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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, May 12, 2017

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." – Nico Lang,, May 12, 2017

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. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Jun 27, 2017

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. – David Sims, The Atlantic, Jun 16, 2017

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!


The critics are dumb. This movie was entertaining and I loved it.

Ignore the haters

Review: Ignore the haters. It has anachronisms. It has stylized fights that don't seem to fit the tone of the movie. It has weird killings of young women to make the villain stronger. It has David Beckham in an unnessary cameo. However, It is perfect summer fluff action. I laughed. I shrieked. I admired the casting of Eric Bana as Uther (perfect). I cheered with the good guys and was left wanting to see more. Isn't that good enough for a movie to do, especially one that isn't supposed to be taken all that seriously to start with?
