Despite having many beautiful scenes, the film about the legendary king of England was criticized as a “bomb” due to the lack of highlight content.

With a budget of $175 million, the film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (Legend of King Arthur: The Sword in the Stone) had the first weekend in the US market only $ 14.7 million. Experts say the film will have a dismal revenue.

  • The legend of King Arthur is recreated

Right from the first scene, the audience witnessed the battle between humans and mages, with giant elephant beasts and the power of the sword god Excalibur. The one holding the treasured sword is King Uther (Eric Bana) – Arthur’s biological father (when he was still a child).

After putting down the mages’ rebellion, Uther suddenly faced a coup from his younger brother Vortigern (Jude Law). Before he died, he still managed to let his son out of Vortigern’s reach. Arthur (Charlie Hunnam) is lost to Londonium (forerunner of the city of London, England) and is adopted by prostitutes. He grew up in a brothel and was unaware of his origins.

One day, Arthur suddenly becomes the only person who can pull the sword Excalibur out of the stone, proving that he has a regal origin and is supported by many people. At the same time, Vortigen learns that he is a descendant of Uther and will threaten his throne. A fight between Arthur and his uncle passionate about power quickly unfolds.

Instead of recreating the legendary king’s life close to history like the 2004 version of King Arthur, the director decided to mix fantasy elements into the story. Every time he holds a god sword, Arthur possesses superpowers, allowing him to defeat dozens of people. Meanwhile, the character Vortigern is scripted to become a mage, able to transform into a monster.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword possesses many beautiful techniques. The opening scene of the film reminds many viewers of the battle in Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). The shape of the monsters in the film is carefully built, bringing monstrous colors like a herd of giant elephants, a python and three female magicians in the body of an octopus. The visual effects every time Arthur uses the ability from the sword god are also taken care of, when the whole surrounding large space is transformed.
