King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) Review

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man From U.N.C.LE.) and stars Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim), Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Spy) and Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond). "Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not". Will King Arthur live up to its legendary title or will this adaptation slay the original tale?

"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" Review

Director Guy Ritchie has a very distinctive style. His movies, including a duo of "Sherlock Holmes" films, "RocknRolla" and most recently "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." (which wasn't a big moneymaker, though a sequel is currently being written), are filled with slow-motion action sequences, extreme close-ups, dialogue scenes that invariably include both flashbacks and flashforwards, and an overall gritty feel.
