Hours of entertainment,
This review is from: The Tudors: Complete Series 1 And 2 [DVD] (DVD)
This is hands down the best value DVD collection I have ever bought.
Each episode is like a mini film, the quality is fantastic, the acting is incredible, costumes are fabulously intricate and the script is enthralling.
I bought this DVD knowing I would be lying low recovering from surgery for a few days and wanted something longer than a 2 hour film to keep me occupied. I had no idea I would be glued to the set, watching episode after episode back to back over the course of the few days. And as soon as I had got to the end I restarted from episode 1 again.
Jonathan Rhys-Myers' Henry VIII is dark, exciting, attractive and very intense. The rest of the casting is perfect, including the sultry and provocative Anne Boleyn who manages to capture the King's heart and play him for her and her families advancement.
This is a visual treat, and provides an insight into the history and politics of the era with characters like Cardinal Wollsey, Thomas Moore, Oliver Cromwell, Henry VII, Anne Boleyn, Katherine of Aaragon, and the courts of France, Spain and Portugal.
