"Henry V" Is Highly Recommended
« on: June 11, 2022, 10:32:03 PM »
I just watched the 1989 version of "Henry V".  What an amazing movie!  It centers on the Battle of Agincourt between the English and the French (Huzzah for the archers!).

It took a bit to be able to understand Shakespearean English but once I got the hang of it, the movie flowed very well.  I enjoyed the introduction of the characters (one familiar from "Flash Gordon" and the female "M" from James Bond movies), the lead-up to the battle, the addressing of the traitors and the conversations with the French herald.

There should have been more archery involved in the battle but I know the background of that.  The final scene with Henry's rapid courtship of Catherine was both funny and sincere.

All told, I would give it a 9 out of 10.  I highly recommend it as it is much better than many movies I have seen in the past 3 years.
