Fresh: Producer-director Fred Zinnemann has blended all filmmaking elements into an excellent, handsome and stirring film version of A Man For All Seasons.
Rotten: There's more than a little of the school pageant in the rhythm of the movie: Though it's all neater than our school drama coaches could make it, the figures group and say their assigned lines and move on.
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.

sir thomas more is an idiot
sir thomas more didnt sign a letter so the king could divorce his wife because allegedly it was against his religious beliefs. Yet he did this out of vanity risking the lives of his entire family, in the very least leaving them homeless and without a provider in order not to contradict his faith through a technicality. This man wanted to be a martyr and this film is a glorification of mr mores stand against the kings marriage as if he were some sort of hero when in fact he is one of the most egotistical and vain men in history.
