Only after these services, these knights are free to return home. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table have their last mission before achieving their freedom.
Plot: The story of the Arthurian legend, based on the ‘Sarmatian hypothesis’ which contends that the legend has a historical nucleus in the Sarmatian heavy cavalry troops stationed in Britain, and that the Roman-British military commander, Lucius Artorius Castus is the historical person behind the legend.

Do yourself a favour and grab the **extended **edition of this movie, It’s like a whole new film and it is way way better.
_Final rating:★★★★ – Very strong appeal. A personal favourite._
I’ll never forget the iced-held river scene. At least I’ve watched it ten times.Clive Owen and Keira Knightley are my favorites.
What can one say?
What can I say that most already have not? Well not a lot.
My opinion on the movie is that, like many others have said, it’s nothing like the legend. I went into this movie expecting it to at lease follow some of the story line for what I knew.. But nothing really happened. They touch small bases of the story and sure they say ‘the true story’ but no one knows if it even happened! So no one can really make such a statement. Also if they are trying to make a more ‘realistic’ one then they could of still used the King Arthur story that he actually dies? There is the love affair between Lancelot and Guinevere? King Arthur’s love affair and his son? Really if they had to make 2 or 3 movies to fit it all it, I would be more happy with that than how this one turned out.
I went in knowing the story and didn’t enjoy it as much, but my cousin went in not knowing much more than there was a King Arthur and a sword.. He enjoyed it a lot more.
It’s just another war movie, and I really think it would be a good one! If it didn’t use it as the King Arthur story.
Most King Arthur fans will be disappointed I believe, but none the less.. it’s a good movie if you take away the whole ‘King Arthur’ legend from your mind.
King Arthur (2004) D/C
Arthur, you fight for a world that will never exist.
King Arthur is directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by David Franzoni. It stars Clive Owen, Keira Knightley, Ioan Gruffudd, Mads Mikkelsen, Ray Winstone, Joel Edgerton, Stephen Dillane, Hugh Dancy, Ken Stott, Stellan Skarsgård and Til Schweiger. Music is scored by Hans Zimmer and cinematography by Slawomir Idziak.
The Roman Empire is departing Britannia, and local commander Artorius Castus (Owen), is given one final mission to rescue an important Roman family from the invading Saxon hordes. Calling on the support of his trusty Knights, Arthur leads his men on a mission that will define them all.
Save your prayers boy, your god doesn’t live here.
The flaws of director Antoine Fuqua’s Arthurian epic have been well documented, as has the tinkering of producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the latter of which took his lusty scissors to the original cut of the film and created a rather choppy experience for a film already on rocky waters. Yet in spite of the uneven narrative, the unsound historical spin on the Arthurian legend, and the gross miscasting of Clive Owen in the lead, the film still went on to make roughly $80 million in profit from the worldwide box office. The director’s cut of the film, whilst not altering the strength of the movie in the way that the D/C of Kingdom of Heaven does, has a more comprehensive flow to it, more blood and boldness and yes, it’s more fun.
The Knights are demons. That is the gate of hell!
The film is undeniably epic in scope and production, the lush photography of expansive lands, the set design and costuming (including the wonderfully attired horses in the final battle at Badon Hill), Zimmer’s gladiatorial score and the ensemble of actors gathered. Action quota is high and energised, well choreographed and in the case of the battle of Badon Hill, extended into a good portion of the running time to really crown the story. How nice to see sensible military tactics used, it may not be genius to note Arthur telling his small band of troops to “aim for the wings of their ranks, make them cluster” (this during a brilliant fight against the Saxons on a frozen lake), but there’s a common sense logic here that is often missing in similar big budgeted historical epics.
Most agreeable is the story itself. It focuses on the decline of the Roman Empire, the withdrawal from Britain, the impact of berserker religion at this time, the Saxons and the Woads (Picts/Celts). In the middle of all this world changing anger is Arthur’s inner turmoil, his battle with faith as he leads his loyal knights out of the promised freedom into yet more bloody chaos. The arrival on the scene of Guinevere (Knightley), here as a Woad warrior, in the second half of the picture clouds things still further, the possible love triangle between herself, Arthur and Lancelot is only hinted at, and the story is more intriguing because of it. In fact Fuqua proves most adept at characterisations, even if sadly he can’t get the best performances from some of the big players.
We will go home across the mountains.
With Owen looking the part but too bland in delivery to make this Arthur convince, it needs the other big players to step up to not let the lead performance hurt the piece too much. Yet the best performances are coming from the supporting players like Edgerton, Mikkelsen, Stevenson and Dancy, but like Gruffudd (the one who truly looks and sounds the part), they are all underused. Skarsgård is ace, making Saxon leader Cerdic a fearless, emotionless and formidable foe, and Schweiger as his son Cynric also leaves a telling mark, but these too are also underused. Further viewings of the directors cut do show Knightley’s performance in a better light, Guinevere dominates the narrative in the second half and Knightley is full of guts and lively in her action scenes, but the voice just irritates and someone in production should have picked up on that. Winstone gives a fun turn, certainly it’s not in keeping with the surroundings, mind, as you half expect him to don his West Ham United scarf and start shouting ICF! But it is fun and becomes tolerable the longer the film runs.
It’s a flawed epic for sure, but one that still remains a great piece of historical filmic fun. Often rousing and blood stirring, even emotionally satisfying too. That is if you can forgive it for its failings? 7/10
