    Great Scenes

    For people who want a story of Arthur based on "history" - well, good luck - history is still working that out...all we have are varying theories, and this story follows one of those theories. I loved the uncut version. The scenes were more intense, and my interest was grabbed early on. I liked this movie enough to purchase the DVD - Signed, A medieval history buff who is also a 43 year old emergency room nurse.

    Unique

    Our generation's King Arthur is spliced with the rumor of the infamous love triangle of King Arthur with the beautiful Keira Knightley as Guinivere. The uncut version has bloodier fights that are more coherent and fantastic than the deleted scenes.

    If you like movies set in the past, this is for you!

    Though it is true that this film isn't etirely historic facts-accurate, it is a great film on its own. It delivers the promised action, romance, and drama we would expect from a film of this sort. All in all, it sets a realistic view of the people and conflicts that raged in that time. Often you just see knights on white horses, jewels, and big beautiful castles. But ancient civilization was often brutal and dirty. It might not be the best film you've ever seen, but I guarentee you won't regret seeing it.

    OK... so it's not Camelot.

    From the way the reviews read, real purists apparently did not enjoy this version. But if you take it for what it really is, & not worry about whether or not all the right people are in their right places, it's a good adventure film. I appreciated that it was more true to how the people would really have lived rather than the more sanitized versions we usually get where everybody is dressed in velvet, & nobody ever gets dirty. I liked it enough to add it to my collection.

    Want "Accuracy?"

    This movie is so much better than any other portrayal of the Arthurian Legend that I can't believe people want to denigrate it because of it's faults. Is this movie worse than "Excalibur"? Absolutely not. Might one prefer to remember Arthur as Richard Harris in "Camelot" or even Disney's "Sword and the stone"? Perhaps, but this movie shows a grittier and more realistic side. If You want true authenticity - watch the History Channel. If You desire a semi-realistic take on Arthurian legend - this is the best film there is.

    Interesting interpretation

    Even though the story is not what people would call "historically accurate" I was intruiged by this telling. It does not follow the myth, like movies such as "Excalibur", but it takes a much more logical approach, justifying the tale with more realistic characters and chain of events. I thought it was pretty good overall.

    Powerfull Film

    This DVD explodes on the screen and is an action packed and well photographed film. Battle scenes are somewhat violent but not to the extent that they detract from the story. Interesting and unique plot with fairly good acting. Unlike any 'Knights of the Round Table' film ever made. A visual masterpiece.
