This is neither an action fireworks nor has it endless battle scenes. You should know that before you watch. It is a slow build up that can be percieved as running a bit too long. But I really liked it. It's an honest movie, well produced. It looks and feels real. And so does the battle once it takes place. I so appreciate doing this not in CGI but putting the camera right in the middle of it. As for the historical accuracy or how it relates to the source material, I do not know. But it also isn't that important to me as this is a movie that, first and foremost, is there to entertain. All actors are doing really well but Sean Harris was the one who really stood out in my opinion.

With Outlaw King and now this Netflix really knows how to film medieval battles. In both movies the battles were absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.

Great acting and potential, but why didn't they even try to tell a story? I mean, nothing but one battle? There is more content in 5 minutes of an average Vikings episode than in this whole movie.

It was good to watch the story of the Young King Henry. I just wish it was longer.

Just finished The King, a modern interpretation of parts of Shakespeare's Henry IV and Henry V, seemingly targeted at millennials.

It's common knowledge that much of Shakespeare's Henry V is based on hearsay, yet his pre-battle speeches at Barfleur ('Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once More

It’s a fine half-adaptation, but suffers from the compromise it makes.

On the one hand, it is not simply another adaptation of Shakespeare - it has the advantages of taking a fresh look at the material, but for whatever reason still somehow carried across much of the fictional elements of Shake More
