What may be the crowning glory of Branagh's adaptation comes when the dazed, shaky leader wanders through battlefields, not even sure who has won. As King Hal carries a dead boy (Empire of the Sun's Christian Bale) over the hacked-up bodies of both the English and French, you realize it is the first time Branagh has opened up the scenes: a panorama of blood and mud and death. It is as strong a statement against warmongering as could ever be made. --Rochelle O'Gorman

The movie is 5 stars - the BluRay transfer 2 stars. It almost looks like they took the DVD transfer and just slapped it on a BluRay. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Douglas Mccall Coombe

I was wondering that, too. It's annoying, to say the least, to see that there are so few DVDs of this movie available.

Probably not for a while. The DVD is out of print, too.

Yes, sorta. They're the kind encoded in the video stream for the TV to decode. Problem: I can't figure out how to get Power DVD to show these subtitles. Windows Media Player will, but the video and sound are out of sync by ~2s (I'm only slightly deaf).
