Movie Review-King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is a rock n roll version of Camelot. The movie, directed by Guy Ritchie, is set to a driving beat and, unlike the 1967 movie Camelot, King Arthur is more action than romance. Charlie Hunnam, whose character goes from a common street thug to a king, plays Arthur. Eric Bana plays his father, Uther, who has the crown stolen from him by Vortigern (Jude Law) who betrays the king and takes over the crown for himself. The whole movie is a sword and scorcery adventure that reminded me of the movie 300, only not as bloody.
Arthur goes through a quest to master the power of the sword and once he does he does some serious damge with it while trying to defeat the demons of his past that still haunt him after seeing his father killed by evil forces. The movie doesn't dissapoint with plenty of action and adventure.
While violent, King Arthur is not graphic. It has a PG-13 rating and a run time of two hours and sixteen minutes. Be sure and see it in IMAX to enjoy the movie at it's fullest. It was a fun adventure that I rate a LARGE on my "Hollywood Popcorn Scale".
