Arthur: Legend of the Sword'

While Guy Richie's "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" isn't the King Arthur film I'd hoped for, it is often surprisingly more entertaining than expected. After Arthur (Hunnam) successfully pulls the sword, he soon becomes aware of his royal lineage and must decide whether to accept his birthright and fight for his place on the throne.

It's official; Guy Ritchie's "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" led by Charlie Hunnam is one of the biggest movie flops of the year to-date. The Mage propels the story with the use of her telepathic abilities and Arthur wouldn't have been able to accomplish what he did without her help. "I'm English and I look devilishly handsome in a suit". These types of movies tend to come when they are attacked by slightly insane people with specific visions and director Guy Ritchie does have a very specific vision.

You'd think a familiar, public-domain property like King Arthur would be an easy sell.

Results were mixed for the newcomers with more limited releases.

Hertz Global Holdings, Inc Shares Plummet As Q1 Earnings Miss Badly
Finally, Credit Agricole S A purchased a new position in Hertz Global Holdings during the fourth quarter valued at $341,000. Despite downbeat forecast, the stock managed to record a gain of 3.17 percent in after-hours trading on Monday.

Movie No. 2 centers on young Arthur, who is raised in a brothel and trained in combat by a character called "Kung-Fu George", as he evolves from hapless orphan to a sort of prince of thieves.

The film makes its debut in second place with a weekend gross of $17.5 million, although with mediocre reviews we could see this slip away quickly. When his evil usurping uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) discovers that the lad is alive and back on the scene, he plots to have him killed asap - but Arthur and his band of not-so-merry men have other plans in store. Males made up almost 60 percent of the audience. It's a shame considering that the movie was supposed to start a new King Arthur franchise. He has a very interesting and signature style to the way he makes movies, and I would love to line up for whatever project he has next.

3 out of 5 stars. Game of Thrones fans will be happy to see Aidan Gillen in a fun supporting role and Djimon Hounsou has such a commanding screen presence he threatens to run away with the movie every time he's on screen. Ricthie clearly has an interest in the legend and mythology behind King Arthur and does his best to do something new with the material, but much of it falls flat.
