King Arthur: Legend of the Sword - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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.

MOVIE REVIEW

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword gives zero fucks. Slick and stylish yet weird and vapid, the latest Guy Ritchie film is at once oddly entertaining and incredibly shallow. It’s a movie that you’ll enjoy only if you give in to the strangeness of it all and relish in Ritchie’s quick-cut storytelling approach. It’s also a movie that, with a little more substance, could have actually been good.
