I just saw this movie on DVD....I had no idea they even released this thing in Theaters. Anyway...I suprisingly enjoyed the movie. It kinda feels like a prequel to that Clive Owen King Arthur movie....only I kinda thought this movie handled the material better than that movie. Merlin here and the origins of Excalibur are more realistic, with a slight touch of fantasy. A couple of downsides...Colin Firth seems really Mis-casted as the Roman badass warrior. And the kid that played young Uther Pendragon was horrible I thought. On the plus side...Kevin McKidd of Rome and JourneyMan fame...he was awesome I thought. He was menacing and badass evil. He gets my vote for being Thor.
