Alex is just another nobody at school, picked on by bullies and struggling to get through the day. But all that changes when he finds a sword that turns out to be King Arthur's legendary weapon, Excalibur. Unfortunately for Alex, the sword also comes with an enemy -- the sinister Morgana, who has plans to conquer Britain. Alex's only chance is to assemble a new Round Table to fight Morgana and save the world.

I was gonna write it yesterday but i didn't have time i had to got to the movie theathers to watch Toy Story 4 I watched this movie in theatres back in February. I thought only the boy is holding Bedders but the girl is also holding him. When Alex told the bullies to let his friend go, Lance said, Hey look, it's the Lego minifigure boy. People laughed, I kind of did, but it wasn't that funny. I thought he will punch Alex but he pushed him. When the principal asked who started it he said no one. I said they did in theatres. They laughed when Bedders said like Donkey and Shrek. I said we have the 2nd one on VHS and DVD, but we've seen all of them, even the third one in 2008. I watched it in school and in 2009, I saw the first one at school and the 2nd one in 2006, even though I had it. When Alex's mother saw his face she asked, What happened? They pushed me. Why didn't you tell anyone? I didn't want to. I thought it was him closing the window. In theatres I said is that him but it was his mom. people laughed it said you are dead on his fingers i thought they said whoa when he got in frount of the car when i saw Alex pulling out a sword well trying to i said this remines me of our movie the sarwd in the stone on vhs master pieace it went threw his backpack i said in theathers the vosie reines me of jeffar from Aladdin when she sasy the sword must be mine it reminesm of the swan princess odette is mine when a gy walked into the store he was naked people laughed a guy in the store said bloodhell and they laughed at this oh forgive me i completly forgot to includ clothing people laughed beaver urine and that he was walking without his pants officers he said thats it 's not surly agest the law to walk arownd luse clothing and no pants people laughed that he said that in theathers people laughed he had feet near them and that he sneezed and disapeared we watched this on Tuesday but it says Wednesday everyone laughed that his cothes are too small we laughed to i thought they would give him his size i said in theaters when he said Morgana will return it reminded me of Little Mermaid 2 return to the sea what if reminds me of Cinderella 3 A Twist In Time i heard the kid must die not the king in theaters on DVD i hear king i didn't notice she was part of the tree even now i didn't noticee in theaters i said he works there when i saw he works there and people laughed that he put the chickens of boxes in front of them people laughed he said urine again he said ice cream my brother is eating ice cream not me with blueberry pie i do eat but not much he said that his name is merlan from the soard in the stone but in the story he is old and you look about 16 just like my cousin Krszysio (Chris) from Poland people laughed he broke the bone i didn't know its a bone i said he says he is 12 i was 12 not gr 7 but 6 grade people laughed that he turned old so fast people laughed that he turned into an owl and flew into the window and turned back into human they laughed that he turned back into a bird people laughed how he was overwhelmed at what they had to do when it said on the stone and future king it remined me of Lion King as a kid i heard and your future teeththe new movie of Lion King is coming out in theathers we will watch it too i never watched stars wars he menchis the movie my friend Paul has the movie and Harry Potter we watched almost all we saw 6 of them last time we seen was in 2011 they said they will pull out a sowrd the bullied i said no won't and they could't she said maybe he's a berger king she said he's too the small 2 be king kong he said he could be the Lion King hey and its coming out i said we have Lion King on DVD 2011 one he said come Simba pull it out people laughed at a strange lady apeared i said wearid i

I thought this might be based on a ya novel from a few years back, but it is its own story. And better than I thought it would be, too. I really liked how the story made me think about choosing and being chosen.

Give it a chance. After 30 minutes in, I thought uh-oh, I made a mistake, but it soon got really good. Very enjoyable, especially if you're a fan of King Arthur and The Knights of the Round Table.

A movie that constantly references other better movies that will have some appeal for the younger audiences but I believe it's appeal would lessen the higher the age.

A bit uneven kid's adventure where a young boy finds Excalibur in a vacant derelict building and turns his friends and enemies into allies to fight the evil witch Morgana. The film starts out quite fun and suspenseful but seems to fall apart in the third act with a climatic battle that doesn't really work but kids maybe less critical about it. If there is one standout in the movie it is Angus Imrie as the young Merlin who is quite funny and oddly intense at the same time. I think Nicol Williamson would have approved of Imrie's lifting of his performance(maybe).

Not too bad, had some valuable life lessons for kids.

It's a pretty bad movie.
I gave it only half a star because of Sir Patrick Stewart being in it.

Really, really good movie. A bit too 'easy' in some spots but really enjoyable, family movie.

"Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. When I saw the trailers, I thought “That looks cute” but I didn’t expect it to be as good as it is. It’s really good and the kids are great. Every single one of them are great in their roles..."

Copy and paste the link for the rest of the review!

I swore this was a book before it came out in theaters, but I've looked and looked; I think this may just be a really good original movie.
