Excalibur is sloppy writing and horrible acting making a pitiful attempt to squeeze 800 pages of fantastic medieval epic into two and a half hours, which isn't a complete waste of time if you're in the mood for an amusing so-bad-it's-good movie.
A lot more better then first knight movie. Good performance overall ,well spread out play(action , story & more.
Good movie overall. Just a very weird ending.
This was a great movie. I have loved this story since I was a kid. It is sad that we do not have a newer version of this that stands up to this movie. I would rather watch this and the Disney version over anything else that has been made. Great story and great depiction of this story.
This is an incredible King Arthur film and probably the greatest story based on the myth/legend. John Boorman may have struggled with success, but his films have never been boring or lacked substance. I saw one critic called this messy, but I personally believe this stems from the cutting of the 3 hour cut. I caught this on the big-screen last night, and wow. I haven't seen this film since I was a child and it is still amazing and truly one of a kind. Great direction and intensely created film that keeps the story flowing. My favourite scene is the rebirth of Arthur as he rides through the fields and the plants grow again, it's incredible. The film is beyond its era, just a film that is a cult film because it was made well before its time. This is how a film should be made, Guy Ritchie should have followed something with this template or cut the budget down to ensure the gritty and timely nature of the legend. Incredible film and I'm happy to say it is so much better on the big-screen. 11/11/2019
Amazing! A true fantasy classic.
Excalibur is a 1981 fantasy drama directed by John Boorman. The film stars Nigel Terry as King Arthur and Nicol Williamson as Merlin.
An exemplary looking film; that is engaging and incredibly creative.
The characters were compelling, the story was intriguing, and the film was truly unique and unlike anything I've ever seen. The cast may have been very hit or miss, but aside from that I didn't have any other problems with the presentation of the film.
Overall I give it a
8/10 - a beautiful film that I would definitely recommend
the best movie of king arthur
The absolute seminal work on all things King Arthur, Knights of the Round Table, and Search for the holy grail.
Highly stylish, very well produced and violent presentation of the saga is fascinating to watch, although it's an uneven mixture of mythology and realistic staging.
