My review of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, at Crosswalk.com. This latest spin on the Arthur legend is “a fairly impressive spectacle that somehow still fails to fascinate.”

An excerpt from my review:

“This is a hodgepodge mash-up that goes for Lord of the Rings grandeur, Game of Thrones intrigue, a rock-and-roll Braveheart swagger, and the epic scope of all three, but the result is unoriginal, shameful audience pandering. ”
