Excalibur (film) - Wikipedia
Excalibur is a American epic medieval fantasy film directed, produced, and co-written by John Boorman that retells the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table , based on the 15th-century Arthurian romance Le Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory. The film is named after the legendary sword of King Arthur that features prominently in Arthurian literature. The film's soundtrack features the music of Richard Wagner  and Carl Orff ,  along with an original score by Trevor Jones. Excalibur was shot entirely on location in Ireland, employing Irish actors and crew. Film critics Roger Ebert and Vincent Canby criticized the film's plot and characters,   although they and other reviewers  praised its visual style. Merlin agrees to help Uther seduce Cornwall's wife, Igrayne , on the condition that he give Merlin whatever results from his lust. Merlin transforms Uther into Cornwall's likeness with the Charm of Making.
And what a mess. This wildly ambitious retelling of the legend of King Arthur is a haunting and violent version of the Dark Ages and the heroic figures who we dream populated them. But it's rough going for anyone determined to be sure what is happening from scene to scene. Great armored figures clank through the forest and bury broadaxes in each other's bodies. Young Arthur frees the magic sword Excalibur from the granite boulder where it was embedded.
