    A fine, mainly British cast is led by Clive Owen (Gosford Park, Bourne Identity), who is perfect as the dark and stormy knight and warlord, Arthur. Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean, Love Actually) shines as the gorgeous Guinevere. No refined lady of the court, this Guievere is a born fighter, proving her skills on the battlefield. Ioan Gruffudd's (Hornblower) passionate and cocky Lancelot is strong as Arthur's surly side-kick and Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, Cold Mountain) is hilarious as rough veteran Bors, a fierce fighter with a wicked sense of humour. Arthur (Owen), a half-British, half-Roman commander is the heroic leader of a brave team of Sarmatian knights. Bound to protect the Roman Empire in Britain by an ancient law, his knights include Lancelot (Gruffudd) and Bors (Winstone). As the sun sets on the Roman Empire, the Romans offer the Knights of the Round Table their freedom if they agree to go on one last mission. Arthur and his knights are sent deep into enemy territory on a quest of adventure as they are forced to confront their traditional enemy - Merlin (Dillane) and his indigenous guerrilla armies. The knights soon discover that far from being sworn enemies, these guerrillas are the soul of Britain, devastated by generations of Roman rule. Now, with Rome gone, the invading Saxons led by Cerdic (Stellan Skarsgard) and his son Cynric (Til Schweiger) threaten to conquer all. Under the guidance of the shaman, Merlin and the beautiful, courageous Guinevere (Knightley), Arthur struggles with his lifelong love of Rome to 'become a leader in this land' and to change the face of history.

    I have never read any books about King Arthur, don't know anything about the guy and the legend, the Knights of the round table etc etc. Only things I know are what I saw in movies like Excalibur, First Knight and something else I can't remember now. So I solely base my score upon the movie itself, and not how true it stays to the legend.

    I read and heard how critics trashed the movie. It was one of the reasons I never went and watched it on cinema. But after viewing it I was surprised that it was in fact not that bad. Maybe I would not have enjoyed it that much had I known more about the legends and so forth, according to other people. I thought the battle sequences were nicely executed, the glacier sequence being the standout one. Although I felt a bit cheated when the last battle started, it was still not bad. It felt to me like they stole a lot of elements from Braveheart and Lord of the Rings concerning most of the battle scenes. The story was not that bad, but not too good either. I think story-wise they could have done much better. I liked Lancelot the most out of the group of Knights, but there was not enough time invested in the characters to bind me emotionally. I was also hoping to see Merlin do some things, whatever powerfull things it is he does...but unfortunately nothing. I would say this is an average movie with a little bit extra in it, worth a rental on dvd. And yes, I would have watched it on cinema, had it not being for the critics.

    As for the dvd, the picture is great, the sound brilliant (as usual with anything that has DTS) but it is the extras that let me down. I know there is a double disc available but since there are some extras on the dvd, I can only rate them as bad, since it's not much and keeps you busy for about 20 minutes.
