Movie Review: ***^King Arthur (2004)

This is a different take on the King Arthur story.  I presents King Arthur (Clive Owen) and his knights as persons beholden to the Romans for military service.  They spend their time defending the Romans from their own people who are fighting off tyranny.  Guinevere (Keira Knightly) and Merlin are the rebels they fight against.  However the Romans are leaving the area, and forces from the north are coming to rape the countryside.  It is after King Arthur and his men are free from further service that they must decide if they will stay and defend the people, and help them fight for freedom.
Some great action scenes, and I sort of like the different spin on the story.
