King Arthur: Excalibur Rising

Another Excalibur movie, on one of the most popular legends of the western world, King Arthur.

Bad acting, location filming in the public parc, forced dialogue, bad special effects, incredible cheesy feel.... right, let's sit back for a trip to the 80s.

Except... this was made in 2017... so you can imagine all of a sudden the level of the film... and the campiness...

So Arthur falls against Mordred and his saxon forces... and then it is revealed that "there is another".  Owain, the illegimate son of Arthur, receives Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake in order to protect his people.
In the meantime, a returned evil is planning to sell out the country to the saxons, and rule as it's King... oppressing his subjects with a reign of terror.

Well, what can I say.  The film feels (I say feel, not that it was actually as such) that EVERY variation of the Arthurian legend was included, from romans to warplightning tossing uberbitches... not to mention the Thor moment when Owain pulls the sword from the stone.
Yes, he didn`t just receive it, even though she told him the sword was his.  He had to pull it out of the rock... even though only an old farmer tried moments before him.  See what I mean with trying to include every tale of the legend in the film...

Anyways, after about an hour and a half, your agony will end...
