King Arthur’s strength lies in its production design. As far as any classical and period film is concern, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is one those memorable movies with impressive and very consistent set design that is truly one of Hollywood’s finest. I really like the visual editing and the set-up of the whole area. Cinematography and sound engineering is good. CGI effects are well-executed too. Aside from that, action sequences were greatly translated into the film. Camera angels were creative most of the time too. The variety of characters in the film were also a thing to watch out for. The cast is generally good on their portrayals. What I like also about the movie is its light attack and mixture of comedy. Its a modern twist of a classic piece. Its also a fast-paced movie with lots of exciting moments and some dull moments too.


If you don’t have any idea and background about King Arthur, probably you’ll end up confused and bored in the film. Honestly, I cannot remember his story and upon seeing this film, I am a bit lost. That’s the major problem of this film – even those non-fans will find it hard to blend it with very classical origins that should have been better with even story-telling and a bit of slowing down in terms of sequences. Too much is happening and there is no room for audience to digest its messy and confusing plot. I had some issues with consistency as well. In telling a classic piece, it must be uniform from set until the conversations. The conversations were too lame for the period they are trying to live in. I mean, it should have reflected the way people act and speak during those times but for me, I see a bunch of characters in a 2017 movie kind of feels. Overall, its still a fun flick to watch.
