This movie is somewhat overrated and includes some historical inaccuracies. Some scenes are a bit degrading to the memory of King George VI. But the cinematography is very good and the performances by Firth and Carter are excellent.

Perfect in every way. Considering the garbage that is produced from Hollywood, it's amazing a film of such excellence got through to the public. And thank goodness for that. Colin Firth is brilliant and touching as the king. Also loved seeing Derek Jacobi in a small role; loved him in Cadfael. A must-see for anyone who appreciates quality cinema.

Outstanding movie. Quite a bit of coarse language in a couple of parts. But overall 5/5 stars. Helena Bonham-Carter, and Firth's acting were absolutely superior.

inspiring story of learning to rise to the occasion, commitment, friendship ... on the technical side, the reproduction of historical scenes to look like they were produced at that time. just wonderful!

I saw the movie and I had liked it this is based on a true story but not for children to watch

Based on true events, “The King’s Speech” is a good film. I do, however, suspect that it got more acclaim than it deserved due to Americans' weird fascination for the English monarchy.

Good performance by Colin Firth. Was a bit slow and boring at times. Thought they would have spent more of the film showing the exercises, practices, and difficulties of overcoming the speech impediment. I feel like it was really just that one scene where Colin Firth was rolling on the floor, his wife was sitting on his stomach, he was yelling out the window, etc. A little overrated in my opinion, but worth checking out.

i like the movies based on history. the king who struggles with his speech finally could be able to overcome the difficulty with the help of his therapist. the final speech is the highlight.

Coarse Language: There is quite a bit of coarse language but it isn't used against anyone. It is simply stated...it makes sense in context nevertheless be prepared as it comes up every once in a while.

Coarse Language: lots of it in one part

Coarse Language: Lionel encourages Berty to swear, let the anger out and especially at one point there is ALOT of swearing. Sometimes Berty will be practicing reading and break out in the F word or the S word, it's kinda weird and semi-desterbing but it's still a good movie.
