The story was quite good and the soundtrack was great, but all in all the movie was a failure.

Boring action retelling of King Arthur's adventures. Skip it.

I have always been kind of a fantasy nerd, and I especially love the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. This movie version is one of my favourites. Clive Owen is excellent as the epic ruler King Arthur, Keira Knightly is spellbinding as the beautiful Lady Guinevere, and Ioan Gruffudd gives one of the most talented and unappreciated supporting performances I have ever seen as Sir Lancelot. However, Sir Galahad, my favourite Knight of the Round Table (again, I'm a huge fantasy nerd) should have been used quite a bit more since he's one of the most important knights, second only to Lancelot and Arthur himself. A truly remarkable film.

Der Film ist dunkler als andere Arthur Verfilmungen. Es gibt einen Runden Tisch, aber die Ritter finden kaum Platz, darum zu sitzen. Jeder einzelne spricht gepflegt Englisch, sogar die Ritter aus Sarmatien. Und wo bitte liegt "Woad", das Königreich Arthurs? Jetzt müssen wir auch unser historisches Wissen erweitern, denn Arthur hat mit wenigen Männern einen Kampf gegen hunderte oder gar tausende Sachsen an einem gefrorenen See gewonnen …

Ha ha! Once again Hollywood presents it's interpretation of "history", and once again, it's about as convincing as the manifesto of the flat earth society. Every cinematic cliche from the stories of Robin Hood and Arthurian legend is mixed with Braveheart and even Gladiator, and presented as "fact", which is easily the film's biggest flaw. Every time the name Arthur or Lancelot is mentioned, it only serves to remind how absurd it all is. But expecting the worst, I watched this with my least cynical head on (luckily, otherwise I would never have made it past the first half hour)and actually rather enjoyed it. When it finally gets down to the serious business of everyone hacking each other into Mcnuggets, things definitely improve. The battle sequences are superb, both thrilling and …
