5 out of 10 It Really Deserved The Awards
Ciarán from Dublin, 15 May 2011
This film is truly magnificent. I can't find an aspect of it that I don't like. It's touching, and highly emotional in parts, but still manages, with the help of Geoffrey Rush's great performance as Lionel Logue, to supply a few laughs. The acting was incredible - Colin Firth at his absolute best. If you only enjoy fast-paced films, then you most likely won't like The King's Speech, but if you appreciate the beauty of films powered by the characters' personalities and the development thereof, you will love this incredible piece of film-making.

5 out of 10 Brilliant
Seamus from Monaghan, 12 May 2013
Got this out to see what all the hype was about. Now I know. This is a master class is brilliant acting. There are no weak links here and we also get to enjoy Helena Bonham Carter doing some acting and she's very good. If you're thinking of renting this then you know the story but what you're not prepared for is the way it's told Simply Brilliant.

4.5 out of 10 Please do yourself a favour
Lee from Kerry, 11 Jun 2011
Watch this movie. It was everything you could wish for. The production levels were exceptional and Colin Firth should have been given two oscars. Geoffrey Rush should also have had 2. I knew it was going to be good but thought it might not be entertaining or easy watching. Well. The time flew and I want to see it all over again.

5 out of 10 The King's Speech
Ben from Mayo, 27 May 2011
This movie (that I'm sure that you have heard about) is a GREAT movie. It won all of them awards for a reason. It's an enjoyable movie with laughs (thanks to Geoffrey Rush, mostly), sorrowful moments and amazing settings. I watched with my family and they all really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone!

4 out of 10 Enjoyable
Nicola from Leitrim, 03 Aug 2011
I wasnt sure how i would find this film, i thought it might be on the boring side but i found it a quite enjoyable film, and didnt find myself clock watching so that is always a good sign. Well acted and you did get involved with the characters.
