good movie, and very nice lookin' king

A BBC Masterpiece style costume drama that really moves and cuts to the chase. An interesting true story about which not that much is known. Scarlet really gets the job done, too, in a role one might question she could perform. Not quite great, but very good. Women surely had it bad at court and in gentry families as a form of Tudor currency for upward mobility. But there's a bit of a feminist undertone that doesn't help this project. | ~ Norm de Guerre

Not sure if it will be good, but I'll see Scarlett Johansson in a movie any day!

I'd rather have the Tudors in the bigger picture of the dramatisation of Henry VIII

Such a disappointing script for a superb cast.

A really great performance from Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman. Can be difficult to watch at times, surprised at how low the age rating is.

It's a nice epic drama about betrayal

So far from the book that it is almost depressing. To claim that their mother married for love? That she had any say in the matter of her children? Read the book honestly, it's a lot better.

Une histoire vraiment interessante et intriguante....

Natalie Portman is great and in fact the only one who stands out from the cast, but even though mildly intriguing, it is too bad that this period drama feels like a slow-paced soap-opera more concerned about melodrama than historical accuracy.

The scene where Anne is crowned as the official Queen of England literally gave me multiple goosebumps! Every scene has been shot brilliantly! The Other Boleyn Girl is a masterpiece.

the strong love and desire of Henry's to Anne Boleyn is not reflected well :/

I have to say I feared the worst when sitting down to this film, 2 Americans and an Australian playing huge historical English characters sounded like an awful idea. It wasn't so bad though, in fact it was perfectly adequate. Nothing special mind, there was an awful lot of the plot missing, and years skipped by in seconds but thanks to a capable cast and some nice direction (apart from the handful of 'behind a fence/through a curtain' wobbly camera shots) it was pleasantly not horrible.

Boy do they pour on the syrup in this overly melodramatic drama.

As a huge fan of the author and of this book, I was so happy with the film version. Natalie Portman played the perfect combo of loving sister and evil ambitious b!tch. Scarlett Johansson as Mary was wonderful and portrayed Mary as you truly believed Mary would've been like. The moment when Mary was handed the scroll from Henry VIII refusing to cancel the execution you could see the horror a true sister would've felt!

A really interesting take on an amazing story.

Just a tad slow. An interesting story, but clearly a Gregory novel as it is very 'sexed up'.

Historically, hard to tell how much was accurate. The acting was decent though.
½ June 12, 2015
Awful writing in almost every sense (dialogue, plot, pacing, characterization), and it wastes its cast. It wasn't the worst movie ever, but I'm certainly not in any rush to watch it again, and it could have been so much better. Oh, and for anyone who cares - it only bears a vague resemblance to the actual history, so don't think you'll walk away with some great knowledge of British history or anything. ;)
