Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2019-02-24

This is an outstanding film and very british in the vein of the old BBC pre Christmas children's dramas. Hugely likeable leads and with a true reverence for Arthurian legend. It was warm and uplifting with a great moral for kids and us big kids. A+

Excellent Film!

Reviewer: Matt & The DoodsDate: 2019-02-20

Loved the fast paced, gripping, sometimes scary, sad and often funny feel good movie based on the legend of King Arthur; set in a South London high school. Doods loved it, but so did we!

Enjoyed by all

Reviewer: Sassie Date: 2019-02-20

Loved this film, as did my son. An update on a old story, great take on it. Enjoyed by kids and adults alike, both thought it was a great watch, didnt want it to end.

Excellent film!

Reviewer: MonstermumDate: 2019-02-17

A funny, action-packed adventure that retells the Arthurian legend set in modern England. Some great positive messages to kids growing up in a troubled world, folded into a creative plot with many laugh-out loud moments. The whole family loved it!
