn't know any history may enjoy this movie. Dismal disappointment.

For the 'Guy Ritchie' style, it is a well done film. However, If you're an arthurian legend enthusiast, this is not the film for you. Right from the beginning I couldn't get passed the made-up war with mages vs. english citizens. Mordred is made out to be nothing more than a Lord of the Rings Witch King. Different bits and pieces of the legend are miss matched together and don't really hold the integrity of any of the original story lines. Nothing is even very historically accurate for the time period. What we know as vikings weren't present in England at the time, it was mostly Saxons. It all just seemed like an excuse to over exaggerate the fantasy battle scenes. I love sci-fi/fantasy action films just as much as the next person. I think if Ritchie wanted to put his spin on a medieval setting he would have been better off inventing his own story line instead of trying to take on the beloved tales of King Arthur.

Very poor. I enjoyed many of Guy Ritchie's other films like Lock, Stock,...., Snatch, and the Sherlock Holmes films but he seemed to be lazy here and used the same kind of dialogue that would have worked in Lock, Stock. A huge budget and he couldn't be bothered to work on the dialogue!! Don't bother with this one.

I personally loved this take of the King Arthur story. It's uniqueness was very entertaining. I've always been a fan of Guy Ritchie films and as this is one of his first true fantasy films, I'd say he nailed it. There were just a few things I didn't like about it, but it was mostly during some of the fighting scenes. If you're looking for the original King Arthur story, look elsewhere. Guy's take of the story goes in a complete different direction, and if you can ignore the original story, then you'll love this. The dialogue was witty and hilarious. Sometimes the transitioning scenes seemed a bit busy, but nothing I'm not used to with his films. Overall very entertaining and a bit risky.

One WILD ride! Hail Guy Ritchie, VICTORIOUS!
