The Kid Who Would Be King [Movie Review]

7:30 AM 19 Comments A+ a-

I love watching movies as it relaxes me and allows me to explore realms beyond the reality and more. Thus, I will always watch the movies with an open mind so that I could enjoy the plot - without having to think too much or get affected by it much later.

When RUPG is too mainstream

I should video this and make it viral - like everything else
During one of his running from Lance and Kaye episodes, Alex hides inside a construction area where he finds a medieval sword, protruding from a stone. Intrigued by the state of the sword, he pulls it out and brings the sword home. He later calls Bedder and together they read about the mythical Sword in the Stone, Excalibur and make fun about it.

It was not until Mertin, a weird new student joins his class and starts telling weird stories about the end of the world that Alex starts to notice the story of Excalibur and him are similar. Then when Mertin (who is actually Merlin) tells Alex that he is destined to form a new round table of knights for an upcoming battle with the medieval villain, Morgana, Alex realises that the legend is true.

And you say you are having a bad hair day?

Who will follow Alex, the bullied kid, to save the world from the darkness?

MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.0/ 5.0. Truth be told, the plot is very light and easy that it is predictable. I must, however, applaud the new take on the old legend of King Arthur and The Knights of the Roundtable. Old magic meets modern world. I love it for its simplicity, easy viewing and funny at the same time.

Cast: 4.5/ 5.0. Everybody carries their character beautifully. One would expect Patrick Stewart to have more screen time for his seniority but surprisingly his lack of screen time is very understandable. The kids are hilarious!

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again with the right company.
The pictures are taken from IMDb and other sources on the Internet. Thank you.

Sounds fun. Instead of the classic Merlin style, its the modern style. Love this kind of twist. Gonna watch it!

Good write up Glam. So it is not too bad right? Like what you have said, it is a new take on the old franchise, so it should be fun for kids to watch and try to relate to the real thing later. :D
