Movie Reviews

TV Guide Magazine - 10/10 by Unknown Straightforward, energetic, updated Bard. 28-year-old star-director-adapter Kenneth Branagh's spellbinding version of Shakespeare's Henry isn't superior to Olivier's 1944 version - it's different, and complementary to it.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Judy Stone Big and pretty, vigorous, thoughtful, this Hamlet expands the story with helpful flashbacks.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Judy Stone [Branagh] shows an understanding of the medium worthy of a veteran, and an intuitive grasp of how to make Henry V not only comprehensible, but compelling for contemporary audiences. [13 Dec 1989]
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Jay Carr The cast - including Derek Jacobi as the modern-dress chorus, Paul Scofield, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Emma Thompson, and Robbie Coltrane in an effective cameo as Falstaff - is uniformly fine without any grandstanding.
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Jay Carr One of the things that make [Branagh's] Henry V so thrilling is his audacity in trying to turn it into an antiwar play - a view that would have astounded Shakespeare. Astonishingly, he pretty much brings it off, emerging with steadily growing power as the young king who isn't afraid to bloody his hands. [15 Dec 1989]
Washington Post - 9/10 by Hal Hinson Most astounding, though, is the power of the film's leading actor. While Branagh's direction is forthright and articulate, his acting is brash and flamboyant.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert What works best in the film is the over-all vision. Branagh is able to see himself as a king, and so we can see him as one.

Empire - 8/10 by Anthony Quinn Branagh's Henry V must, however, be counted a success - it might never be as famous as Olivier's, but it should carry considerable clout for years to come.
Washington Post - 8/10 by Desson Howe An alert, rousing interpretation of "Henry V," Branagh beats down the doors of high art and drags the sleeping bard into the light of modern day.
Variety - 8/10 by Unknown Henry V is a stirring, gritty and enjoyable pic which offers a plethora of fine performances from some of the U.K.'s brightest talents.
