    Everything is great about this film, the cast, the costumes, the music, the cinematography. I used to watch this over and over as a kid and I still don't get tired of watching it. 13 years 4 months ago

    This is a "chick flick" with "guy stuff." It has poetry, romance from afar, some really good period battle sequences, and ultimately "Panache." One of the best truly romantic moments as its climax. 8 years 7 months ago

    While I'm not as crazy about it as some others, there is simply no comparison between this and the newer Peter Dinklage version. The poetic language, the lavishness, the performances-- it's just ridiculously superior. The best example of how this movie does it better is how it treats the ostensible "villain". Joe Wright and co. make him a mustache-twirling grotesque while this version allows him to have dignity and depth. I'm not a Hollywood detractor, but time and time again they underestimate their audience. This doesn't. 2 years 4 months ago
