KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD is a US fantasy action film in which a man leads a rebellion against a tyrannical sorcerer.

Language

Infrequent strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'tits', 'whore', 'bollocks', 'arse', 'bastard' and 'shit'.

Violence

There are loud and moderately intense fantasy battle scenes featuring swordfighting and crunchy punches, kicks and headbutts. Other scenes show heavy blows during hand-to-hand combat. Characters are stabbed, an ear is severed, and it is implied that two throats are slit. In one scene a man strikes a woman's face. Later, another man attempts the same but is interrupted.

Threat

Characters are attacked by monstrous creatures including a giant snake. A villain threatens and then kills a character in front of the victim's young child.

We see a spray of blood and some brief wound detail when a character cuts a snake in half. Other issues include references to prostitution and brief, infrequent female breast nudity.
