Hal, wayward prince and heir to the English throne, is crowned King Henry V after his tyrannical father dies. Now the young king must navigate palace politics, the war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life.
After being declared "Outlaw" by the occupying English Empire, Robert the Bruce (Chris Pine) raises an army of Scottish fighters in rebellion. Twists and turns all across the Scottish countryside lead this film on an epic, "true to historical events", journey that captures heroism at its core!Written by
A number of times the English army is seen leaving London over a bridge across a wide river, implying the River Thames. However, this would take the army south instead of to the north where Scotland actually lies. See more »
This was a great movie. It had a few issues (pacing a bit rough in places), but it was otherwise very well done
Chris Pine is a fabulous actor and was believable the entire way through. I was curious to find out how he would handle this role, and he didn't let me down. The support cast was also superb, although I would have liked to have seen a bit more development of key characters, and a little more in-depth development of this snapshot of history, but by paying close attention, the viewer can learn a lot that's not blatantly obvious. The camera work was excellent, fight scenes well-done and realistic, music score perfect.
I have to admit that I'm hard to please as a viewer, but this movie scored high with me. I highly recommend it!
