The reviews I read complain that the movie is pretty careless with the truth so in a word, I don't think its too historically accurate.

Its interesting when the first Elizabeth film came out, the reviews were not overwhelmingly positive. Some critics said the film was just like the Godfather except it was set in Renaissance England.

But now they're all saying how great the first movie was.

I thought the first movie was good but it wasn't outstanding.

Of the movies that had Elizabeth I as a character, my favorite was Orlando.

Lovely... I hope it isn't as bad as Gladiator if it is I'll walk out.

I'm thinking about seeing this movie tonight, if not, then I will definitely see it on Sunday.

Has anyone else seen it? I haven't heard much about since it first came out a couple of weeks ago. Since then I haven't seen any commericals advertising the movie nor have I heard anyone discuss the movie on other forums.

Did the movie fade into oblivion? Did the studio give up on the film already? What are your thoughts?

Well I Loved the movie but don't quote me because I am a great fan of Cate Blanchett and I love all her movies no matter what! Imo, she is one of the very few actresses today with actual acting talent and gracefullness!

About the movie itself, I thought the costumes and scenery were beautiful! The acting was always good throughout the entire movie ( I loved the part when Mary Stuart is executed. It was dramatic and very intense). I adore this kind of movies

I've just seen the first one which I loved so I'll be sure to see the sequel. The first one really did showcase the best of British.

I did not like this film at all even though I loved the first one. It was too chick flick (forgive the vulgar expression) despite the superb acting skills of both Cate and Clive. I was not surprise that it was not as good as the first, sequels seldom are.

The Whitehall Palace set of "Elizabeth I" was constructed to scale from the original plans.

I completely agree. I got it in the bargain basket at a Blockbuster video store and paid $5, which was about all it was worth.

Yes I agree it was a pale shade compared to the first Elizabeth movie which I really liked.Coincidentally I got both of them together on a dvd boxset,but have the Golden Age has yet to be opened!
