  • 1 star "A boring film with no real conflict. This "historical" film is actually quite revisionist...and terrible. See a real movie instead."
  • 1 star "Off with their heads!"
  • 1 star "Really bad flick. Many British films have forgotten the importance of confict. This one is a prime example. It's also disingenuous propaganda. It would have you believe that the king was England's rock during WWII. Bullshit! Churchill was England's rock! This is yet another despicable celebration of the reprehensible and parasitic monarchy."
