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

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

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).
