King Arthur

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
In King Arthur, director Antoine Fuqua never lets us forget that medieval Britain was not the brightly colored, sunlit, pastoral paradise depicted in the movies of Hollywood's Golden Age. His Britain is a gray, muddy, misty place in which armor-laden warriors trudge wearily and filthy peasants scrounge for sustenance. Consequently, his King Arthur Clive Owen is a rather dour fellow, and his fabled Knights of the Round Table are a ...

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
In King Arthur, director Antoine Fuqua never lets us forget that medieval Britain was not the brightly colored, sunlit, pastoral paradise depicted in the movies of Hollywood's Golden Age. His Britain is a gray, muddy, misty place in which armor-laden warriors trudge wearily and filthy peasants scrounge for sustenance. Consequently, his King Arthur Clive Owen is a rather dour fellow, and his fabled Knights of the Round Table are a relatively motley band of questionable characters. They attain heroic stature only in contrast to their adversaries, barbaric Saxons led by Cerdic Stellan Skarsgård, a fearsome brute determined to lay waste to the countryside -- which, at first glance, hasn't much to offer. Now, we can believe that the real Guinevere Keira Knightley wasn't a doe-eyed maiden dressed in impeccable finery, but Fuqua makes her out to be Merrie Olde England's equivalent ofXena: Warrior Princess, provocatively clad in a midriff-baring, animal-skin ensemble and shooting arrows with a speed and accuracy that would've made Robin Hood blush. The legendary love triangle involving her, Arthur, and Lancelot Ioan Gruffudd is barely a suggestion in this version; indeed, Guinevere doesn't even appear until the movie is almost half over. The battle scenes are staged with scope and vigor, with the fury of battle suggested more than shown, although this may be a consequence of the movie's PG-13 rating, which indicates that the most graphic bloodletting was deleted in the cutting room. In fact, battle scenes in the Extended Unrated Version of the film are at once bloodier and more coherent. All in all, King Arthur reflects a great deal of care, and most viewers will find it a rousing return to Camelot, even if it’s not your father’s Camelot.
