About the Movie
Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne. When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Director Guy Ritchie can turn London crime dramas into cinematic lightning, but apply his fast cuts and jagged pacing to the Arthurian legend and you get, well, a brutal, bleedin' mess.
Rotten: To that hallowed list of great expensive follies - "John Carter," "Ishtar," "Heaven's Gate" - let us ceremonially add another name: "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword."
Rotten: If the sprawling, ugly, largely incomprehensible mess of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is anything to go by, Guy Ritchie has now consolidated his status as the worst "A List" director working today.
Rotten: That's one thing that Ritchie's Legend in the Sword shared with Excalibur-a vague idea that Britain is destined for transformation. In Legend of the Sword, unfortunately, that transformation is little more than a teaser.
I have been waiting to watch this movie for so long since it keeps delaying for silver screen each time because of minor issues after months. Now need to wait for iTunes to bring it to us soon.
I heard iTunes gonna prepare new rental system of movies which are opening. even it sounds good to rent new movies just after 2 weeks.
OMG! Can't wait to watch again!
The action was fantastic! The acting even greater! A great story line on a classic tale done many times. I can only hope they do a sequel with tales of the round table and King Arthur's Court!
