This was a terrible movie. I went to see it hoping for a better plot, story, characters and action. There was action, but action without raison d'etre is empty. There were many Paris chase scenes, perhaps emulating Frankenheimer's Ronin. Yet they did not work because the movie is so flawed, that even a good car chase seems meaningless. A character can have a rifle when it is not needed, and not have one when it is. The whole creaky house of cards does not make sense. Do not waste your time
Come on! Despite the stellar performance by Gary Oldman, the movie is not compelling. It is poorly paced and implies that Churchill spent many hours in silence and solitude in darkened rooms. Besides his governmental posts he was a great writer, an accomplished painter, bricklayer and master of many skills. That does not show in the film despite Oldman's remarkable transformation. The film should have been as dynamic as it's subject. At best it is anemic and tepid, destroying the power of Oldman's great work
King Arthur was one of the worse movies I have seen, saw it last night. It hearkens to Ray Harryhausen, which were similar in their eclectic approach to antiquity. I loved Many of Ritchie's other films from Locked and Loaded to Sherlock Holmes and between, but this one is a swamp. The trope of King Arthur is a beautiful and exacting story, One can depart only so much, and Ritchie shakes it up in a disorganized and incoherent way. The giant elephants in the beginning, and then giant serpents later. Excaliber has super powers, then it doesn't. His father is killed with by his brother in the guise of a monster. I could not figure it out. Instead of Merlin is a beautiful young mage. I think Merlin is symbolized by an Eagle but who knows? All the girls were impossibly cute. I loved the crazy realism and verisimilitude of his other pictures. This one I wanted to walk out of. I am afraid to see another Ritchie film now. I would not recommend
