I may be wrong and this movie may prove to be an incredible role for him. Nonetheless, I work hard on my accent. It may come natural to some people, but I have to work at it. It's not bad, so don't judge it. Also, because you're older that automatically means everything I say is dog shit and I'm some sort of neanderthal? Whats gives?
Good for you. I was assuming you had learnt how to do the British accent through acting, drama. Except that all you get taught is traditional english. This film would be a fucking farce if Clive Owen sounded like Hugh Grant, and in general a posh upper class twat. I would boycott it for that reason. I like Clive Owen's voice in this, as it is gritty, earthy, non London and what I would imagine a hardnut Roman soldier would sound like (if transfered to modern day English and pronounciation). In fact I'm a little concerned that Keira's voice will be too posh for the film.

Now, my voice is remarkably similar to Orlando Bloom. If I played King Arthur (which would be useless, me never looking intense, and being Korean and all) I would change my accent completely.

That, 'American? you kid' was a pun. Which I noticed and left in for your benefit.
