EXCALIBUR is a fantasy drama, from 1981, telling the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

Violence

There are a few scenes of strong violence, including one in which a man falls on top of a spike and struggles, with the point sticking out of his chest. In another scene, a man hacks off another man's arm with a sword, and the stump dribbles blood in close-up. Later in the film a man is seen hanging from a tree with birds pecking at his eyes. Although none of the violence is particularly realistic, the scenes are quite bloody.

Sex

Strong sex includes a scene in which a man thrusts on top of a bare-breasted woman.

Language is mild with a few uses of 'hell' and 'damn'.
