| The reviews does this movie no justice. it doesn't have to be the old story with no creativity.
I believe this movie would have been a master piece of a series due to the huge amount of event packed into 2 hours, but this is no criticism on how great the movie is and how the numbers of this site doesn't do it justice. 90% of the negative reviews comes under the lame excuse of "that's not how king Arthur is supposed to be". If you actually want a movie where you know everything already starting from the story, characters and twists then I'd call you the stupidest ever. Yes this isn't your typical king Arthur movie, and that adds even more to the awesomeness of it.amnt saying the movie is flawless, no movie is, but it was great starting from acting, animation, story, music tracks, everything. Again would have been better off it was a series and I hope there would be a sequel including the knights of the round table, sure Lancelot and some dramatic betrayal or even Arthur's betrayal himself to the kingdom.

Did You Know?


The opening of the film features a sequence in which King Uther rides out to personally repel the invading army. The musical score for this sequence is actually a piece of music composed by Gareth Williams from 2009. It was created for 'The Life', a live-action advertisement for the video game Halo 3: ODST (2009). Daniel Pemberton (lead composer of this film) confirmed that director Guy Ritchie always intended to use this piece of music in Uther's opening sequence, as Ritchie is a self-professed gamer and Halo fan and had always wanted to use that piece of music in one of his films. Thus, Ritchie and Warner Bros. licensed the music (itself called 'The Life') from Microsoft for use in this film and inclusion on the film's soundtrack (in the track titled "The Politics and The Life"). Interestingly, despite years of interest from Halo fans, the release of the soundtrack for this film marks the first time that Williams' piece of music has been made available for purchase or download in any form.


The Mage: You're no longer a myth. You're starting to mean something.


The lighting throughout the film is wrong.

The scenes by candlelight are too bright and contain too little flickering. The daytime scenes inside of building are too bright considering the limited number of windows and their small sizes.
