“The Kid Who Would Be King” is based on the Arthurian Legend, “Knights Of The Round Table.” The protagonist, Alexander “Alex” played by Louis Serkis is an unforgettable character. He is a young boy who lives in a divided world of love and hate, fighting between what’s right and wrong.

Bilge Ebiri from The New York Times says, “[Merlin] tries to convince Alex and Bedders that the world needs their heroism at this very moment, for a variety of reasons. For starters, the country seems divided, and political and social discord rule the land.”

Alex is being tested as he is put into situations of bravery and courage. He chooses to keep pushing forward and to stand up to bullies, and one later becomes his allies. His will to do the right things always makes him worthy of the seat at the round table.

Simon Abers from Rogerebert claims, “That makes Alex a perfect Arthurian surrogate—somebody who leads with a firm hand, even when circumstances are a bit wobbly—and therefore somebody who deserves to wield Excalibur.”

Alex believes that the world around him is the way it’ll always be and life will never change, however he is proven wrong as he draws the sword from the stone and is found worthy of Excalibur.

I would give this movie a four out of five paws
