Is 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' worth seeing?
Here's the synopsis of "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword," per IMDB:
Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
Critics have pretty much panned the film, but some moviegoers are still supporting the Medieval classic adaptation.
Vox's Alissa Wilkinson writes:
Not every movie is a political statement in 2017, but some of them sure are. So it’s altogether fitting that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is a goofy, splendid medieval romp that also makes a distinctly English case for a moderate populism.
Tribune News Service's Kate Walsh's writes:
'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' is unlike any other medieval warfare and sorcery movie ever committed to film, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. This King Arthur superhero origin story is strange, invigorating, often outright bad, confusing, and totally wild.
