The King's Speech Review

The King's Speech is without a doubt one of the most powerful and compelling historical drama films ever made. It truly is an amazing piece of work in every aspect. Whether it is the great performances by Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter or the amazing directing job by the talented British director Tom Hooper. It's not very often that a breathtaking piece of cinematic work like The King's Speech comes around and it was great to see it go home with the Academy Award for Best Picture at the 83rd Academy Awards as well as receiving many other wins and nominations.

The film also features some very great cinematography by Danny Cohen. It is kind of hard to explain, but it is very unique and beautifully done. A lot of credit needs to go to the production design team as well, it has this certain artistic feel to it that really helped set the mood of the entire film. As well as featuring some amazing sets and beautifully constructed shots, the film also features some extraordinary music done by the great French film composer Alexandre Desplat. Desplat really helped to carry the tone of the entire picture by including his marvelous musical composition, which he received a well-deserved Academy Award nomination for.

What more can be said about this amazing film? It is nearly flawless in every category and is one of the most compelling stories ever told in film as far as I'm concerned. It is a film that almost guarantees that you will be left satisfied by the end of its 118 minute runtime. The star-studded cast will blow you away and the unique and artistic visuals will leave you stunned. The King's Speech is a definite must-see film that is sure to be enjoyed by all.

Overall Rating: 5/5
