One of the 5 best of all time

A masterpiece. Whether you want to watch it for the acting, the costumes, the scenery, or the ideas, this movie is one of the all time great movies. This movie is one of a few that both makes you think while it entertains you. Not too many movies can claim to do both. The religious, ethical, legal, and philosophical ideas expressed in this movie will challenge you. You must see and buy this movie. It is appropriate for young adults and adults. A great movie for teenagers to wathc with parents.

Excellent movie!!!

This movie is as fresh and inspiring as it was when it was first released...and will be for generations to come because the topic is a timeless one. Don't anyone listen to the review from "enemyofrome." His moniker will tell you everything you need to know about him. And besides, if he had done his homework before posting that excuse for a review, he'd have realized how unjust his words actually are. Instead, you get the Catholic-bashing, muddle-headed remarks that are typical of "enemies of Rome." Yeah, buddy...go back and watch "Kinky Boots" again...yeah, THERE's a healthy movie for ya. (...And shame on iTunes for allowing his review through.)

Omnium Horarum

A Timeless Masterpiece of A Great Man Excellently Portrayed by A Most Gifted & Worthy Actor to Play the Part, namely, Paul Scofield. It's no wonder why this film won several Academy Awards and continues to serve as Inspiration even to younger generations devoted to deeply held principles.
