Editorial Reviews

From executive producer Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) comes a stunning adaptation of four of Shakespeare’s most celebrated history plays: Richard II, Henry IV (Part 1 and Part 2), and Henry V. Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons (The Borgias), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) in his award-winning role as Richard II star in this epic tale of three kings, their battle for survival, and the rise and fall of a dynasty.

3.0 out of 5 stars So many good actors, so much waste April 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
There are many great things to recommend in this series. First, most of the main actors are quite good and they are giving it their all. However, there are too many choices made by the directors that just undercut the drama at every turn. Why do we need monologues in voiceover? Wasn't that bad enough when Oliver did it with Hamlet? How come Prince Hal needs to give the Saint Cripian day speech as if he's annoying people at a board meeting? Why does the DRAMA music have to come up in every important scene, practically announcing that the director doesn't trust the actors to deliver the goods?

There are also unprepared actors in the important roles. Does Hotspur have to walk around in leather pants like a high school actor that doesn't quite know what to do with his hands?

There are good bits. Falstaff is a great part for any actor, but there are too many problems to fully recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB, SHAKESPEARE! May 4, 2014
Verified Purchase
If you're interesting in seeing superb interpretations of this set of plays,
this is for you. And, particularly exceptional is the opportunity to see
some of the same actors carry their roles through the series.

The directors gave us some exceptional interpretations and brought the
stage plays vividly to life. A collectors series for anyone serious about
Shakespeare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant April 29, 2014
By tilla

Brilliant casting and supurb direction + gorgeous country and great action scenes = a masterpiece. Yes, I admit it - I'm a total Hiddleston fangirl and have been ever since seeing the boy in Thor. That does *not* in the least (well, maybe it does a little) influence this review. The entire cast (even so-called 'bit' players) of all four plays performs brilliantly. The writing (Shakespeare, no less) is exquisite. The direction is flawless.

This is entertainment at its educational best - or vice versa. I studied Shakespeare in school (mostly the comedies, though) and wish we'd had something like this to bring the text to life. This would have been great in my British History classes, too, except for the fact half the cast and two of the directors probably hadn't even finished pre-school yet.

Absolutely wonderful. If there was a way to give it more than 5 stars, I would.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy handed words get lighter April 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
Attn: High School English and Theatre teachers, This series will help your students to understand the bard a little better. The conversations give a familiarity to the emotions which help you empathize and see where the character is at better than a modern play. Still in the original vernacular but they bring back the humanity of each play for viewers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, but no Blu-ray? April 27, 2014
Loved the series and would have paid more if it were available on Blu-ray. Hopefully this error will be fixed on the next series.

English subtitles or SDH
I was wondering the same. According to the PBS online store (shoppbs [dot] org), there are English subtitles.
