ReviewSource At-A-Glance Film Reviews
Review A Man For All Seasons is a wonderfully well-written story. Ostensibly it is about the reformation of the church in England during the time of King Henry VIII. Really, it's about the struggle of a man to hold by his principles in increasingly adverse times...this same story occurs time and again throughout history, throughout the world. The faces, the societies, and the principles under contention all change, but even the least principled of us all comes upon moments when we are faced with the decision to stand by unpopular beliefs or succumb to the threat of adversity. A Man For All Seasons tells this story -- hopefully a more extreme version of it than most of us will ever have to face -- with remarkable eloquence, insight, and stellar performances.

Review A Man for All Seasons is a handsome production. In other words, it is staid, stern, plodding, and precise, with about as much passion as your 11th-grade history textbook...The film looks great, and the performances are fine, including Leo McKern as a kind of grand inquisitor and John Hurt as his toady, and Orson Welles as the oily Cardinal Wolsey. But somehow the movie never gelled for me. Much of the plot revolves around debates about the intricacies of church law and secular law, which are hard to make interesting...A Man for All Seasons is preaching to the choir -- if you're in the choir, you may find it a lot more enjoyable that I did.
