Full movie description "The Hollow Crown Henry V":Hal is now a responsible monarch as Henry V, his rejection of Falstaff hastening the latter's death. Told by courtiers that,through Edward III, he has a claim to the French throne he makes overtures to the Dauphin but is sent a humiliating present of tennis balls. He prepares an expeditionary force to cross the Channel and take the throne, capturing the town of Harfleur during a surprise nocturnal raid following an inspirational speech. Though merciful to its inhabitants, Henry allows soldier Bardolph to be hung for looting. After another truce is turned down by the French, Henry prepares for the pitched battle of Agincourt, wandering the camp in disguise on its eve to gauge opinion of him. The battle is won with minimal English losses and the French king, whose daughter Henry marries, declares him to be his successor. However, an end title shows that Henry dies of dysentery at the age of thirty-five and we are told that his son Henry VI loses possession of France.
Reviews of the The Hollow Crown Henry VIn terms of cinema Henry V is well known of Shakespeare's play because it involves rousing battle sequences and an English victory.
There have been two grand films one with Laurence Oliver as actor and director followed four decades later by Kenneth Branagh as actor and director.
Tom Hiddleston stars as Henry V in this television adaptation which has a smaller budget compared to a feature film and therefore despite the location shooting and CGI it is done in a smaller scale as you can not by the battle scenes.
We have seen Prince Hal in the previous plays of Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 where he was seen more as a roguish and callow youth. Now as king he has grown up to lead his men and country helped by the advice given by his late father, a good victory in war such as in France will get people to flock by his side and earn their respect. In that respect Henry V is courting a war with France and leaving behind those people who messed around in his youth, we see one of them hung for looting a church.
Henry V is a play within a play. The Branagh/Olivier film versions has a chorus that appears on screen that leads to some of the events. Here John Hurt narrates although he makes a brief appearance at the end.
As for Hiddleston, Henry V he makes a good fist of role but I felt that some of the more famous text was rushed through and some of the battle action was just too small scale even though it is unfair to compare it with the movie versions.
It is still an enjoyable play and more accessible for the ordinary viewer.
