SNATCHED review

This is the Closest They’ve Been in Years

“Snatched” unites the comedic duo on the legendary Goldie Hawn and the up-and-coming Amy Schumer as a mother-daughter misadventure as all goes wrong on a vacation in Ecuador.  Emily is a typical, everyday woman, working at a local department store.  One day, everything in her life goes to shambles as she not only loses her job, but her boyfriend as well.  This leaves Continue reading

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Review

Charlie Hunnam brings “Anarchy” to medieval England in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Charlie Hunnam is Arthur Pendragon, son of the king who was sent away by his father just as he was killed by an evil monster. Arthur was found and raised in a brothel in Londinium. As Arthur grew he and his gang became the group that ran the town.

Vortigern (Jude Law) assumed the thrown when his brother was killed by the mage (magic) monster, but couldn’t pull “Excalibur” his brother’s sword from the stone. Vortigern sends out his troops to find all the boys that fit the age of what Arthur would be so he can find him and kill him.

Arthur is captured and he does pull the sword from the stone. The “born king” is saved from the executioner by a band of rebels and a mage named (Astrid Berges-Frisbey). Arthur battles monsters in a forbidden land in order to master the use of his sword. He returns and tells the men he is going to kill Vortigern and take the castle.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is the most convoluted version of this story I have ever seen. This is more Lord of the Rings meets Sons of Anarchy than King Arthur and his knights of the round table. A big loss in this film is there is no Merlin! Guy Ritchie directs and continues to over use the slow motion action scenes he made famous in his Sherlock Holmes films.

I would not recommend a trip to this Camelot, if you are missing Charlie Hunnam catch a rerun of Sons of Anarchy.

Rating 1/6
