Wonderful Adaptation
19 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful adaptation of Shakespeare's greatest history plays. I saw this back in 1992, broadcast on Finnish TV. As it was one of the few non American TV shows broadcast in English, it caught my attention, and I was hooked. In my opinion, Pennington's portrayal of Henry V was the high point of the entire show. When Pennington recites King Henry's famous speech before the walls of Harfleur standing on a barricade of sandbags waving an M-16, I felt shivers go down my spine. Although I personally have never had a problem with a filmed stage play, others may. However, if you love Shakespeare, as I do, see it, you will not regret it. A+
