A stylish retelling of the legendary sword. I liked how it explored different techniques and there's a variety of execution styles. Jude Law stood out.

The whole, "let's make this dark and gritty for no reason" reboot of classic stories isn't working. Guy Ritchie is all flash, no substance here. Arthurian legend is thrown out the window, instead with have Go-Pro street chases, no chemistry (I'm sorry, but Astrid Bergès-Frisbey was a poor choice all around) and actors that, frankly, look a bit bored. This was supposed to be the launch for a franchise, instead it's a reminder of how things can go terribly wrong.

As strange and confusing as the editing is, this is actually a rather generic and dull fantasy movie. It's an uneven mashup of Excalibur, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and A Knight's Tale. Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law seem bored and the cast of mostly television actors is not interesting. The action is poorly done and the visuals are just downright ugly. It doesn't help that the movie is too grim and violent for the audience to get any enjoyment out of it. At least "Gods of Egypt" looked like a fun movie to make and it looked bright and colorful.

"How'd you get money from a Viking? I feel a joke coming on here."
Ever seen me excited before? Then you should have been there, when I was watching this movie. Perhaps because it's a movie that's being razed to the ground by the most appreciated film critics. How do they actually evaluate a movie? Do they use a minutely compiled questionnaire with a precise step-by-step plan to evaluate a movie? Armed with a decibel meter, lux meter and a comprehensive Wikipedia reference about the subject, so technical and substantive negligence can be spotted right away? I know, I know. Smart readers will of course immediately ask me the following obvious question: "Say wiseguy. What's the base of your judgement of a movie?". To be honest, I don't know. Is it a gut feeling? Or temporary insanity? …
