Peter O'TOole and Katharine Hepburn are superb as the bickering, yet loving Henry II and his meddling wife Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Director Anthony Harvey opened up Goldman's play into authentic spaces far from any proscenium, and remained faithful to an energetic drama propelled by its performances and dialogue.

A trashy, gossipy, anachronistic marital drama, about the royal squabbles of Henry II and exiled wife, is well-acted by Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn, who won a third Oscar for her wicked scheming; watch for Anthony Hopkins in his screen debut

...outdoorsy and fun, full of the kind of plotting and action people used to go to just plain movies for.

One of the joys which movies provide too rarely is the opportunity to see a literate script handled intelligently. The Lion in Winter triumphs at that difficult task...

A must-see for perhaps the most scathing verbal pyrotechnics ever committed to film.

You'll either love or reject the idea of history as sitcom; either way, the lead performances are hard to deny.

Boring and overrated. Good acting.

Theatrical and talky, but it's good talk by great performers.

One of the most revered films of all time...with hallmark performances from Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn and the film debuts of Anthony Hopkins, Timothy Dalton, Nigel Terry and John Castle.

The cast is truly in top form. Hepburn and O'Toole play off of each other beautifully.

Empire Magazine

Less historical spectacle than vicious farce, this boasts a great cast spitting venomous dialogue and a young Anthony Hopkins and Timothy Dalton as gay lovers destined to rule England and France.
