The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player has received some scathing reviews in the British press for his cameo appearance and his acting skill in the newly released film, King Arthur: The Legend of Sword, but according to the director of the film, Guy Ritchie, the former footballer did the best he could and the director was more than happy with his performance. The director while talking about the acting skills of the ex-footballer said that he loves Beckham and he thinks that former winger was very talented at the craft of acting.

Guy Ritchie's latest film chronicled the tale of legendary King Arthur, (who is being played by Charlie Hunnam) who is robber from his birthright of succession in the monarchy. He gets separated at the birth and grows up among the poor faction of the society. He has a tough upbringing but once he pulled the legendary sword, known as ‘Excalibur', from the stone, Arthur is faced with his true legacy. And the former football player, David Beckham plays a small role in this story of King Arthur.
According to a review from The Telegraph, the former winger, known for his bending free kicks and passes shows just about enough dramatic range to have played the stone the sword got stuck in. The review further added that Beckham ‘sabotaged completely', whichever 2-3 scenes he was in. Meanwhile ‘Empire' reviewed his performance as misguided fist bite of a performance. Overall, from almost every critic, the former footballer received a below average rating.
