I really loved this movie. It was nice to see a different origin story for the King Arthur legend, and it was really nice to see the sword have an actual purpose. It was powerful in its own right, and it was nice to see it in action!

If you have any respect for the Legend of King Arthur, don't even consider watching this.

I loved this movie!! Total entertainment!! The Music and fast pace of the movie sets it apart from anything I've seen. The movie critics didn't seem to like it but they rarely like anything that's actually fun to watch.

This movie went on little to long for me. Fell sleep on it a couple of times. The action scene with sword were pretty good though.

I just wanted to add my voice to those who thought this movie was extremely bad.

The acting itself wasn't as bad as the movie. The writing, directing and the ridiculous use of CGI and resulting 'special effects" made this film bad. being creative is one thing, but it has to be properly channeled into something that will entertain us, otherwise why would you make it and then release it to us the consuming public?

For anyone reading my assessment before they place a hold on this movie, I strongly encourage to spend your 2 hours on something else. You won't be adequately compensated for the lost time.

First this movie has Charlie Hunnam without a shirt, check out that back. I never watched SoA but I did see him Nicholas Nickleby which I enjoyed. Also I like the fast paced dialogue of Guy Ritchie so I enjoyed this film. A different version of the story with decent fight scenes and likable characters. I've watched it a couple of times and get a good laugh when he meets the knights and then introduces them to his crew.

I wanted to like this movie. I really did. Part of me does, admittedly. However, despite the production values and spectacle, I can't help but think that it's a bit too tiresome for its own good, and it's even a bit boring. Maybe instead of planning a whole franchise, they could have focused on the story and making the movie as good as it should have been.

Awful

If you're looking for a traditional Excalibur-type telling of this story this movie is not for you. If you're looking for a good modern action-adventure, give it a try. Definitely a fun ride.
