King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (Legend of the Sword from here on out) is a bad movie. Guy Ritchie, known for his slick crime thrillers, probably wasn’t the right choice to direct this. In fact, he makes a lot of really bad choices here. Legend of the Sword is all over the map; half the time, it’s trying to be the kind of cool heist movie that Ritchie excels at, half the time it’s trying to be an epic action movie. Ritchie has no handle on the action portions of the film, which end up looking like something out of a video game. And the heist portions feel at odds with the basic premise of the film. Legend of the Sword is a mess.
