King Arthur



Title: King Arthur
Directed by:
Antoine Fuqua
Written by:
David Franzoni
Year:
2004

The reason why my reviews of things I dislike tend to be shorter, is that I rarely hate things and cannot muster the passion necessary to crusade (you ought to check out Maddox’ site if you want to see someone who can be said the exact opposite, i.e. eloquent when displeased). Since I did not dislike King Arthur enough to truly hate it, this review will thus be relatively brief.

King Arthur is a mishmash of history, legend and pure fiction, stitched together into something that vaguely resembles a coherent story, a fact that is further highlighted by the vain attempt at hiding it under the piles of money the film must have have cost. It is visually pleasing at times (apart from Keira Knightley), but apart from that I cannot see much point in watching a film which consists of at least fifty percent fighting. Violence has its place on the screen, but not for its own sake and not because the director enjoys watching large quantities of people getting killed.

    Jag håller med dig. Men det finns en scen i filmen jag verkligen tycker om. Den scen där de bestämmer sig för att göra det sista uppdraget och en av “riddarnas” fru sjunger, den scenen är grymt vacker.
