Film: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – “You don’t want all of him to survive, that’s the point.”

Certain myths seem to excite Hollywood enough that every few years there is another version of it, one of these is King Arthur where there have been countless versions and yet in 2017 apparently we needed another one

The main things I recall hearing about when it came out were a core plotline with prostitutes and David Beckham’s cameo

As it looked like a generic vaguely-historic action film I felt that it had to be watchable and couldn’t be that bad; I was wrong, it’s basically a rejected script for Robin Hood which someone tried to jazz-up by adding some magic

The acting was iffy however the dialogue was so awful that I felt sorry for the actors. The overall script felt like a bunch of set-pieces thrown together with no real sense of continuity or big picture and by far the most interesting part of the film was where Arthur was battling through the Darklands and yet this was rushed through in a four minute montage

For the amount of money  that was spent on this film it should have been far more fun than it ended-up being, even 90 minutes of the Darklands with 30 minute of defeating  the bad uncle would have worked better
