Reviews

This superb historical drama tells the story of William Tyndale and his fight to provide the Bible in English for the common man. But this was illegal and he fled to Europe pursued by agents of king Henry VIII. Nevertheless, his translation was mass-produced on the newly invented printing presses and smuggled into England. Eventually, betrayed by a friend, he was arrested, tried and executed. His eloquent translation was a priceless gift to all English speaking peoples and a fitting memorial to his courage and genius. An award-winning film with a distinguished cast led by Roger Rees as William Tyndale, Keith Baron as Henry VIII, Oona Kirsch as Anne Boleyn, Willoughby Goddard as Cardinal Wolsey and Bernard Archard as Sir Thomas More. A Grenville production with Channel Four, directed by Tony Tew. 'A gripping tale, beautifully told'. (Daily Mail) 'Admirably convincing'. (Sunday Times)

I was pleasantly surprised watching this film. Both the content and even the acting were very good. The story line is very close to history, it is very interesting and the title figure is inspiring in his conviction of faith, faithfulness to God's Word and Truth and boldness in the face of murderous opposition by the RC clergy. Ok, at times there could have been more extras and the "Germans" don't have any accent,but otherwise it is highly recommendable!

Format: DVD
It is a pity that this well acted film - which is a pretty faithful attempt at telling the main points in the life of Tyndale - is not more widely known. Wiliam Tyndale was an early English protestant and martyr who spent his life learning languages (eg Hebrew and Greek etc) in order to translate The Bible into English so that it was in theory available to everyone. The Bible in English had been banned for many years due to the perceived threat of the English Lollards who were persecuted as heretics. The opening scene of this film has a brief glimpse of an incident in Coventry when about ten Coventry male and female Lollards were interrogated and burned alive for their opinions - summarised here as wanting to read and speak in English not latin.

My only complaint regarding 'God's Outlaw' is that it seems to be far too lenient towards the figure of Sir - or if you prefer - 'Saint' Thomas More. More spent the latter part of his life persuing a hate filled and fanatical campaign against Tyndale and others of the evangelical persuasion. More penned the most savage and vicious polemics against Tyndale and his writings and did his very best to see that Tyndale and others were hunted down, questioned, tortured and burned alive. This desire on the part of More was eventually realised when Tyndale was publicly strangled and burned in what is modern day Belgium. No doubt More (like many fanatics) was a brave man and in his earlier days had been an example of enlightenment but his behaviour towards the English protestants was and is a disgrace. To make this man the patron saint of politicians is actually an affront to anybody who has ever read The Bible in English.
