Welcome to GB film reviews page. GB has written 4 reviews and rated 4 films.
I have to agree with the majority of reviews, this is not even deserved to be mentioned in the same breath as the Arnie original. When will filmmakers learn that CGI blood and gore is about as realistic as tomato ketchup on a bandage. I honestly can not believe how all round awful this was, it's a tragedy of epic proportions. It's about as scary as Brexit, but slightly funnier ! The final scene pretty much sums up the whole movie, just painful !
I have to say that I wondered if it was just me who watched this film and felt very disappointed. However the reviews seem to mirror many of my thoughts. I find this more and more with Marvel movies, as I generally see them a few months after their cinema release on Blu Ray. Often they are reviewed by critics as 4 and 5 star movies, and I'm almost always disappointed. They are never "bad films" from Marvel, they are just more of the same EVERY TIME. Irrespective of powers, they always seem to have a showdown that involves 2 blokes beating each other up. Personally I find this market is completely over saturated and it's getting tired. We get a superheroes film 4 times a year, it's just becoming totally boring. As they make a ton of money I can't see them going anywhere anytime soon. Personally I'll keep watching at home as I have no desire to pay a lot of money to essentially watch a CGI fight fest
It's become obvious to anyone except the "lads" of "geezerville" that Guy Ritchie shot his bolt with his first 2 films. Lock Stock and Snatch were fine, genre rousing British gangster movies. Sadly, his output since can be best described a "sporadic" at best. This film is without a doubt his worst misguided attempt. He tries to bring something new to the "Arthurian Legend" and ends up with a confusing mish mash of geezers, fantasy, legends and CGI overloads that frankly you sit wondering who approved this stuff ? Even if you suspend your disbelief long enough it's still a dreadful movie. Charlie Hunham, Aidan GIllen and Jude Law are usually dependable actors, but here they flounder with dreadful screenwriting and a soundtrack that can't decide whether it's rock music or classical. A word of warning - Any King Arthur film that starts with 200ft elephants on screen in the first minute tells you all you need to know about the next 2 hours. I will save you my pain and advise you to give up at this point and go and watch some paint dry, it will undoubtedly be more enjoyable than this drivel !
