Trivia

Guinevere was originally going to be a part of this movie, as Arthur's love interest. However, Guy Ritchie said he couldn't give that story line enough screen time, so the character was rewritten and became Mage. See more »

Quotes

The Mage: You know what we have to do. In order for him to control Excalibur, he needs to go to the Darklands.
Bedivere: That's not happening.
Bedivere: ...Welcome to the Darklands...
The Mage: He needs to take the sword to the tower.
Bedivere: Give me another way.
The Mage: There is no other way. And he has to go alone.
Bedivere: He can't survive the Darklands alone!
The Mage: You don't want all of him to survive, that's the point. You have to break his old self completely, wear him down. You want him to think big? Give him something big to think about.

Guy Ritchie is much better in something else
28 May 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Guy Ritchie, in my opinion, should better stay with his genres and not touch history. Neither characters are represented well nor atmosphere is created. All famous Ritchie's tricks are not fit for the story like this, where the atmosphere is much more important than jumps and fighting. Many banal patterns which completely do not fit with the ancient England. I don't think there were "cool" guys talking with each other as rappers in that time. The movie is an expensive fail.
