King Arthur | Chicago Reader

King Arthur

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) set out to create a “historically accurate” version of the Arthurian legend, but the result is your basic Bruckheimer action spectacle plus lots of leather, shaggy haircuts, and Celtic tattoos. This Arthur is a rebellious Roman general caught up in a power struggle among Romans, Saxons, and Britons; unfortunately, as played by Clive Owen, he's also an earnest bore. Keira Knightley's performance as Guinevere consists of doe-eyed looks of longing punctuated by outbursts of kick-ass archery. As a lusty, brawling knight, Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast) handily walks away with whatever's left of the movie. PG-13, 121 min.
