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.

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.

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

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

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.
