KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD MOVIE REVIEW
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is directed by Guy Richie and stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, and Eric Bana. The plot of the movie is robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. Once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy whether he likes it or not. I saw this movie late, so I have seen all the reviews talking about how bad this was. I did still want to see it because I am a fan of the King Arthur legend. This movie is a fucking disaster. This movie is edited by a crackhead. The movie starts and you are just thrust into some kind of battle with elephants the size of a Sears Tower with wrecking balls. I don't know who is fighting what or why and already I can tell this is going to be hard to sit through. So five minutes into this nightmare of a battle scene credits start playing and they can't even do that right because in the middle of the names it has a location credit. So either this is the location or there is some artsy actor named Londinium. It often feels like there is something missing in the film, for example, a character will dive off of a cliff and then suddenly they are on horseback. So I was confused half the time I really do think that shit is missing. Every one of the actors looks bored and none of the characters are interesting so it is really hard not to fall asleep. The pacing of the movie is awful it is a 2-hour movie it feels like 4. The visual effects look terrible it looks like a really bad video game. The movie is just one big mess don't see it ever. This could very easily end up being my least favorite movie of the year. 0 out of 5 stars for King Arthur: Legend of the sword. I hope you enjoyed my review.
