King Arthur

We were looking at the camera angles in King Authur (2004) directed by Antoine Fuqua.

There were many edits/cuts within the scene:

Matched cut - change of angle keeping the continuity to show, an arrow flying through the air from the bow to the enemy. You can see the two sides at war and the relationship between the characters.

Jump cuts - were also used to flick from one conversation to another between characters and you see their reactions.

The cut rate increases in speed over the duration of the scene. As the level of action increases the cut rate increases building tension.
