När kungen mördas tar hans bror Vortigern över kronan. Kungasonen Arthur hålls gömd och lever ett hårt liv i stadens gränder, ovetande om sin kungliga härkomst. Men när han drar kungasvärdet ur stenen ändras både hans eget öde och hela rikets framtid.
King Arthur Dreamfilm Review by Mike:
Wow what a terrible film! The CGI looked like something from play station 2. The story line was all over the place. It’s a kind of ”Snatch” set in Medieval England. I found myself wishing that Eric Bana played Arthur but instead he was in it for only 5 minutes. There was no sign of Sir Gallahad or Merlin but it turns out this was because it is being set up for a sequel. Which if you were a fan of Guy Ritchies other film ”Rock’n’Rolla” you know that this is never going to happen. He likes to set up a film up for a sequel but will only make it if the first film does well at the box office, and since Arthur was a bomb then this is unlikely. But why not do what most good directors do and make a great stand alone film and if it works then think about the sequel later? Then you don’t look foolish if it doesn’t come off.
