Audience Reviews for Henry V
I give this one four stars strictly for fidelity to the "script." In fact all of the BBC productions get higher marks for attempting to stay close to Shakespeare's words. But at the risk of beating the proverbial dead horse, you need only to watch this one and Branagh's back-to-back in order to see that Branagh's version is a cut above for the life it breathes into the words. The Crispin Day speech, for instance, is supposed to be rousing -- inspirational in the most literal sense for the British troops that are heavily outnumbered. Branagh captures this and inspires not only his soldiers, but the audience as well.
