"...Director Paul Reisman sets up a multitude of hilarious situations, too numerous to catalog here. Standouts include the attempt of French princess Katherine (Weir) to learn English from her ASL-speaking attendant Alice (Johnson-Pasqua) and a literal slapstick fight among a couple of characters in which one continues to act out being whacked while the other stops whacking and watches. Reisman keeps the pace flowing, maintaining a nice balance between the central plotline involving Henry’s leadership in a successful military campaign and the stories of the officers and common soldiers who follow in the king’s wake."

"...Beneath many tragedies there is dark comedy, and Faction of Fools has explored that comedy in Shakespeare’s tragedies to surprisingly good effect. But there are some plays — including this one, which is less a play than a call to remember all that was deemed honorable in the English character — which are simply not suited for comic treatment. Despite the company’s obvious skills, Faction of Fools has come a cropper with this one."
