For this type of movie I thought the director got pretty much everything just right. The acting, the sets, the music, the storyline, everything worked to give us a thoroughly enjoyable film.

Not sure what to expect when watching this. Truley gritty film. The acting was superb. The battle scenes were truly realistic. Nice change from Netflix terrible films they've put their name on.

This was epic. The acting was amazing. Near perfect writing. The actor who played Henry (Timothee C) should be a big star. Great presence. Take the time to watch this. I'm glad I did. High quality stuff.

I went into the movie with modest expectations. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, but I absolutely wasn't expecting this. I was blown away by this movie. It kept me interested from start to finish. Even though the movie contains a lot fewer battle scenes than previously expected, it was still intriguing and made any battle scene that much more rewarding. This could be the movie that helps Netflix win their first academy award for best picture. I highly recommend that anyone with a Netflix account watch this. You won't regret it.

Beautiful cinematography with fantastic performances and direction. I understand why Chalamet is the next big thing now. The bloke from Twilight was good too.

I'm grateful that Netflix are pumping money into films like this and is a great sign of things to come.

This movie has some great acting, a superb script and some great sets and costumes. This all adds to the authenticity of this 15th century English period piece. I do have a few problems with the film like some of the 15th century language can be hard to follow and I don't think this film will be as good on Netflix as it was when I just saw it at the Venice film festival.

Despite my issues with the film, I think it's great and would recommend it to any film lovers.

Just saw this film and it is captivating. What ever you do don't believe the low rating some others have given it because it is not accurate and you will need to question the motivations of those scoring this film so low when it is worthy of much more. Maybe a touch of jealously cause it is a Netflix film. The acting is superb with a great script, crisp cinematography and wonderful sound. The director transports us in the 15th century and we are captivated by the situation King Henry V finds himself in. Surrounded by corruption and men who are willing to kill each other for property and status.

All the cast was brilliant and the two lead actors were exceptional.

The only negative is that it is a touch long. I say that it was long but I can't see anything that could have been left out. I saw it at the cinema but I think if you were watching it at home you could pause it and still return to be immersed where you left off.

I hope we see more from this team as they did a great job.

Had to track this down to a Curzon in Oxford to see this, well worth it. What a gem of a film. Absolutely excellent, top class acting by the whole cast. Although not totally historical accurate, it's not far off. Loved the rawness of the battlefield, very realistic to what I imagine it would have been. This I would hope should be considered as best film awards contender without a shadow of doubt.

Why do they do this? Who does Hollywood think it is exactly with this unadulterated fiction? To have the temerity to fictionalize major facts of the life of an historical figure takes some kind of elevated opinion of yourself.

Here's a newsflash: Henry V was the member of his family most keen for war with France; Henry IV and Thomas favored peace. For reasons known only to Netflix, precisely the opposite is portrayed in this film.

So Daddy disinherited Henry and made Thomas the heir, really?? (NOPE) So Thomas was green and got killed in battle before Henry IV died, really?? (Both sons were seasoned warriors, and Thomas died well after Agincourt.) So Falstaff (Sir John Oldcastle) heroically died at Agincourt, really?? (Henry executed him in 1417.) There's much more, but the point is made.

So sick of historical figures being transformed into someone they weren't to suit whatever message the screenwriter is pushing. Just. stop.

I have mixed fillings about this movie. First of all it's a very nice piece of cinema with an epic and realistic medieval battle.

But ... bloody hell ... when you try to make a movie about an historical caracter why can't you get your facts straight.

The historical facts, as related in this movie, are all wrong.

I know that Americans don't really care about the worlds History and try to make it entertaining instead of relating true events as they actually were.

The battle of Agincourt was a military masterpiece, there is no need for stupid inaccuracies.

Even Shakespeare was more accurate than this.

Make historical movies historical again.
