So, if you still haven't added this movie as a part of your weekend binge list, here are some tweets to help you make that decision.
#TheKing on Netflix is so beautifully and poetically written it makes me hate the ending of GOT even more. Once again, Chalamet ATE his role.— lin🧜🏾♀️ (@lindseyaddawoo) November 2, 2019
So I just finished watching The King on Netflix ... let’s begin with historical accuracy. I’ll say it’s about 1% to 2% a realistic depiction of the events of Henry V’s reign. But I don’t watch movies to learn history - rather to be entertained and I really enjoyed it! pic.twitter.com/rZBI9W89Es— Medievalists.net (@Medievalists) November 3, 2019
Robert Pattinson definitely made Netflix’s The King a lot more interesting. This guy can do anything! His french accent, the maniac smile, and the devilish laugh was weird but captivating. pic.twitter.com/DWbmttGucy— Bambi (@bamthegoddess) November 3, 2019

Bro, Robert Pattinson is perfect as a 15th century frenchman.
Very funny if you actually speak french😂
The King movie really embodies courage, honesty, greatness and love for the country. The characters live with it. @RealChalamet you’re so great to watched! Your portrayal as KING really inspires a lot of your countrymen! BRAVO! Robert Pattinson you’re legit an actor👏🏻 @netflix— RS (@dukezyke) November 1, 2019
So let me get this straight - Netflix went to the lengths to ensure Henry V has an historically accurate scar he obtained from the Battle of Shrewsbury in the promo pics, but does away with the Battle of Shrewsbury in the film by killing Hotspur up front?🤔🤔🤔 #TheKing pic.twitter.com/TSvOeI0TOC— hisdoryan 🎃 (@hisdoryan) November 1, 2019
Just finished The King @netflix. I recommend. Highly enjoyable. Timothee Chalamet delivers a gloomy haunted brutal majesty. The battle is rightfully chaotic mayhem all bloody mud and creaking armour. Excellent pic.twitter.com/yiiqLRbDRV— S Sebag Montefiore (@simonmontefiore) November 3, 2019
Timothee Chalamet and Robert Pattinson were both exquisitely amazing in Netflix’s #TheKing— danenrdnslm (@DaneAndhiswayz) November 3, 2019
It's astonishing how much original content Netflix produces to almost zero attention. I refuse to believe anyone except teens and journalists who tweet "Timothee Chalamet power bomb me into a wood chipper" sat through all of The King— Jeremy Gordon (@jeremypgordon) November 3, 2019
Watching Netflix's "The King". So: at some point a production meeting decided "Shakespeare's Henry IV 1 & 2 tell a pretty good story. All we need to do is replace the weakest element of the original, SHAKESPEARE'S FUCKING LANGUAGE, with some bantz & blather & we got something."— Adam Roberts (@arrroberts) November 2, 2019
the king on netflix is absolutely fucking epic. if you don’t have patience for the build-up you don’t deserve the payoff. incredibly well acted and a score from the heavens. bravo.— Mike Majlak (@mikemajlak) November 2, 2019
