BBFC Ratings info
HENRY V is a 1989 adaptation of Shakespeare's history play, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh. Violence: A scene depicting the Battle of Agincourt features sustained, moderate violence with combatants being struck by swords, spears and lances, and engaging in hand-to-hand fighting during which a man's neck is broken. The chaotic action does not dwell on the details of the violence, or the bloody injury sustained by the combatants, in a scene intended to show the horrors of war. There are also images of blood and injury in the aftermath of the battle. In another scene, a man is executed by hanging with sight of him struggling before he dies. There is also mild bad language which includes uses of 'damn'd' and 'bastard', and a reference to 'the whore of Babylon'. There are also mild sex references.

Sex & Nudity
none
Sex & Nudity Reason
Suggested re-rating: PG for mild battle violence throughout There is no sex or nudity in this film whatsoever. Except for some very brief violence, this film is entirely suitable for family viewing and classroom usage.

Violence & Gore
moderate
Violence & Gore Reason
There are two very brief battle scenes; practically no blood and not graphic PG level violence; the PG-13 rating is excessive. It should be PG. The first battle scene depicts explosions in the background and soldiers rushing by with swords drawn, but no actual violence or death is ever actually visible in this scene at all. The second battle scene shows more actual violence, but it also is not very gory. People are seen fighting with swords and firing arrows. Men are seen being stabbed and drowned during combat. During the second battle scene, there is a brief shot that shows a mortally wounded man with copious amounts of blood pouring from his mouth in slow-motion. This is the only gore in the movie, and it is only a split second long. It is reported that the French army has murdered all of the English pages. These children are briefly shown lying dead with some blood on them. This is more sad than it is violent. A man is executed by hanging for violating the law. Mildly disturbing but brief.

Profanity
mild
Profanity Reason
No profanity whatsoever. Every word is taken verbatim from Shakespeare's play.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
mild
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
Two people are seen drunk in a tavern. This is not condoned, however.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
moderate
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Suggested re-rating: PG for mild battle violence throughout Short medieval battle scenes. Intense, but not overly disturbing or graphic in any way. Despite a very brief scene where a man is executed by hanging and a short (albeit somewhat intense) battle scene at the end, the film overall is not particularly frightening or disturbing. The PG-13 rating the film received is probably overkill; there is nothing in this film that goes much beyond PG-level violence. It is an otherwise entirely wholesome and family friendly film.
