Powerful words from THE giant of the 20th century!
Verified purchase
Gary Saderup is wonderful as Churchill! I’ve heard some of churchill’s speeches and he does a fabulous job “channeling” Churchill. All of his most iconic speeches are given and wow! They make the hair on the back of my neck stand up! What an orator and writer. He was a giant and we owe the victory in WWII to his absolute refusal to give or give up. This is so worth watching!

What a marvelous performance. It's unfortunate that we will always have those among us who like to vilify our past, western democracies' past, in anyway they can. However, hopefully future generations will continue to report that this was indeed England's finest hour.

Not very engaging
Verified purchase
I am a consummate Churchill fanatic but I didn't find this very compelling. It was slow, unintriguing and generally not very engaging. This is essentially a one man show but I didn't find the actor very convincing or believable. This was one of my least favorite Churchill movies.

A tour de force
Verified purchase
Gary Saderup is amazing in this one-man show. The show is augmented by still photos that capture 1939-1940, with a few from WWI. Some of the spoken lines are from familiar Churchill speeches but many are from Churchill's writings and recollections of events. This is definitely worth watching!

When there's a glaring historical error in the first 5 mins, you might want to turn it off.

Can't tell you how well the acting is, I turned it off after about two minutes when "Churchill" claimed a pilot who died in 1921 South Africa, died in the Battle of Britain. Didn't think there was much point in watching more.

It was fun and interesting to follow Sir. Winston at key moments in the Battle of Britain and the Blitz.

Brilliant! Wrong XRay Material Though - Meant for Another Film.
Verified purchase
I agree with the other reviewers here on how splendid a performance this was - not easy to do with such an iconic figure so often ably played by England's finest actors. One goof though is the X-Ray material meant to accompany and illuminate this film. It's the wrong material and is meant for another film entirely.
