I genuinely liked that film. The Guy Ritchie, modern day heist, wobbly camera, fast talking bits, were actually my least favorite bit. But the various fantasy elements, and the way it becomes more classically framed as he begins to embrace his destiny, I thought those were perfectly fine. Arthurian legends are fucking weird, and the mystical beliefs of the time period, and region at that time, are also fucking weird, so it didn't really feel all that strange to me. I felt it was a solid 3/5. Perfectly serviceable film, that I enjoyed watching.I read it is better than John Wick. Bold statement. I will see it!
Never seen it before but on HBO Max is King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by Guy Ritchie. Love his work. I recall it is a failure but I anticipate his failure will be more interesting than most people's successes.
2/5. Very meh. A wasted opportunity. Great performances, high production values. But very pedestrian. Doesn't hold a candle to movies like "Excalibur".
