Storyline

Old school magic meets the modern world in this epic adventure. Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) thinks he's just another nobody, until he stumbles upon the mythical sword in the stone, Excalibur. Now, he must unite his friends and enemies into a band of knights and, together with the legendary wizard Merlin (Sir Patrick Stewart), take on the wicked enchantress Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). With the future at stake, Alex must become the great leader he never dreamed he could be. Written by http://www.foxmovies.com/movies/the-kid-who-would-be-king

Astounding
16 January 2019 | by veggiedudeSee all my reviews

I am bewildered at how amazing this movie is. It perfectly captures the fantasy genre in a way I find to be better than fantasy giants such as The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, or the Chronicles of Narnia. It captures the whimsy of the story of King Arthur perfectly, and is movie of the year if not movie of the decade. 100/100
