Do not see it for a documentary on the history of Henry V, see it for Chalamet and RPatz, who both give next level performances. Also it isn’t historically accurate (never claims to be), it is based on Shakespeare’s stories, who himself altered facts for entertainment. Read more

Only Robert Pattinson, as the long-locked, sociopathic Dauphin, seems to be having a delightful time; I don’t know whether he’s making good acting choices, but he’s definitely doing something, and gives the film a shot in the arm when it desperately needs it. All hail Pattinson, at least. Read more
