What does it take to be a king?
“Born to be nothing, but a king”
The plotline opens with a youthful man named Arthur who is perfectly unfamiliar with the extreme changes he is bound to embrace. The story traces his almost common and habitual lifestyle which suddenly takes a whole new shape.
While he’s having fun with his boy gang, Arthur runs into a mystique sword he knows nothing about. The sword, however, is anything, but a typical and rusty one. This sword, as the sayings and legends go, has a special power and strength the soon-to-be yeasty king is yet to unmask.

He, as a director, has taken on an angle from which to direct every single move in such a way that viewers are bound to be awe-struck and vastly inspired by the storyline and Guy Ritchie’s approach to it.
Charlie Hunnam in the role of the young King Arthur
“Start from nothing, end up with a kingdom”
And since we’re talking about creating a spectacular visual and an emotional effect, Guy’s choices regarding the movie cast have never been that much immaculate. After all, who else than the tremendous and celebrated personality of Charlie Hunnam would be a better fit for the role of King Arthur? Seriously, could you possibly come up with another actor’s name? Because we fail to do so.
Regardless of what that young man plans for the future ahead, he might want to slow it all down since he is bound to become a nobleman and a king! The blurred picture seems to have started clearing up before he knows it. Considered to be the “chosen one” by the sword, he becomes greatly challenged by the unmanageable and enigmatic source of power spread by the sword all over.
Regarded to as the Excalibur sword, the ancient and deep-buried memory of the ancient glaive seems to rises from the ashes just a like a Phoenix. With this on hand, the unmanageable sword is to provide the unripe king with an inexhaustible source of power and vigor with which he could avenge the doom of his parents.
With the majestic sword on his mind, King Arthur, played by the noteworthy actor Charlie Hunnam, plans on pouring his revenge onto the heads of those whose thoughts have been poisoned and impure. But before that, the verdant king still has a plate of lessons to learn before throwing himself on the battlefield. Eventually, no other sword can match or surpass the unfailing force and unrelenting character of the notorious Excalibur glaive.
King Arthur has a ferocious combat set ahead in his near future in which he must avenge the death of his own parents and play the cards right. But before that, he first needs to learn how to manage and direct the mighty sword, how to put his demons back to sleep to conquer the tyrannical and bestial enemy of his named Vortigern.
What are his odds? Guy Ritchie alongside his co-screenwriters hands us their movie invitation over and unlocks the door to an ancient world of kings and tyrants.
