A great film for a pre-teenage boy with an active imagination, but passable entertainment for everyone else
23 February 2019 | by sbweightmanSee all my reviews

The classic King Arthur story has a modern take with a good number of comical and clever moments, but also a few moments that will make you cringe, and overall, it does go on for too long. The acting quality varies significantly between the small cast of characters, but the special effects are good and the morals it promotes are sensible.
