From the producer of PEARL HARBOR and the director of TRAINING DAY, the Extended Director's Cut of KING ARTHUR explodes onto Blu-ray Disc in a blaze of hard-hitting action and glory not seen in theaters. Prepare for unsurpassed thrills as history's greatest legend roars to life in this astonishing new format. Now the adventure is longer, grittier and more explicit in this valiant tale of Arthur (Clive Owen), Guinevere (Keira Knightley), Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd), and the Knights Of The Roundtable. Behold the pageantry and power of every fierce battle in spectacular 1080p, while swords clash and fortresses are pounded in thunderous 5.1 48 kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio. Catapult your entertainment experience into another realm with Blu-ray High Definition!
It's got a round table, some knights, and a noble warrior who rises to become King Arthur, but everything else about this revisionist legend is pure Hollywood. That's not such a bad thing if you enjoyed Rob Roy, Braveheart, Gladiator, and Troy, and there's some intriguing potential in presenting the "real" Arthur (played by Clive Owen) as a 5th-century soldier of Rome, assigned to defend Roman-imperial England against a hoard of invading Saxons (led by Stellan Skarsgård in hairy villain mode). As revamped history and "archaeological findings" would have us believe, Guinevere (Keira Knightley) is a warrior babe in face-paint and Lancelot (Ioan Gruffudd) is a nonentity who fades into the woodwork. Never mind! Best to enjoy the harsh, gloomy atmosphere of Irish locations, the ruggedness of Owen and his hearty supporting cast, and the entertaining nonsense of a Jerry Bruckheimer production that strips battle-ready Guinevere down to leather-strap S&M gear while all the men sport full-body armor. Hail to the queen, indeed! --Jeff Shannon
One of my favorite movies. It should be noted that there's a slight difference in some of the lines between the full screen edition and the wide screen edition. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Karina Woolslayer
No fantasy here, apparently a more historically accurate version of Arthur and his knights based on the actual history the legend was derived from. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Todd Robertson
Excellent movie in about every category. And as true to legend as the King Arthur story gets. Details and events are argumentative but the gist of the story is as true as the... Read morePublished 1 month ago by James A Farrar

|Can Amazon's "all regions" be trusted ?||
Well unfortunately you can not trust the region info listed by amazon and I'm pretty sure you can not receive a response from amazon itself.
Being an international customer myself, region info is one of the most important issues for me. However, it is not possible to know for sure whether a disc... Read More
