All the King's Men (2006)

Recommended Posts

Sean Penn, Kate Winslet, Anthony Hopkins and Jude Law among others star in the 2006 remake of the 1949 Best Picture winner, All the King's Men.


It was originally going to be a major Oscar contender like the original, but then the reviews came out and they were scathing to say the least. Criticisms include Penn chewing too much scenery, an absence of political insight, and a lack of narrative cohesiveness. Filmed on a budget of $55 million, it made only $9 million worldwide, causing a huge blow to the cast and crew, most particularly its writer/director Steven Zaillian, who admitted that he was completely stunned by the overall results of the movie.
