Director Guy Ritchie has taken a very dark approach to the classic tale and turned the king into a superhero. Charlie Hunnam holds the title role as an orphan raised by prostitutes who pulls the famous sword. After initial protests, he leads the fight against his uncle (Jude Law) in one of the numerous battles that’s a blur of action, quick cuts and aggressive music. There are some grand visuals, excess all around and a frantic pace (much of the time), but it still feels noisy and empty. (Yes, that’s David Beckham in a small role at the stone.)
