Olga and I went to see “King Arthur” today. I was somewhat waiting to see this movie although I didn’t expect anything great about it. The trailer was rather cheap.
The movie was OK. I could feel some budget deficit when it came to massive battle scenes, but other than that it is pretty good. The story is romantic and stuff, exactly how it is supposed to be in the knight movies. Acting was pretty good, although the film is not that deep anyway. It is a nice fairy tale to see with kids, who don’t get sick from the sight of blood.
Knight duels were a little bit boring. Maybe they were realistic, I don’t know. But there was no martial arts or choreography to enjoy. Soundtrack and sound effects were slightly over done. You could hear some really magnificant and meaningful orchestra bits at times when a bunch of guys were driving their horses from point A to point B. If they would add better fighting and better battles to it, it would be a great flick. As it is, I’d place it slightly above average.
Rating it as 6.5 out of 10. It’s seriously on the way to 7, but not just there.
