Movie Reviews

J. MACKENZIE | Taconic, CT USA | 01/02/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The 'troubled' hairpieces sitting on top of the young actors' heads on the cover should have told me something...

Besides having endless droning narration and, more offensively, employing 'moving cow' camera work (where the camera never stays still, in an attempt to demonstrate a kind of realism), this film has no script. Able actors, yes - but nothing else.

Look. If a producer won't spend the money, or even worse not notice that money wasn't spent to make his lead actor's hairpiece look realistic, and not like a wig bought at a Walmart's After Halloween sale, it's unlikely they will pay any more attention to their overall production, which in this case is abysmal.

Tantalizing history. Find it elsewhere."
I love History but....

"This DVD bored me. Sorry. The premise was interesting but I found as the DVD played on my attention was elsewhere. It should have been interesting as I have never heard of this story surrounding the Princes in the Tower. Read the synopsis and forget the DVD."
Fascinating perspective on the Perkins Warbeck Affair
SarahtheFussy | Fort Lauderdale, FL | 03/08/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is pretty close to a dramatized documentary. If you are looking for a movie, this isn't for you. However, if you like historical documentaries, this is a fascintating retelling of the mystery of the Princes in the Tower and what became of the younger prince, Richard, who later emerged as the pretender to the throne.

Most of the story unfolds as a re-enactment of a supposed interrogation of Richard IV by the Tudors, specifically Margaret Beaufort and company.

This DVD would be more interesting to people very well versed in the War of the Roses and Henry VII's reign. If you aren't familiar with Henry VII's reign and the Perkins Warbeck affair, you might not enjoy it that much."
Princes in the Tower

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This period movie revealed information to me of which I was unaware despite having been taught the history of England at school.

I thought it was well done and well acted and will keep it in my collection to watch again."
