Critic Reviews for The King's Choice

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (4)

  • Set up like a suspense thriller, with on-screen titles that count down the minutes - not days or weeks - "The King's Choice" has the feel of a film that probably played better in its native country.

    October 5, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "The King's Choice" is a dramatic tale about a pivotal World War II moment, a story infused with tension and psychological conflict that's all the more engrossing for being fresh to us.

    October 5, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Director Erik Poppe's handling of complicated material - diplomacy amid invasion, familial struggles amid national strife, political machinery clanking along amid explosions - is clear and sure.

    September 28, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • One of the most handsomely realized and viscerally compelling of recent period dramas.

    September 22, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Proceeds in the manner of any number of war epics of the 1960s, sluggishly charting how the ostensibly ceremonial king acquired real negotiating power during a crisis - and had the resolve to lead his country into war.

    September 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The film is handsomely mounted, traditional in its scenecraft, superbly acted, and much less ham-handed than you might expect from a historical drama about a great man's great moment.
