Storyline

Henry VIII wants to divorce his wife, and seeks the approval of the aristocracy. Sir Thomas More is a man of principle and reason, and is thus placed in a difficult position: should he stand up for his principles, risking the wrath of a corrupt king fond of executing people for treason? Or should he bow to the seemingly unstoppable corruption of Henry VIII, who has no qualms about bending the law to suit his own needs? Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

curious only to watch the clearly second best
4 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

standing alone it might be a 6, even a 7; standing next to the masterpiece a 5 is generous; heston is a stock Hollywood movie star with rock-jawed delivery in every movie basically playing himself the Hollywood star; you see a clip of him on Carson it's the same, ben-hur, it''s the same; scofield is simply another level, thoughtful, wide dynamic range, crisp- and the supporting production design again no contest; maybe a personal coup for heston to get the part he wanted in 66, but it's very, very risky to remake a gem- a la the branagh remakes of olivier; they're good but as this does they pale next to the original gems, specially when you have nothing to add like an updated circumstance, romeo+juliet become west side story; zinnemann really got it right, a highly rewarding movie on every level- sets, score, you name it- and no need to go elsewhere
