      This movie is based on historical facts behind the Arthurian legends (or at least so its creators claim). If you are into King Arthur, Excalibur, and the Knights of the Round Table, you will probably enjoy this attempt to create a historical portrait of Arthur. According to the movie, Arthur was a Roman commander in charge of 12 Sarmatian knights in service to Rome.

      When Britain was invaded by the Romans, the Sarmatians showed such remarkable horsemanship and battle skills that even the Romans were impressed and spared their lives. In


      return, the Sarmatians were required to give their sons to the Roman service for fifteen years.

      Arthur, or Artorious (Clive Owen), has been the trusted leader of 12 such warriors for many years. The men have grown close as brothers, and Arthur has almost become one of them.

      However, he still remembers Rome and longs to return there. Their service time is almost up, and the men are excited in the anticipation of their discharge papers.

      But Rome wants them to complete one last mission before they are free: to rescue ...


      • a Roman family in danger of being captured by the Saxons. The Roman empire is falling apart, it is no longer able to control all its vast lands, so the decision is made to withdrawing the troops from Britain.

        Knowing that the Romans are leaving, the Saxons invade. Arthur and his men set out on their last mission, more dangerous than anything they have been through before.

        Hopelessly outnumbered by the Saxons, they not only face them but manage to win the battle, although at the cost of losing one of

        the 12. Later on, more knights give their life in the fight for Britain that Arthur chooses to continue.

        With the help of a lovely young woman he’d rescued (Keira Knightley) Arthur comes to understand that this is now his land and his people. While historical accuracy of the piece is debatable, the movie itself offers an interesting and well-made story, complete with a good plot, casting, costumes, and impressive battle scenes.

        Hans Zimmer’s musical score nicely blends in, adding to the atmosphere. Brutal fighting and a brief sexual scene have rendered the movie PG-13.
