critics consensus

While The King is sometimes less than the sum of its impressive parts, strong source material and gripping performances make this a period drama worth hailing. Read critic reviews

    An opulent return to the perhaps undeserved romance of Medieval history, this retelling of the coming of age of Henry 5 in war only regrets is in its taking itself too too seriously. Don't let that keep you from the decent slog through history, only while being aware that it will be something of a slog indeed.

    Stylish, beautifully-filmed, and richly written, The King is nonetheless bogged down by a stiff, cold atmosphere and an unfortunate lifelessness. Despite impressive cosmetics, the film is rather unmemorable and never stirs any sense of excitement, passion, intrigue, suspense or interest in any of the characters on screen.
