 A fine film that brings history to life

| | See all Motorhead's reviews (25)

I've just written a review for the similarly themed 2003 film 'To Kill a King' and am very surprised there is no review for 'Cromwell' so here is my take.

I remember doing the English civil war at school and being bored to tears by it. This film actually not only makes it interesting but makes you realise just how significant the event was. Richard Harris brings his own gravitas to the role although Cromwell was a notoriously ugly and brutish man, much more like Tim Roth's portrayal in the 2003 film.

There is a good sense of scale involved here. We see the key battles being fought (and yes that is a very young Timothy Dalton as Rupert) and the incredible obstinance of the King (played with huge dignity by Alec Guinness). Irishman Harris may have seemed an odd choice for the role but he does it with conviction and belief. This film portrays Cromwell as a man who knows that he must do some terrible things for the greater good of the country, and whether or not there is any truth in that is another matter, but Harris portrays him as a tortured soul driven by circumstances and the need for a greater good.

A solid supporting cast also help to bring this film to life. The politics and maybe historical accuracy may not always be correct but the fine cast, direction and script make this a worthy, if slightly long, film to watch.

 Great film

This film is a good watch the only probly i have is that the parlimentarians won.

The discription is spot on with this being a British civil war & not an english one as scots,irish & welsh royalist against the parlimentarian english & scots covenanters.

 English Civil War Epic

Its a classic with some great acting by Richard Harris and Alec Guinness, but play.com should look at rewriting their description as there hasnt been a 'British' Civil War
