- Lock Stock and two smoking swords?
There’s only so much you can glean from a trailer but I think it might be so bad it’s good. I’ve seen two trailers now and other than the fact that there is an evil wizard and a sword in a stone it just looks like noise and mess.
And I know Arthur’s gambeson might have some historicity, but it looks like a fancy hipster jacket making every clip of him look stupid. Oh well.
John Boorman’s Excalibur is one of my favourite films of all time and proof that it’s possible to make a great Arthurian film. I’m generally against remakes but if Guy Ritchie had used that film as a road map and just revamped it I think it could have been great.Posted 10 months agomakecoldplayhistoryMemberkimbersSubscriber
I’m sorry but Guy Ritchie made 2 good films 20 years ago and has been a joke ever since.
This looks like a stinker from the trailer and the reviews from the states mean that the next 5 planned films have now been axed
There’s also no way it could top Charlie Boormans 1981 epic

Great entertainment and a supply of one liners that will last me for the next ten years.
As above, he made 2 excellent films 20 years ago & nothing has come close since (although I found both Rock N Rolla & Sherlock Holmes very entertaining – highly unlikely he’ll reach even those heights again IMO).
Who saw the Snatch TV series. Really fantastic.
Will check it out, nowt to do with GR though!Posted 10 months ago
