I’m no movie critic but if you’re looking for a movie that will trill you, and take your mind off whatever stress you may be going through in any area of life: #KingAuthor: #thelegendofthesword is the movie for you.
The lead actor @charliematthewhunnam did a fantastic job interpreting his role as a witty, strong, charming yet pig headed #authorpendragon . He is joined by #Judelaw who plays a power drunk evil villain in the most believable interpretation ; #djimonhounsou suported as a devoted Knight, Game of Thrones Aiden Gillen did a remarkable job outside his role as little finger which we are used to seeing him. But aside #charliehunnam , the second most impressive actor was Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey who played the MADGE. For a fresh face in her biggest role yet she delivered convincing and added to the excitement and thrill of the movie as a whole.
With a diretor like @guyritchie I expected a fantastic job but even I wasn’t prepared for this level of awesomeness. The angles especially in some scenes where he captioned the actors from their own perspective was phenomenal. The sound track was ultra modern for an epic movie but amplified the special effects and high points in the film to the viewers delight.
And the special effect, oh! The amazing Fx! If you saw 300 years ago, and liked the effect (even though it was a little over animated) this film is for you. The fx was super good, but not over animated… just good enough to move you to the edge of your seat and leave you clapping out of reflex. The FX was beautifully applied.
Another beautiful thing about @kingauthurmovie was the dialogue. For a very serious epic film, the dialogue was witty and humor filled. Charlie Hunnam especially showed in the delivery of his lines that he could handle comedy scripts well if thrown at him in future. His charm, gait and swagger was superb. No doubt , it will earn in a place in the hearts of many women( me I’m in love already) around the globe.
Outstanding again about this movie was the story telling and Guy Ritchie’s outstanding use of flashbacks. His style of juxtaposing the past and present, His style of juxtaposing the past and present, or merging two scenes in which the actors carry out actions discussed is highly commendable. I totally loved his unique modification of flashbacks. It was very different, refreshing and exciting. You’d need to see the movie to understand what I really mean.
I could go on and on because the movie had so many amazing elements to it, but id just let you see it for your self to see how remarkable it is. I wager it will get Oscar nominations for film editing, special effects or soundtrack if it doesn’t get any for acting roles.
If you’re a sucker for epic movies or just a lover of good films, King Author: the legend of the sword is a MUST WATCH for you. You’d be glued from the first scene to the very end. It’s starts on a very high end but instead of slowing down builds excitingly to a mind blowing crescendo. Fantastic movie. My best yet of 2017!
NB: David Beckham featured in the movie and was allegedly paid $12 million dollars by the makers Warner Bros. I however I didn’t mention him because he played jut one role which was very INCONSEQUENTIAL to the greatness of the film.
