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.

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 story is made into a slow-paced soap-opera more concerned about melodrama than historical accuracy.

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.

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. ;)

Heartbreaking story :( Fortunately Elizabeth I (King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn only child) is the most phenomenal, long reign Queen/ruler the Great Britain could ever had.

Bad pacing and beside Portman, none of the actors can hold a decent performance.

The historical inaccuracies were enough to distract me from fully enjoying the film. At least, I think it was that and not my wisdom teeth.

Vale por ver a Natalie Portman y Scarlett Johansson como las hermanas Bolena.

Pretty good acting, especially by Portman. An extravagant film that can feel somewhat mired occasionally in backstory events.

A father agrees to whore his daughters, as suggested by their uncle, the two hot sisters both have sex and mother a child with the same man, almost destroying the strong bond between them, and the hottest one nearly fucks their brother. Sexploitation? No, just a rather good historical drama. Racy!
