Arthur

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is a 2017 British/Australian/American fantasy epic film directed by Guy Ritchie and written by Ritchie, Joby Harold and Lionel Wigram. Loosely based on Arthurian legends, the film stars Charlie Hunnam as the title character, with Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law and Eric Bana in supporting roles.


First, Jude Law is mis-cast in this movie. It’s not that he is a bad actor, he just doesn’t fit the role.

Third, It’s dark. Not in content, but colour. Everything is dialed down to a uniform greyness.

Forth, It lacks any emotional involvement. None of the characters are

Fifth, “who is that’. It has actors I had seen, but couldn’t place.
Djimon Hounsou was in Guardians of the Galaxy. Aidan Gillen is from Game of Thrones. And the one I did recognize, Neil Maskell who was in the TV SciFi series Humans.
