    History portrayed as pure drama

    Isn't it interesting how a movie this old about events long passed can seemingly incite such feverent emotions in the reviewers? That alone should tell you that this is indeed an excellent film! It must be realized that history is ALWAYS broader and more complicated than any film or play can portray. The nature of historical films is to give us a feel for the period and an appreciation for the people and the events of their times. On that scale I believe this is one of the most outstanding historical films ever made. I wholeheartedly recommend it. The fact that the mere mention of Cromwell's name still gets some folks upset, and that this film's chief negative criticism seems to be that Cromwell is not portrayed according to the modern politically correct stereotype insisted upon by his detractors is perhaps one of the best reasons to buy this film and watch it again and again. He was truely a man who changed history and this film will give you an appreciation for the strength of his character, whether or not you agree with everything he did.

    Wonderful Portrayal of this Godly man!

    Don't listen to the other reviews! This move does a wonderful job in capturing the heart of this Godly man who wrestled with his conscience in seeking the Lord's will. The movie does a splendid job in capturing the spirit of Cromwell... who was a man seeking to glorify God and not himself. It is true that some liberties have been taken with the battle scenes... but it is simply impossible to accurately portray every last detail. Most of the dialogue that is used for Cromwell in the movie is 100% accurate word for word. I would highly recommend this movie for anyone who seeks to learn more about this Godly man. I for one thanked God for his faithful service for the Lord... and wished there were more movies like 'Cromwell' for God's people to see.

    Cromwell

    This is excellent movie, it gives a part of english
    history, but remember it is a movie. Being from
    an english background, it will give one a look
    into their history, that will take you to another
    step to find out more about their history.

    Story of the Father of England

    Oliver Cromwell was the driving force behind the government in England as it is today. It took a Civil War and the death of a king to make it so This film details the fighting of that war, the causes behind it and the outcome. Richard Harris is excellent as Cromwell and in his face you can see the disgust he has for the king. His stand against oppression made him a hero and one that is still venerated today.
