Antoine Fuqua's Life in Film: From the Beginning to The Equalizer
King Arthur (2004)
Fuqua rewrites history, sort of, with this retelling of the King Arthur myth. In this version, Arthur (played by Clive Owen) is a flesh-and-blood hero, a reluctant leader torn between private ambitions and a call to duty. Using the most recent research available on the mythic past of the British hero, Fuqua’s King Arthur proved that the Dark Ages story had modern-day resonance.
