Movie Pass: “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword”


There’s the heroic King Arthur of ancient legend, the romantic King Arthur of Chretien de Troyes, Malory, Tennyson and the pre-Raphaelites, and the mid-20th century pop culture King Arthur of The Once and Future King, Camelot and The Sword and the Stone. And now there’s Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur, who is — what else? — a low-class tough in ancient Londinium who, Excalibur in hand and muscled miscreants at his side, battles his way back to his birthright as royal leader. Heavily indebted to Game of Thrones in its R-rated approach to fantastical doings and impressively mounted as such, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword — a thunderous, bloody and bludgeoning spectacle — could well be the Arthur today’s world audience wants.
