While the end result does garner a fair amount of entertainment, it also leads the audience through a muddled, almost non-existent plot, visually dark sequences that cause eyestrain, and more disappointment at the underutilization of star Charlie Hunnam.

The legend of Arthur is somewhat swallowed by the monstrosity of Ritchie's spectacle, which is another endless montage of slickly edited action sequences.

With Guy Ritchie co-writing and directing King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword, it feels more like he's trying to pull a rabbit out of a hat.

The invention dies in the idea of recreating a King Arthur with mythological action, when trying to squeeze eight different films in one. [Full Review in Spanish]

Ritchie's movie overflows with challenging new images, sequences, and planning ideas. [Full Review in Spanish]

This reviewer legitimately fell asleep through the entirety of the film's final sword fight but was wide awake for the epilogue that amounts to little more than idle banter about building a round table. Take that as you will.

In this retelling of the familiar legend, Guy Ritchie gets some character names right, and there are swords. Other than that, this is like a candid pic of King Arthur compared with his profile pic.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword seems to jump from high fantasy insanity to gritty reboot and can't find a consistent tone.

Legend of the Sword is still a watchable - albeit ultimately forgettable - adventure that will keep you (somewhat) engaged as you while away a lazy summer evening.

I left thinking isn't the story of King Arthur exciting enough without all this nonsense?

Mostly just a lot of noise and a lot of style over substance, resulting in a whole lot of bored audiences.

An enjoyable take on the legend though Hunnam is at times ill at ease. Law is a terrific Vortigern, wandering his stage or slouching across his throne like Richard III. Ritchie's flourishes don't always work; some of the jokes are endearingly awful.

It makes the 2004 Antoine Fuqua version look like a masterpiece in comparison.

Women speak for less than 4 minutes in a film that runs 2 hours and 6 minutes long.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword often felt like two movies blended together to create an unappetizing, diet shake.

So if they had the giant snake the whole time, why didn't they just use it right away? ...is a question I did not expect to be asking this week.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword starts with elephants the size of castles and ends with snakes the size of rivers and there isn't much sandwiched in between that's any less ridiculous.
November 1, 2018
Legend of the Sword is beset by presenting a version of this familiar myth that's so far removed from its familiar trappings that its very title feels like an unwelcome crown.

For everything that is bold and inventive about King Arthur there's something equally generic for a blockbuster origin story.
October 12, 2018
While this re-envisioning of Camelot should be applauded for trying something new, its desire to crib off so many other iconic aesthetics [makes it more] generic than unique.
