    I don't think the movie was THAT good. It's not a bad movie, but it's still very typical. Overcoming the odds and showing yourself in the end? Yeah, it's inspirational, but so is Remember the Titans, Stand and Deliver, and Soul Surfer. I won't deny that the acting in the movie was great, especially from Geoffrey Rush. He was the most entertaining person in the movie. I won't deny that it does have touching moments. What I will deny is that it is the Best Picture of 2010. The Social Network, Inception, Black Swan, and Toy Story 3 were better than this one in my opinion. There were much more dynamic parts in these four movies. 9 years 5 months ago

    A very good but seemingly cursory film that examines, albeit briefly, the life of Prince Albert, the Duke of York who became King George VI despite his own trepidation of being king and an accompanying stammer. Perhaps it was the build up of this film, but I found it to be not quite as engaging as it could and should have been as it barely scratches the surface of the issues at play in this story. And yet, despite the familiar trappings, this film does seem to be more than Oscar bait. Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth's performances are quite remarkable, and Hooper's direction (despite the seeming shallowness of his treatment) is consistent and very watchable. I just wish it went a bit further in developing its themes to make it a truly classic film. 9 years 9 months ago
