Conclusion: 2/5
I have to say that I didn’t think much of Robert Pattinson’s performance. I thought it was bordering on the brink of silliness. I couldn’t take his performance seriously. Timothee Chalamet can do so much better than this and I thought that this wasn’t the right role for him. All the characters existed in real life, except for John Falstaff. It was Lincoln Cathedral which played Westminster Abbey for the coronation sequence. A film made for Netflix and this is where it should stay.
