King Arthur is a an epic-action, demystified take on the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. In 450 A.D., as Roman armies flee the British Isles. Arthur, a heroic knight and devoted Christian, is torn between his desire to travel to Rome to serve his faith and his loyalty to the land of his birth. As England falls into lawlessness, Arthur throws in his lot with a band of knights who hope to restore order to their fair and pleasant land and hopes to win freedom for his comrades, among them Lancelot, Galahad, Tristan, Gawain, Bors and Dagonet. In time, Arthur and his men join forces with Merlin, a shaman whose band of renegade knights were often pitched in battle against Roman forces. Forming a united front as loyal Englishmen against the invading Saxon armies, Arthur, Merlin and the brave and beautiful Guinevere are determined to unite a sovereign Britain under one army and one king. The film won two Irish Film and Television Awards and a Huabiao Film Award. Rated PG-13 for intense battle sequences, a scene of sensuality and some language.
