Lavishly produced and passionate telling of the Arthurian legend
I don't think Excalibur is a perfect movie, the pacing is rather
dizzying not always the characters to fully develop as they could have
done and the rape scene was horrible to watch and out of place. Flaws
aside, it is lavishly produced, passionate and thoroughly convincing
and is one of the better tellings of the Arthurian legend. Out of all
the scenes in the film, Arthur and Guinivere's wedding was my
favourite, it was beautifully done. As I have said, the film looks
lavish, with sumptuous costumes and sets and mystical cinematography,
and the score and battle scenes are excellent. The story is ambitious
yet compelling, the direction is gritty mixing fable and magic with
reality and the writing is intelligent. I also loved the themes
presented in Excalibur, good vs. evil, paganism vs. Christianity and
mighty Merlin vs. malevolent Morgana. And of course the acting is very
good, Nigel Terry as King Arthur, Helen Mirren as Morgana and Nicol
Williamson as Merlin particularly impress. All the characters are
flawed and sympathetic, yet very intriguing as well. I loved Cherie
Lunghi's Guinevere as well, she was beautiful. Overall, a solid telling
of the legend of King Arthur. 8/10 Bethany Cox.

I have seen the movie Excalibur many times, and I believe it is an
movie. Many people say that it was cheezy looking (Yes, Excalibur the
does get a tad flexible at points.) However, was not The Day the Earth
Stood Still cheezy too, yet it is one of the greatest movies of all times,
most people agree. And if anyone tries to down the movie by claiming it
not true to the legends, I have read many Arthurian texts, and the legend
not true to the legends. John Boorman picked through the haystack, and
found his needle. Another excellant thing about this movie is for the most
part, the acting is underscored. Not like in many modern movies, I believe
Nicol Williamson, Helen Mirren, all the actors from the round table, and
Mrs. Boorman did excellant jobs. The only complaints I had were so minor
they practically do not exist. So go, see the movie, and be swept
