yea. i've watched it as well. I liked the original methods of this doctor. besides Colin Firth, Helena Bohnam Carter (i adore her talent) and Geoffrey Rush make it deserving attention. also i like the way it was made, i mean the main heroes on the background.
good movie.

I decided to see the movie after Colin Firth talked about it on Inside the Actor's Studio. I liked both Firth's and Rush's performances and enjoyed the movie as a whole.

I finally saw it despite the numerous people badgering me to see it for months prior.
I thought it was very well done, and most certainly worthy of the Oscars it was awarded.

Upon the arrangement of Queen Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter), The King’s Speech center’s around Bertie (Colin Firth) and the unlikely friendship he forms with his speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush) as together the two mechanically try to rid—through an unorthodox course of treatment and various exercises—Bertie of a stammer in which he has been acquainted with all his life.

It is not until the death of King George V (Michael Gambon), his father, the abdication of the scandalous King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce), his brother, that Bertie is crowned King George VI of Britian in a time when a nation is desperate for a leader.

As Germany’s troops failed to abandon Poland, it is such that Great Britain declared war upon Hitler’s regieme. Now, Bertie is to recollect all his sessions of therapy and deliver a war-time speech to inspire his great nation and unite them for the potential darkness that await in the shadows of the days ahead.

Colin Firth’s quintessential performance as King George VI is undoubtedly the performance of his career. His poignant reenactment of King George’s stammer adorns the film and intelligibly captures, with high proficiency, the agony and terror of a man afraid of his own voice. Admittedly, the entire supporting ensemble is splendid. Though of them, it is Geoffrey Rush who truly is remarkable as the unorthodox, quick-witted, Lionel Logue.

Danny Cohen’s cinematography breathes divinity, class, and under the masterful direction of Tom Hooper, the whole of The King’s Speech is seen through a stylish eye in which enriches the film’s eloquence to an articulate grandeur. Not a instant is idly wasted here from actor or environment as even each set piece, in itself, delivers a performance of unimaginable heart.

At last, Alexandre Desplat’s original minimalistic score plays expertly against Ludwig van Beethoven’s finest symphony and concerto setting a most unnerving melancholy to the scene in which it tolls.

With its stylistic direction, haunting score, and enthralling performances, The King’s Speech is a tremendously developed piece of cinema which remains consistently gripping from its opening scene where one’s attention is first captured.

Yes, I watched it for the first time on Monday and I love it. It's a masterpiece for those who can appreciate a slower paced movie, definitely Colin Firth's best acting yet.
