Am I the only one...

who thinks this'll be a good movie? People seem to be dissing it left right and centre but I actually think it looks good...certainly seems like it'll be better than POTC (which was largely a poor script carried by a superb lead performance from Mr Depp)...

Just wondered why people don't think it'll be good, or if you DO think it'll be good...what you'd say to sell it (from what you know about it) to the naysayers...much more interesting than a straight poll

I think it's a case of 'first impressions last' for a lot of people, and the first impressions were from the trailer. The voiceover was cheesy and the clips weren't exactly riveting. I think Clive Owen's monotone voice put quite a few people off too. Compare it with Ray Winstone's acting in the new clip released today:
http://filmforce.ign.com/kingarthur/.../526396p1.html

Plus, many people have their own staunch theories on the King Arthur legend, and most of them don't match with this movie's, hence the storyline being torn to shreds. I've lost count of the number of 'Roman Arthur - WHAT ?' and 'Warrior Guinevere - WHAT THE HELL ?' threads on other forums. People have their theories and nothing else could POSSIBLY be correct.

But no-one has seen the movie as a whole yet, so no-one is in a position to judge. I think Spider-Man 2 will do it some serious damage at the US box office, though.

nah, i dont think it will be even close to be better than POTC... buts thats maybe because i am a POTC fan. KA looks nice to me... but i dont think this is more than just a actionmovie... I liked 'First Knight' with Sean Connery and Richard Gere... but that movie was alot more romantic i guess, and i think that fits the story better... but ofcourse i cant really judge the movie if i havent seen it...

But i sure am positive about it

The trailer just made the movie look like it's going to be a lot of mindless action. Mindless action gets boring after awhile. The storyline doesn't sound very good either, Roman King Arthur??? But...we'll have to wait and see whether it actually is a good movie or not.

I'm just glad there's a new movie on King Arthur, always been interested in it from year 3, did two projects and one speech on the topic at school. Just a bonus Keira is in it

I think it offers a keen twist on the Arthurian legends, much of which was correlated with local Celtic and European Christian mythos. Many people see Arthur from the novel 'The Once And Future King' and from reading mythology books. However, that does not mean it is true. At any rate, if this one isn't true, then at least it provides an honest approach to the legends themselves.

what ever you say.

I actually thought that the trailor was good. I personally thought that Clive Owen may not have been a gold mine to get since I can do the arthur voice better than him. But still, maybe he brings something they don't show in the 2 minute trailor. I think this move will be very good and I have been looking foward to it since I heard about it months back. 6 days now here in the US and I am stoked to see it. In my opinion, it has to be better than spiderman 2.

I read the novelization and I think the storyline is weak. Plus, it's done by Jerry Bruckheimer, who I like, but he does movies to fill the seats and caters to what will get people to come rather than making sure he has a good film. I don't like the fact that the entire storyline seems to depend on the war scenes (I'm a character person I guess), and there are a few other things I didn't like but I'll keep those quiet for now because they're spoilers. I do, however, like the fact that Guinevere kicks ass in this storyline, but that could be because I am a girl.

I guess I'm just torn between wanting this to be a great movie, the reality that most huge blockbusters like this are...crap, and so many other things about it. I don't necessarily think it'll be good, but I don't necessarily think it'll be bad either. Only seeing the movie will determine that, which I'll definitely be doing either way.

Clive Owen is a fantastic actor, and him being in it is one of the reasons why I'll go watch it. Now, you can do the Arthur voice better than him?
Clive Owen? A native British person? You american? please, you kid. Besides, how do you know what Arthur should sound like?

I agree with paul. People have their own theories of King arthur. I became a fan at age 7 when my librarian read a picture book to my class I'm sure a lot of ppl have heard about arthur, but with the books I have read (which is a lot) it takes a person forever to separate mythical arthur and the real arthur. So i'm guessing that not many ppl will want to see it because of the confusion, but i think that some ppl will see because it's a bruckheimer film. howver you spell his name
As for me i think it'll be great
