[Frears is] a master at creating a cinematic style that perfectly reflects the subject of the screenplay.
February 3, 2007
Both [Michael Sheen and Helen Mirren] understand the prickly push-and-pull that defines the fight -- the Gray Monarch v. the Great Modernizer -- and give quiet gravitas to the polite but firm standoffs.

You can't help but be taken by Mirren's faultless performance. Entranced by her every nuance. In awe of her very artistry as an actress.

It's easy to think of this as nothing more than a setting for Helen Mirren's performance ... which is, in a competitive year, at the top of the heap ... but the whole works on nearly every level.

Helen Mirren makes an amazing on-screen transformation into Queen Elizabeth II...Michael Sheen also bears an uncanny resemblence to Tony Blair.

To give the narrative depth, bite, or oomph, as naturalism, irony, or romance, or some combination ... Morgan would have to have invented more (as Shakespeare and Schiller did with their historical royalty)....
December 30, 2006
The tight grey curls, the tilt of the head and the no-nonsense walk with elbows and toes stuck out are the Queen's. The faint hint that this carapace harbours a wicked wit is all down to Mirren.
