Summer action fare with just enough intelligence to put it above the mindless action films that usually litter multiplexes this time of year.

Clive Owen is a very dour plonker of an Arthur and has zero chemistry with Keira Knightley.

The track record for film adaptations of the Arthur mythos is pretty shaky, but [this is still] the worst of them all.

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.
August 26, 2006
...remains an instantly forgettable, wannabe epic.

Maybe I'm too close to the material, maybe I wanted more from Bruckheimer and Fuqua than they could ever be expected to deliver.

Underrated, revisionist version of the Camelot legend; one of the year's 10 best
December 10, 2004
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.
