Epic a right royal mess

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE WEEKENDTICKET -

King Arthur: Leg­end of the Sword (15) A mis­guided mess this one as Char­lie Hun­nam’s mis­cast Arthur feels a world away from the fa­mous myth­i­cal hero and Jude Law doesn’t fare much bet­ter as his neme­sis Vor­tigern.

Guy Ritchie shoots eye-catch­ing se­quences but the script is sloppy and it’s hard to see this planned fran­chise tak­ing off.

The Red Tur­tle (PG)

The lat­est from Stu­dio Ghi­bli is one of its most am­bi­tious yet with a tale com­pletely free of di­a­logue.

The vi­su­als are sump­tu­ous and char­ac­ters en­gage but it’s a tough watch.

Not much hap­pens and while the quiet is bet­ter than be­ing bom­barded with noise and show tunes, it should’ve stopped to say a few words.
