King Arthur: Legend of the Sword full movie review - a creative and nearly perfect interpretation of Arthurian legend

At its most basic, the story of King Arthur boils down to this: He was a fabled king of Britain in the late 5th and early 6th centuries, whose legend has grown and expanded over the millennium and a half since.

Historically, we don't know for sure whether Arthur actually existed, but literarily, not only can his existence not be denied, but it cannot be avoided. Tales of the great king and his court, called Camelot, his wife Guinevere, his right-hand-man Lancelot and the rest of the Knights of the Round Table, his wizard Merlin and Arthur's magical sword Excalibur have been told, retold, changed and embellished over the centuries by books, stage productions and other media, including, of course, television and film. A countless number of TV shows and movies have referenced the legends and many have used "Excalibur", "Camelot" and, of course, "Arthur" in their titles. In 2017, auteur Guy Ritchie gets into the game with the action-adventure-drama "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" (PG-13, 2:06), the first in a series of films reinterpreting the Arthurian legend with Ritchie's signature creative flare for reinvention. In launching a new franchise, Ritchie gives us an origin story which expounds upon the age-old tales, introduces new elements and characters and combines other stories and legends into a cohesive whole.

In this film, as in the legends, Arthur is the son of King Uther (Eric Bana). After heroically fending off an attack on Camelot by the ruthless evil wizard Mordred and his mammoth war elephants (reminiscent of those in the film "300", but bigger), Uther further enhanced his own stellar reputation among his court, his people and everyone? except for his ambitious, but faux loyal brother, Vortigern (Jude Law). Vortigern soon kills Uther and his wife, but Uther's Excalibur is lost in a lake and the king's two-year-old son gets into a boat and floats away. In a twist on the biblical story of the young Moses, Arthur is plucked from the water by a group of women, prostitutes, in this case. They raise Arthur as their own and he is mentored by an Asian man called George (Tom Wu) who teaches Arthur how to fight. Arthur grows up to be a man of honor and a protector to the women who cared for him his whole life, but his past catches up with him, threatening everything and everyone he knows and changing his life forever.

When the waters of that lake recede and expose Excalibur embedded deep in a large stone, Vortigern worries that young Arthur survived his aquatic exile, grew up and may come back to claim his father's throne. Believing that only the rightful heir to the throne can remove the sword from the stone, Vortigern orders that all young men in the kingdom be brought to the castle and made to try doing just that. When Arthur reluctantly takes his turn, of course, he removes the sword ? and the ground actually shakes. Arthur is pretty shaken too ? because he has grown up thinking his mother was a prostitute ? and because the power flowing through the sword is so strong that it knocks him unconscious. When he wakes up (locked up), he tells Vortigern that he has no designs on power, but it would clearly make Vortigern's life easier if Arthur were out of the picture ? permanently. Unfortunately for Vortigern, Arthur gets help from a Mage (a magical human ? played by Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) as well as a rebel named Bedivere (Djimon Hounsou) and his cohorts (including Aidan Gillen, Freddie Fox, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Neil Maskell) and even Vortigern's wife, Maggie (Annabelle Wallis). These characters play a role in helping Arthur learn to harness the power of Excalibur and convince Arthur of his responsibility and his unique ability to save the kingdom from Vortigern's power hungry, abusive and murderous ways.

"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" is one of the best movies from the first half of 2017 ? and one of the best action movies ever. It builds on a well-established and multi-faceted legend and incorporates elements of other movie franchises, but Guy Ritchie's visionary directing makes this cinematic King Arthur tale very special indeed. According to IMDb, the film was pitched to Warner Bros. as a combination of "Lord of the Rings" and "Snatched" (Ritchie's 2000 film), but I see the finished product differently. In addition to those films, I see the influence of TV's "Game of Thrones" and the films "300", "The Ten Commandments", "The Godfather", "Kingsman: The Secret Service" and, of course, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes films. The creative cinematography, editing and visual effects from his earlier movies are more highly developed and more entertaining in this one. Also, the performances are uniformly outstanding, the story is engaging, the dialog is well-written (with some comedic moments and some emotional ones), the action scenes are creative and exciting and the score contributes significantly to the movie's overall quality, with its conjoining of musical styles from today with those from centuries ago. In short, this is a nearly perfect film which will likely entertain Movie Fans of any kingdom. "A+"
