King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)


When I first saw the trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, I was intrigued by what I saw, especially when I knew that this was going to be a Guy Ritchie film. This was not going to be the typical Sword and Fantasy flick. This was going to be good and breath new life into the genre. Well, having just watched, struggling to get through it, I was very disappointed in what the final product turned out to be. Maybe there is a reason why traditional is what it is for a reason. Guy is a solid film maker with his unique style and flair. But it doesn't work in this genre. If you've seen any of his previous films, then you're going to recognize his ticks as a film maker, which then in turns just takes you out of the moving going thread you have with what's happening on screen. It's not only his ticks that were too much of a distraction, the story itself was a complete mess with horrible editing choices where you lose huge chunks of plot just to "move things along". Definitely a Skip. 2 Stars out of 5.

It feels like he should have made Robin Hood and maybe Ridley Scott should have made King Arthur... seems like a better marriage of talent to the material.

I had really zero interest in seeing this flick as it stands, and it's not that I'm not in the mood for a good King Arthur movie, it's just... whatever this was, didn't look interesting.
