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

makes a more valiant attempt than most, delivering a worthwhile action-drama that is just grounded enough in real history to be intriguing.

Attaches itself to the Arthurian legend like some parasitic worm

King Arthur may be a more truthful retelling of the legend, but it's certainly a lot less fun.

A brave and admirable little endeavor here that creates a whole lot of grand chaos in just a little over two hours.

Franzoni's script mixes myth, fact and Hollywood hackwork. Whatever the character's "true identity," Owen's Arthur is one dull blade.
July 21, 2004
Offers top-flight entertainment for about half its length before slipping into complete formula.

Ambiguity, subtlety, and mixed-up heroes are not usually the makings of summer blockbusters, but it's still a fascinating, stirring, great-looking film.

A dim, cruddy collage of Dark Ages, sub-Conan the Barbarian mush. Talk about trashing an awesome bedtime story -- there aren't even any 'Knights who say nee!'
July 20, 2004
Seeking realism, director Antoine Fuqua conforms the Arthur legend. He makes it boring.

Whoever designed Knightly's "armor" has to be given a pat on the back by all of us who find her an object of sauciness and desire.

This Arthurian tale is more interested in the historical setting than the personalities within it.

The lamest blockbuster in some time.

A title card says this King Arthur, grimly directed by Antoine Fuqua, is based on the latest research into the mythic past. Maybe so. But one can't help thinking the research that really counted was that into the more recent box-office charts.

Gladiator lite.

Turns the Arthurian folks into one-liner spouting generic-buddy-picture characters with dubious hygiene, whose fates aren't likely to matter a damn bit to you.

After a while, [the film] leaves nothing to register but entwined limbs and falling ash.
