Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's got a round table, some knights, and a noble warrior who rises to become King Arthur, but everything else about this revisionist legend is pure Hollywood. That's not such a bad thing if you enjoyed Rob Roy, Braveheart, Gladiator, and Troy, and there's some intriguing potential in presenting the "real" Arthur (played by Clive Owen) as a 5th-century soldier of Rome, assigned to defend Roman-imperial England against a hoard of invading Saxons (led by Stellan Skarsgård in hairy villain mode). As revamped history and "archaeological findings" would have us believe, Guinevere (Keira Knightley) is a warrior babe in face-paint and Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd) is a nonentity who fades into the woodwork. Never mind! Best to enjoy the harsh, gloomy atmosphere of Irish locations, the ruggedness of Owen and his hearty supporting cast, and the entertaining nonsense of a Jerry Bruckheimer production that strips battle-ready Guinevere down to leather-strap S&M gear while all the men sport full-body armor. Hail to the queen, indeed! --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Name of Iran March 15 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video clip illustrated how Rome used religion to justify its position to create Pax Rome. There are Saxon who are coming to fight handful of special elite Roman soldiers. It appears to be this another version of King Arthur story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clive Owen Sizzles as King Arthur Dec 27 2004
Format:DVD
Clive Arthur sizzles as King Arthur. He is a perfect choice to lead Britian to unity. This version is different than the previous versions. The love triangle is almost non-existant between Guninevere, Lancelot and Arthur. I feel not having Guninevere betray Arthur is more romantic and shows the loyality of the knights to each other. It is more realistic of the times that of previous King Arthur movies. It also has Merlin as a leader who appeals to Arthur to lead the people against Saxons to have one king to rule them all. The extended version is better than the one shown in threatres. It shows more battle scenes and a few more scenes between Guninevere and Lancelot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un-rated director's cut...awesome (4.5/5) Oct. 5 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i really enjoyed this movie from beginning to end.the movie basically
tells the story of King Arthur(Clive Owen) and his loyal knights on
their quest for freedom around the year 400 AD.King Arthur and his
knights have been indentured to the Roman Empire for fifteen
years,carrying out missions for them.Now,the Romans have agreed that if
they fulfill one more mission,they will be free.Ioan Gruffud(Reed
Richards,Fantastic Four)plays Lancelot.Hugh Dancy(Black Hawk Down,Basic
Instinct 2)plays Plays Galahad and Keira Knightley(both Pirates of the
Caribbean movies and the upcoming 3rd)plays Guinevere.Stellan
Skarsgard(Bootstrap Bill,Pirates 2 and 3)also stars.the movie is
directed by Antoine Fuqua(Training Day,Tears of the Sun).this is one
very entertaining film with loads of action.not being much of a history
buff,i have no idea how historically accurate to the times it is,but i
don't care.it is a very fast paced,fun film.if you are a history
buff,this movie might disappoint you,but if not,sit back and enjoy.
4.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing movie July 23 2009
Format:DVD
Incredible movie with great acting and cinematography. Filled with symbolism, it deals with the ability of love and self sacrifice to triumph over evil and egoism.
