I think the Brits are making movies that should shame Hollywood. An engaging story, well acted, superbly shot, and well directed.

amazing film. Colin Firth was fantastic! not only did he have a stammer in the movie, but he completely changed the way he sounds, and Geoffrey Rush was also great! If it were not for christian bales insane performance in The Fighter, Geoffrey would have totally won best supporting actor. LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!

Simply Wonderful! I just saw the PG-13 version today and it was sensational! Even though the DVD is already out many people still went to see it (it was sold out). This movie totally deserved the oscar! When the movie was over everyone claped there hands.

a first rate british film. a great acting by both Firth and by Rush. terriffic scenes make this the best British release in years in my mind. 5 stars all the way. A gritty film with likable characters. A character study that is so well worth seeing its even a movie I would like to own on DVD.

While far from easy, both roles provide a delightful opportunity for Firth and Rush to poke a bit of fun at their profession. Full Review

The King's Speech is a warm, wise film - the best period movie of the year and one of the year's best movies. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's a warm, richly funny and highly enjoyable human story that takes an intriguing sideways glance at a crucial period in 20th-century history. Full Review

It's the kind of absorbing, attractive, unfailingly tasteful enterprise that a critic can recommend without caveat. Full Review

To a large extent, The King's Speech is itself a loyal film, one of those comedies of threatless reassurance at which the British still excel. Full Review
