Entertaining, but ultimately forgettable.

The interminable battle scenes are limply choreographed and unexciting. This is one king that's best left alone.

Fuqua creates a very grim and stylish mood that fits what the concept is attempting to accomplish very well.

Guinevere, no dainty princess she, is a kind of hardened medieval feminist, and the aggressor to Arthur's bashful but equally driven warrior, in both bed and on the battlefield.

In many ways this movie tells us far more about the values and age in which we are living, than the one it pretends to be returning us to.

A brash departure from the legend that retains the round table, but that's about it. Still, the contemporary echoes make the Dark Ages relevant again and the movie, while longwinded in parts, overcomes its shortcomings.

It nods in the direction of tons of potentially interesting developments of plot, theme and character, but doesn't bother to follow through on any of them enough to pay off.

...remains an instantly forgettable, wannabe epic.

Underrated, revisionist version of the Camelot legend; one of the year's 10 best

In seeking to demythify the Arthur legends, the filmmakers wind up creating a new mythology, one that is probably just as fanciful as those it attempts to replace.

A Guinevere, and an Arthur myth, for our times, if not for the ages.

Existential action yarn with solid performances and interesting characters.

Misguided, miscast, and completely misconceived, the wretched King Arthur is one of the grittier, more earnest failures to appear this summer.

Where "King Arthur" falls flat is in its laborious battle sequences.

Bruckheimer's King Arthur is little more than spectacle, and not very interesting spectacle at that.

History buffs will love this film for the fact that it's giving the controversial new take on the King Arthur legend. But your average moviegoer might find this a bit dull.

Película de buena manufactura gracias a su producción, al rostro de Keira Knightley y al carisma de los actores, no obstante, no tiene nada que ver con la leyenda original.

| Original Score: 3.5/5

There's enough action in King Arthur to take the thrill-addicted moviegoers of summer to a new high.
