Based on the directors cut version of the film. This sadly stands as a poor adaption of the fable. Poor editing and bizarre director decisions, the film can't decide if it's a popcorn version or a gritty wild bunch film. I think they should've stuck to a gritty version as you can see they struggled with the overall tone. There are way too many corny lines or actions by the characters, it just becomes a huge mess by the end. This will go down as a mixed and forgotten King Arthur film.
I dont really understand where all the bad ratings for this come from I lived and breathed every minute of this film I wanted to be there with them the battles are very brutal I will be honest the casting for all the knights is what makes the film so enthralling the acting of those guys especially Tristan was fantastic and yes there are better films out there but you wont find acting as good as these knights on many film sets and topped off with a beautiful soundtrack very good film
Wasn't a huge fan the first time I saw it. I gave it another chance later and I cannot believe I did not like it the first time. Great action flick about Authur if nothing else. I liked the story. Different from typical King Authur stories.
