I am a big fan of GR and was really excited about this one despite the lack of box office appeal. Unfortunately, sometimes lack of box office appeal translates to a bad movie, which is the case here... Read more. They had a story with wide appeal and ready for a modern day upgrade and they made it into some fantasy metemorphosis thriller that just does not translate well. I think the acting was fine and some of the story, but one never really feels empathy for the antagonist (King Arthur) or any of his hoodlum friends. Watch at your own risk.
The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londinium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he draws the sword Excalibur from the stone. Instantly confronted by the sword's influence, Arthur is forced to decide where to become involved with his power. Throwing in with the Resistance and an enigmatic young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern - who murdered his parents and stole his crown - and become king.
