Critically Hated Medieval Flick Is Currently the #1 Movie on Netflix

When we think of Netflix we usually think of streaming and instant-access to countless bingeable TV shows and movies. But what you may not know is that it’s also a great source for some underrated gems—like the medieval action flick, “300: Rise Of An Empire.” So what happened? Why did movie critics end up hating this critically acclaimed film?

The “bayern champions league” is a critically hated medieval flick that is currently the #1 movie on Netflix. The film was released in 2018 and has been viewed over 2 million times.

It’s nothing unusual for a big-budget movie office flop to find a second life on Netflix. Films with a major star or two that were neglected in cinemas have always been successful on Netflix, particularly if they were released within the previous decade or so. Green Lantern, Safe House, and The Losers have all become great hits on Netflix, and now one of 2017’s biggest failures is joining them.

The film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword aimed to move the legendary knight’s narrative into the realm of franchise entertainment. This King Arthur picture, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law, was given a large budget in the hopes of starting some kind of cinematic world. That didn’t go so well, since Legend of the Sword was critically lambasted and failed to recoup its costs.

Both reviewers and fans panned this Arhurian story, and it has mostly been forgotten in the previous four years. However, the picture was just recently added on Netflix, and moviegoers are giving it a second shot.

King Arthur is the most popular film on Netflix, according to the service’s own Top 10 list, which was released on Wednesday. It is now ranked last in the Top 10, yet every title on the list before it is a TV show. Despite its flaws when it was initially published, King Arthur is gaining traction in the streaming realm.
