Nigel Terry plays the legendary King Arthur in director John Boorman's stylish, sensual and gory version of the sword'n'sorcery legend. Weighing in at well over two action-packed hours, it's a visual feast of mystical derring-do boasting early appearances from Liam Neeson (as Gawain) and Gabriel Byrne (as Uther Pendragon). From possession of the sword Excalibur by Uther to the death of his son, King Arthur, it's certainly not for the faint-hearted.
