PG-13 (for sequences of violence and action, some suggestive content and brief strong language)
Running time:
126 minutes

When the child Arthur's father is murdered, Vortigern, Arthur's uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.

Quick review:
Guy Ritchie attempts a radically modernized and up-tempo version of the classic story, though ultimately he manages to strip the characters of the mythic stature while offering the small consolation of wisecracks and video game visuals. With Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law and Djimon Hounsou.
