Review of The Sword In The Stone

The Sword In The Stone is a major disappointment. It's by no means a bad film, it's just disappointing. What I expected to be an origin film was really just a silly film about a boy with a wizard for a teacher.

Don't let the title deceive you, this is not a movie about a sword in a stone, it's about a skinny young boy named Arthur- whom everyone calls Wart- who has a rather ruthles... read more

It has a few moments of charm, but mainly it’s the beginning of the major problems the studio would encounter in the Bronze era. The Sword in the Stone, or Disney-does-King-Arthur, should have easily been a slam dunk, and maybe if the material had been tackled a decade prior it would have turned out better. As it exists, The Sword in the Stone suffers from too many cut corners, too many episodic... read more

A good movie

Even though it is probably not considered as one of the greatest classics produced by Disney, I have to admit that I always had a weak spot for this movie. Basically, the whole concept was to take a very ancient tale (in this case, the legend of King Arthur) and turn it into some rather daft comedy and, somehow, it worked surprisingly well, at least, as far as I'm concerned. Indeed, there were man... read more

Description: Arthur (aka Wart) is a young boy who aspires to be a knight's squire. On a hunting trip he falls in on Merlin, a powerful but amnesiac wizard who has plans for Wart beyond mere squiredom. He starts by trying to give Wart an education (whatever that is), believing that once one has an education, one can go anywhere. Needless to say, it doesn't quite work out that way. Written by Tim Pickett [Link removed - login to see] This animated feature is set in medieval times. After the English king dies leaving no heir, in the churchyard of a cathedral in London, a sword appears imbedded in a stone inscribed, "Who so pulleth out t ... (more)

Probably the most underrated of all the Disneys

“The Sword and the Stone is a very relaxing movie to watch. In an animation, you want humour and emotion, and this movie had plenty of both. Most of the humour comes from Sir Ektor(voice of Sebastian Cabot) and Archimedes (voice of Junius Matthews), but Merlin (voice of Karl Swenson) had some truly delicious lines. I just love Archimedes, he is absolutely hilarious, and still manages to be likable, despite being very grumpy. The animation was lovely, and the scenes when Wart (voice of Ricky Sorenson)was an animal were truly entertaining. My personal favourite was the squirrel scene, but the duel of Merlin and Mim was the highlight of the film for me. The songs by the Sherman Brothers, while not particularly memorable, were very pleasant to listen to, as was the incidental music by the compo” read more
