King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

They say this movie didn’t do very well in theaters. But when my dad and I watched this, this turned out to be excellent.

Charlie Hunnam, Eric Bana, Jude Law, Aidan Gillen, Craig McGinlay, and Freddie Fox, became the Knights of the Round Table, including the new King Arthur since Nigel Terry died years ago. In medieval England, King Uther Pendragon was betrayed by Vortigern, who took his place on taking the throne of Camelot. He did it, by selling his soul to the devil. But his son Arthur survived.

And with a resistance, who once worked for Uther Pendragon, they made some conflicts with Arthur to fight against Vortigern. Especially at Camelot, when you should’ve seen how Arthur was using Excalibur. He was fighting very fast and very hard, rather than that video game of “World of Warcraft”.

He did finally killed Vortigern at the climax. But when you look at this, f*** every single movie version of King Arthur. Fairy tales too such as some from the Brothers Grimm. This is way intense than ever. However, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “Excalibur” are still very excellent. So is “King Arthur” in 2004, and “First Knight” with Richard Gere.

Also, for the way Vortigern sold his soul to the devil, it was almost similar to how Sofia Boutella as that mummified woman did, in the 2017 movie version of “The Mummy” with Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. And like how he took things too far, so did she by the time she was shot by sleeping darts and was mummified alive.

So for a successful King Arthur movie, 7 and a 1/2 out of 10 stars. Really good.
