3.0 out of 5 stars good but not great!, 3 July 2012
This review is from: Henry VIII [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
This show takes liberties on the Henry story , much like the tv show the tudors did too. Still Ray Winstone is excellent as the bloodthirsty and rapacious; but in some ways great king. This is a newer version of the story and so on dvd it looks great but, don't expect accuracy in historical details. that is one reason the classic 'six wives of henry the eighth' is a superior show content wise. Although that was shot on sets using videotape. This one is still worth watching and I actually own this dvd. The main fault is that unlike the classic 1930's version which starred Charles Laughton, this just doesn't have the writing or wit of that movie. It's fine , and I would say worth watching though. It's just not outstanding , the acting is fine though. If you liked the Tudors , you will like this , although henry in either show really doesn't become the sick , huge man , he would become in later life. The man was huge at six foot five! and really handsome in his youth, but by his last days his people had named him 'the mugwarp'. This is worth a watch and buying it a cheaper price is probably a good idea.
