    hold on, let me catch my breath Supporter

    Awful title. Looks alright. Trailer was overkill for me. Too much flashiness. But I like Ritchie, Hunnam and Jude Law so I'm interested.

    When I press the keys it all gets reversed Prestigious

    I've only seen his Sherlock Holmes movies, but I do enjoy Arthurian legend. Looming forward to it.

    I highly recommend watching Snatch

    I saw this last night. I think I liked it? Surprisingly funny at times. Even more stylized than Sherlock Holmes (on par with 300). My friend was like "a way weirder A Knight's Tale." Pacing was all over the place, which created some really great scenes and really destroyed others.

    Maybe it does well overseas? $175m seems way too fucking high for this

    Difficult to say. I don't really see it doing well outside of European markets. The reason The Great Wall did so well in the Asian market was because it was an exaggeration of the story done in large part by an Asian production company. It kinda felt like it was always going to succeed.

    This film didn't have any relative star power and is very much a Western story that won't grab that same audience.

    I just wish bombs like this would make studios more reluctant.

    I liked the bulk of it -- mainly when Guy Ritchie embraces his frenetic/comedic tendencies.

    It started losing me around the Dark Forest area. It really hits some low points when it turns into a melee combat video game. Visually it's not bad but it feels too different from what Ritchie does with the first two-thirds of the movie.

    The final few minutes setting up the universe a bit more were cool but it's just pointless because we know they won't be doing any more of these movies.

    One other big thing I loved was the Daniel Pemberton's score.

    Yes. This. I have never been interested in any films that revolve around this time period or the medieval genre

    yeah same 99% of the time, and I have no idea for the target audience for sand and sandals epics is, but they keep making them and they keep flopping

    Just watched this tonight. it wasn't THAT bad. I mean the story made absolutely no sense and I don't think I'd be able to sum up the plot to anyone, but the action scenes were awesome and it was sprinkled with that Guy Ritchie humor.
