On Blu-ray for the first time, John Boorman's Excalibur is a staggering achievement of bloated artifice, dismantling the Arthur Legend one invigorating aesthetic swipe at a time.

Shorn of much of the sentimentality of many Arthurian adaptations -- First Knight, we mean you -- this emphasises the blood, guts and magic of England's greatest ever monarch.
