Kirk Honeycutt The uncommon touch
Pete Hammond The King's Speech is a magnificent movie treat, one of the very best pictures of the year and one so engaging and enlightening that it just may become a box office surprise once word of mouth hits the street.

Roger Ebert At the end, what we have here is a superior historical drama and a powerful personal one. And two opposites who remain friends for the rest of their lives.
Kieran Grant Firth carries the day with his impassioned and intuitive read on a rather remote historical figure.

Peter Travers A crowning achievement powered by a dream cast.
C. Fuchs While it's always nice to have Oscar caliber films one can admire and appreciate, it's even better when you can throw in that they entertain and even move viewers. That's the case here.
