Storyline

Old school magic meets the modern world in this epic adventure. Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he's just another nobody, until he stumbles upon the mythical sword in the stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin (Sir Patrick Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be. Written by https://www.foxmovies.com/movies/the-kid-who-would-be-king

Merlin the useless wizard...
28 January 2019 | by mutantmarineSee all my reviews

From a wizard in the old Disney movie who was powerful and loving, to a wizard whose powers are drained by one spell and basically only knows how to do duplication glitches. This interpretation sucks. It could've been so much better.

Also, get a better storyline please. The book addition was cool but the bullies were so forced and obviously shoved into the story to fill the "enemies turned into allies" quote. Don't waste your time on this movie.
