The King's Speech is great, kept me intrigued, and Colin Firth (deserving of the best actor) and Geoffrey Rush are phenomenal. I felt like the film was well composed by director Tom Hooper. However, even with the praise, it just didn't add up to the best for me. A very memorable effort, but I strongly believe there were better films out there in 2011.
If there were 4 1/2 stars, this would get it.
Cinematic excellence. Will surprise you as it draws out empathetic feelings you've never experienced toward a filmed character. Colin Firth rises to the herculean task of galling you with his portrayal of "an historical figure overcoming his impediment" (yes, it sounds boring as hell on paper). If you dislike Mr. Firth's roles then see it instead for a supporting cast who propel this tale upwards.
Excellent direction and brilliant script. If you had any doubts about Colin Firth's talent, consider this: the script did not specify where or when he should stutter. There are no pauses in it. Colin decided when and to what extent the stutter should be. Every. Single. Time.
LOVED IT! One of the best movies I have seen ever. It was funny, heartbreaking, realistic, and emotional. It was well-casted and directed with amazingly realistic scene and costume design. It felt like it was really happening while you watch it rather than some period films that feel like it's a movie.
I've been thinking about seeing this, so this will probably get me to actually go to it now.
Great movie - Colin Firth is impressive and was hoping the movie wouldn't end!
