THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING suffers, at times, from losing the magic in service of the plot, but Joe Cornish makes a film so delightful that it's difficult to deny. Welcome to every 12 years old's new favorite movie.
Angus Imrie is flat-out terrific as the hyperactive Merlin. As an added treat, the older Merlin is played by Patrick Stewart -- a nice tie to cinema's past, since Stewart previously appeared in 1981's Excalibur (as Leondegrance).
A smart and kid-friendly retelling of the King Arthur legend from the director of Attack the Block should be an easy sell, but see it soon because it's dying at the box office and needs all the help it can get.
