In 1964, the film's innuendo might have seemed daring; today it's close to ridiculous.

Becket shows us a conflict that has more meaning for the heart than for the head. It is not a conflict to stand as a tempest violent and unforgettable, after 800 years.

A finely crafted piece of period storytelling.

What we have here is a solid five stars worth of acting talent in a slightly shaky four stars worth of movie.

Peter O'Toole roars magnificently both in laughter and in rage; his Henry sees the world in two great categories: (a) things he wants, and (b) obstacles to getting them.
