Wes S (nl) wrote: A really cheap, violent, and stupid Terminator ripoff. The fact that this movie was made 9 years before 1999 is kind of funny, since nothing like that has happened in said year. The characters are annoying and dumb, and the effects are lacking. Slow pacing and a boring plot. The film tries to be something that it's not.
Stuart K (fr) wrote: Based upon the 1959 play of the same name by French playwright Jean Anouilh, which was optioned by producer Hal B. Wallis (True Grit (1969)), and directed by Peter Glenville (Hotel Paradiso (1966) and The Comedians (1967)), this is a power character drama which put two of the most enigmatic actors of the time together on screen. It makes for a riveting period piece that is beautifully put together. Set between 1160 and 1170, it focuses on the friendship between Saxon protg Thomas Becket (Richard Burton) and King Henry II (Peter O'Toole). When Henry makes Becket his Lord Chancellor, it becomes a decision he soon comes to regret, and after falling out with Theodore of Bec, the Archbishop of Canterbury (Felix Aylmer), Henry appoints Becket as the new Archbishop of Canterbury, but after Becket excommunicates Lord Gilbert (Donald Wolfit) over the murder of a priest for misdemeanors. Henry completely loses it, and Becket escapes to France, where he goes to French King Louis VII (John Gielgud), where they discuss what Becket's next move should be. It's a well made film, maybe a little overlong for it's own good, but it benefits from lush cinematography by Geoffrey Unsworth, but it's worth it for the battle of wills at the heart of the film played out by Burton and O'Toole, who play off each other brilliantly. O'Toole reprised King Henry II for The Lion in Winter (1968).

Tony P (mx) wrote: Ken Loach bores the audience with yet more stories of social woes in northern England.This time the film follows a down on his look guy played by Bruce Jones (famous as Les Battersby in Coronation Street) struggling to raise the funds for his beloved daughter's Catholic Church Communion dress.He resorts to any old job he can get some legal some illegal and eventually succombs to the local Mancunian loan shark.What makes me cringe with these Loach films are that everyone is made out to be broke yet the evil Tories are living in comfort. Total Communist bull as a Conservative Club caretaker says in the film.
