When Guy Ritchie’s, King Arthur first hit the cinemas, let's face it, it didn’t open to the most positive of reviews. However, other critics and cinemagoers started to emerge telling us it was a hugely enjoyable action epic. Such a mixed response proves the point; you've got to make your own mind up for yourself.
I think the first thing we have to realise is that this is not an accurate retelling of the King Arthurstory: This is a Guy Ritchie movie through-and-through. Ritchie adds his personal touch, just like he did with Sherlock Holmes.
For those of you who are uncertain who Guy Ritchie is: He directed Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, The Man From Uncle (remake), Sherlock 1+2 (he is now attached to a live-action version of Aladdin for Disney..with Will Smith in talks to play, Genie).
It doesn't matter what movie you’re watching. It could be Sherlock or the tongue-in-cheek dialogue of Snatch or Lock Stock. One thing is for sure if Guy Ritchie makes a film, it carries his stamp.
Rather than tell the whole classic Arthurian story, Ritchie decided on a different approach. His King Arthur has all his qualities from Snatch, only it's applied to a story we all know and love.Some may enjoy it more than others, but if you know what to expect, i.e. his editing style, or funny dialogue, then you’ll find King Arthur: The Legend Of The Sword highly entertaining.
