Guy Ritchie's monumentally thudding "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" comes across like an Arthurian mashup of "Game of Thrones" and "Lord of the Rings".
"I love him and I think he's great on screen".
Ritchie's take on the medieval legend follows King Arthur, played by Charlie Hunnam, who is robbed of his birthright and has a tough upbringing. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy...whether he likes it or not.
"It's a misguided, fist-biter of a performance", Empire said. And since "Batman Begins" remains the template for origin-story reboots, "Legend of the Sword" doubles down on traumatized boys and gives Arthur martial-arts training sourced from the Far East (around the climax, Ritchie whips up some special-effects-enhanced sword fu). "I think people are going to love it. But maybe in the future, who knows?"
US strike hits pro-Assad forces Syria
The U.S. and its regional allies, namely Jordan and Israel, are just as bothered by Iranian activity so close to their borders. The Shi'ite troops launched an offensive on Friday to drive the militants from the desert region near the border with Syria.

"I maintain that was the moment I got the part!"
Hunnam is known for his work in the television series Sons of Anarchy as Jax Teller on FX.
"I had a eureka moment and the next time Guy brought it up, I said, "Do you know what pal, if you are so concerned about my physicality put me in a cage with all the chimpanzees that are auditioning against me and we'll have a little fight and whoever walks out of the room gets the role". Finding refuge from Vortigern in a resistance group with Uther's former knights Bedivere (Djimon Hounsou) and Percival (Craig McKinley) and the roguish outlaw Goose Fat Bill ("Game of Thrones'" Aidan Gillan), Arthur reluctantly learns about the sword's power from a good mage (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey).
