Warner Bros.’ ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is Exhilarating

Guy Ritchie (“Sherlock Holmes”) directs the Warner Bros. Pictures’ presentation of “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” an exhilarating version of the English tale. Ritchie comes from a comedy background as a director of films and it is so evident in this medieval story of King Arthur, which arrives in theaters May 12, 2017. Co-produced and co-written by Guy Ritchie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is about the legendary blade that has mystical powers, seen through the eyes of an orphan boy named Arthur.

It seems Arthur was born to be King, but he doesn’t know it. His evil uncle Vortigem, played by English actor Jude Law (“Sherlock Homes”), is killing all family members in the way of him getting to the thorn of England. English actor Charlie Haunnam (“Sons of Anarchy”) is Arthur Pendragon the young Englishman who was raised in a brothel as an orphaned boy until adulthood. Arthur gets wrapped up in his Uncle King Vortigem’s devious search for the man who can remove the Excalibur from the stone just so he can eliminate him as a royal bloodline threat to the crown.

Arthur, just out to make some money that any man who participates in trying to pull free the sword received, removes the sword and now his Uncle knows who he truly is. When Arthur is able to handle the power of the sword he can see also who he is and what happened to his parents. What transpires next is an adventure that is full of fantasy, drama and perfect comedic relief moments.
