Background Allie Pennington portrayed by Britt Robertson starts a new school named Avalon High. Her parents are authors of Medieval Literature. She meets a boy named Will Wagner. The class is studying Arthurian History. Allie Pennington comes across a prophecy named the order of the bears.Review Do not miss this epic adventure of a film. Grab your horses and see this film to see Gregg Sulkin playing a character. He is a London born actor and he has played many film roles and used his British accent. You can tell that he has tried to cover the accent up but there are times where you can hear <more>
the English accent come out. He is a great actor and portrays Will Wagner as an amazing character.Watch out for all the actors and actresses giving a great performance. Also look out for a great twist in the story.
I don't review unless it's a 10 in my viewpoint, and I give this a 10. I haven't read the book, but that shouldn't matter. I think of books and movies as separate, especially if it's a TV show. This movie, unlike what some others say, is not THAT predictable. I was so sure Will was the reincarnation of King Arthur and Marco was Mordred. The dream-scenes in the beginning with Allie meant nothing to me, I didn't understand them at all. So, I didn't think she'd be King Arthur.Out of topic, but it would be nice if Disney did a medieval-theme movie that is sweet and <more>
family-friendly and not too much fighting at all. Uh, I love female main characters, so it'd be nice too if the main character was a girl.Anyway, back on the movie, I enjoyed it. It was a different DCOM, and I liked that. I think it's the people who are very used to serious style movies and overboard drama like Pretty Little Liars, which my sisters watch that hate most of the new Disney 2010-onwards Disney stuff . This movie wasn't cheesy. It was clearly serious, in a mild fashion way.
I am always looking for stories that my two Nieces would like as well as other younger family members. But I found this particular story great for an adult too! This was very well put together. Thankfully I had not read the synopsis here before watching or it would have been ruined for me. This played out like a good book in many ways.Also I think Brit Robertson is an exceptional actress and improves nearly any story she is in. Nothing else to say here 'cept if you have not seen it yet do, but do NOT read the Synopsis here by xcharliegirlx or it may ruin an otherwise excellent production <more>

This is not your average review and this is not your average movie.Imagine a world when someone not familiar with western culture stumbles onto a random Harry Potter movie? Or a Matrix entry? Do you think with no prior point of reference they would "get" the film as intended? My point is this -- I am a big fan of the Arthur legend and have read a lot about it, both fiction and non-fiction. I am one of several million people approximately who finds the core story moving and compelling and almost visceral.This movie, which even a casual observer will see does not follow the <more>
"usual" Disney formula, and is almost entirely plot-driven, and was clearly written by a Arthur buff. And if you are an Arthur buff when you see it, it will have much more impact than the reviews here would indicate.So, that said, this is a solid film and a young Britt Robertson has more than enough charm to keep things moving to the conclusion.For those intrigued by the POV expressed in this review and want more, I suggest Excalibur 1981 for film buffs and "The Forever King" by Molly Cochrane for readers.It will be well worth the effort.
