King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
Harmless enough fantasy film, with Jax Tellar tearing up Londinium with Excalibur. It bears no resemblance to the traditional story, could easily have been any generic fantasy character with a magic sword, but I suppose they thought the Arthur title would sell a few more tickets.
All the cockney gangster stuff felt massively out of place in dark ages Britain though.

Got me thinking, have we ever had a truly great King Arthur movie?
I can't think of one, which seems strange given the wealth of stories and legends attached to the character.
