Trivia

Idris Elba was reportedly strongly considered for the role of Merlin in the film, but it turned out to be just a rumor as Elba commented on the matter, stating, "Unfortunately, I'm not in the 'King Arthur' movies. That was a rumor. That wasn't true, unfortunately. But I wish the guys a lot of success." See more »

The reviews does this movie no justice. it doesn't have to be the old story with no creativity.
12 May 2017 | by (Cairo) – See all my reviews

I believe this movie would have been a master piece of a series due to the huge amount of event packed into 2 hours, but this is no criticism on how great the movie is and how the numbers of this site doesn't do it justice. 90% of the negative reviews comes under the lame excuse of "that's not how king Arthur is supposed to be". If you actually want a movie where you know everything already starting from the story, characters and twists then I'd call you the stupidest ever. Yes this isn't your typical king Arthur movie, and that adds even more to the awesomeness of it.amnt saying the movie is flawless, no movie is, but it was great starting from acting, animation, story, music tracks, everything. If you really hate creativity so much and want to just watch a story you already know with some better editing then you're really stupid. Again would have been better off it was a series and I hope there would be a sequel including the knights of the round table, sure Lancelot and some dramatic betrayal or even Arthur's betrayal himself to the kingdom.
