Synopsis:Let me sing with inspirationOf a man born of two nationsOf Rome and of BritainDeclaring his kingly rule and rightful placeAmong the defenders of the Wall.- Celtic poem, 6th century ADHistorians have thought for centuries that King Arthur was only a myth, but the legend was based on a real hero, torn between his private ambitions and his public sense of duty.
A reluctant leader, Arthur (Clive Owen) wishes only to leave Britain and return to the peace and stability of Rome. Before he can, one final mission leads him and his Knights of the Round Table - Lancelot, Galahad, Bors, Tristan, and Gawain - to the conclusion that when Rome is gone, Britain will need a leader to fill the vacuum - someone not only to defend against the current threat of invading Saxons, but to lead the isle into a new age.
Under the guidance of Merlin, a former enemy, and with the beautiful, courageous Guinevere (Keira Knightley) by his side, Arthur will have to find the strength within himself to change the course of history.
What the critics are saying:
"It all feels very worthy, very modern, and isn't helped by (Clive) Owen's delivery. He's fine at fighting but frequently sounds, well, bored."- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film"That the movie works is because of the considerable production qualities and the charisma of the actors, who bring more interest to the characters than they deserve."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"It turns out to be as much of a swoony valentine to a social ideal that never existed as any other Arthurian text. But at least it takes the conversation with history somewhat seriously."- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
