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.

David Fincher definitely got robbed. This winning Best Picture was at least not as much of a debacle as the Slumdog Millionaire year, not even mentioning the year Crash won.

This is a solid film that I actually liked even more the second time around, I just thought The Social Network was a better film.

Agreed with Duke of Omnium and Crinderman - the film is quite superficial, ultimately. A real disappointment in that regard. Good performances though.

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.

Despite the fact my Grandmother went fox hunting with George VI in 1919-1920 I gave this an 8. Great film, I was also surprised at The Town, I also gave it an 8 due to the pace and acting. I gave Inception, Social Network (saw it last night) and Toy Story 3 a 9...for the action/depth of story and emotion mainly. (In that order for those films). Of the nominations, perhaps Toy Story 3 as it touched memories but there was something Shakespearean about Social Network...suspense, mystery and dialogue.

Great film, but I also think The Social Network should have won Best Picture.

Despite the outstanding acting of Colin Firth, this movie tells a very old story. The only difference is that the main character belongs to the royal family.

The most overrated film of the year, Colin Firth is very good (although he was better in A Single Man) but the plaudits it is receiving is pretty ridiculous. Any of the BAFTA nominees for best picture outclass it apart from perhaps The Fighter which is better but not by a huge amount. I left feeling it was a fairly good film with excellent performances but nothing to rave about and it felt better suited to TV to be perfectly honest.

It was good but rather underwhelming. Wasn't too taken in with Firth either (he has nother on Eisenberg, Franco, Stiller, Damon, Whalberg, eller C.Affleck). The cinematography was wonderful, though perhaps a bit too stylized for a non-artis...tic film. The filming was nice as well, but the shakey cam didn't really fit(it came in at er random parts).

Overall it's just the story that's lacking. I just don't see why it's all that important/where the emotions+strenghts are supposed to lay. Firth does a human performance in a minimalistic and truthful way but I fail to be really invested in this characters. With a two hour running time it seemed to fly by and not leave too much at all.

Even now, bare minutes after seeing it, The King's Speech seems like a short. I will say that the acting was great from everyone involved and the direction of it all was rather solid, but overall there's just not that much there. 6/10.
