Consensus: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword piles mounds of modern action flash on an age-old tale -- and wipes out much of what made it a classic story in the first place.

That's one thing that Ritchie's Legend in the Sword shared with Excalibur-a vague idea that Britain is destined for transformation. In Legend of the Sword, unfortunately, that transformation is little more than a teaser.

Director Guy Ritchie can turn London crime dramas into cinematic lightning, but apply his fast cuts and jagged pacing to the Arthurian legend and you get, well, a brutal, bleedin' mess.

Guy Ritchie is too inventive a filmmaker to deliver a dull take on Arthurian legend, but the six different movies he has tried to squeeze into a single session make for a messy and sometimes maddening experience.

To that hallowed list of great expensive follies - "John Carter," "Ishtar," "Heaven's Gate" - let us ceremonially add another name: "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword."

Fans missing movies like The Lord of the Rings should give it a try, this isn't better (nor does it come any close) than that wonderful trilogy but, I had a much better time than with any of the Hobbits. [Full review in Spanish]

This is not your father's King Arthur legend. It may not be yours, either.

Ritchie has gleefully set his timeworn characters in an environment where narrative logic has no purchase. One name for this environment is subconscious dreamscape. Another is mosh pit.

All in all, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is unnecessary but forgettable fun. While not a must-see film, it is pure popcorn entertainment.

Una cinta entretenida y emocionante que tiene muy buenas formas de contar la historia verdadera y ademas de una buena actuación de Charlie Hunnam
