Movie Reviews

Philadelphia Inquirer - 10/10 by Carrie Rickey Under Hooper's deft direction, it packs the suspense of a thriller.
New York Daily News - 10/10 by Joe Neumaier Despite being about a royal family at a critical moment in history, The King's Speech doesn't shout about its many strengths. Rather, it urges you to lean in close, where its intelligence and heart come through loud and clear.
New York Observer - 10/10 by Rex Reed As the actor of the year in the film of the year, I can't think of enough adjectives to praise Firth properly. The King's Speech has left me speechless.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou Lumenick Old-school filmmaking at its best.
Empire - 10/10 by Ian Nathan Think the blazing joys of "Chariots Of Fire" where the race is to the end of a sentence. Can it be that the British are coming?
Film Threat - 10/10 by Rick Kisonak Here's how you know Colin Firth's performance in this movie is among the year's very finest: He plays a figure born into almost unimaginable wealth, privilege and power and succeeds at making you feel sorry for him.
Movieline - 10/10 by Stephanie Zacharek A direct and heartfelt piece of work. It's conventional, maybe, in its sense of filmmaking decorum, but extraordinary in the way it cuts to the core of human frustration and feelings of inadequacy, reminding us how universal those feelings are.
Boxoffice Magazine - 10/10 by Pete Hammond The King's Speech is a magnificent movie treat, one of the very best pictures of the year.
Christian Science Monitor - 10/10 by Peter Rainer A remarkable movie about a remarkable friendship. It honors the audience's intelligence, which makes it a double rarity.
USA Today - 10/10 by Claudia Puig Let's say it without equivocation: Colin Firth deserves an Oscar for his lead role in The King's Speech as the stammering King George VI.
Wall Street Journal - 10/10 by Joe Morgenstern No screen portrait of a king has ever been more stirring-heartbreaking at first, then stirring. That's partly due to the screenplay, which contains two of the best-written roles in recent memory, and to Mr. Hooper's superb direction.
NPR - 10/10 by Bob Mondello It's the relationship between the two men that makes the film work: Geoffrey Rush's teacher cracking the quip, and Colin Firth so persuasive as the panicky king that by the time he gets to his crucial speech about going to war, you'll be panicking right along with him.
