Item Details

A reluctant leader, Arthur wishes only to leave Britain and return to the peace and stability of Rome. Before he can, one final mission leads him and his Knights of the Round Table--Lancelot, Galahad, Bors, Tristan, and Gawain--to the conclusion that when Rome is gone, Britain will need a leader to fill the void. Britain needs a king--someone not only to defend against the current threat of invading Saxons, but to lead the isle into the new age. Under the guidance of Merlin, and the beautiful Guinevere by his side, Arthur will have to find the strength to change the course of history.

The characters come from the legends of King Arthur but the story is strictly Hollywood.

I found the plot very predictable and the violence was gruesome with blood splashing all over the place. Would not recommend this movie.

I like the king authors court and everyone in the movie. They need to make more movies like this for all of us to enjoy in the future.

Disappointing. Poor character development; kitschy macho dialogue; overlong; boring. Attempting to make an emaciated teenage Keira Knightley appear menacing with blue warpaint was laughable.

Quite entertaining.

Interesting enough - totally different than what I expected. Doesn't focus on the King Arthur we know, but rather where the legend of King Arthur came from. Especially liked Keira Knightley's interpretation of Guinevere!
