An aspiring young physician, Robert Merivel found himself in the service of King Charles II and saves the life of a spaniel dear to the King.

The Reviews for Restoration (1995) 1080p

To this film's detractors:Reviewed byharoldnmaudeVote: 8/10

I'm not sure we saw the same movie and I'm puzzled.

This is a tremendously rich, emotional film, very true to Rose Tremain's novel, and just wonderful.

The casting is divine, and I thought Meg Ryan was fine as Catherine.

Charles II is my favorite English monarch and Sam Neill portrayed him just as I pictured him.

Robert Downey was Marivel to a T, as was David Thewliss as Pierce.

The costumes and scenery were magnificent -- from the palace to the countryside and back -- and those fabulous Spaniels running through the palace and environs was just how I'd pictured England's most enlightened monarch's place to be!

How anyone can find this movie to be anything less than a gem is beyond me.

Great costumes but little elseReviewed byillinformedgadflyVote: 5/10

If sets and costumes were all it took to make a movie, "Restoration" would certainly be considered an all-time great. Unfortunately the filmmakers did not pay as much attention to the script and the casting as they did to their lavish recreation of the court of Charles II. Behind the frills of foppery at its most extravagant, the film is little more than an old melodramatic formula: gifted man falls victim to debauchery and loses his talent, only to rediscover it after a series of tribulations. The film is so overplotted that each scene introduces a crucial dilemma, leaving little room for character development. And yet the stolid camerawork makes things feel rather slow.

"Restoration" also features the most bizarre casting of any English period drama I've ever seen. The problem: Practically nobody's English! Instead we have Sam Neill, who's clueless in the role of King Charles; you'll wonder, how exactly did this wooden, charmless man seduce all those women? Meg Ryan is at her most ridiculous as an Irish woman driven to insanity by the loss of her family; cute as Ryan is, she's an actress with an extremely limited range. Robert Downey Jr. as the hero manages an amusingly off-beat performance, but the script puts him through such extremes of emotion in such short periods of time that he's forced to underplay. I can't argue with its Academy Awards for costumes and art direction, but as a movie, "Restoration" is the equivalent of an expensive wig.

Lush, But BoringReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 4/10

Mainly a biography of a lustful doctor, "Robert Merivel ," (Robert Downey) who has his way in the king's palace for the first half of the film and then helps out the downtrodden in the second half, mainly "Katharine" (Meg Ryan).

The GOOD - Fantastic set decoration (i.e. the lush king's palace) and costuming make this a visual treat. The language is also very tame. Ian McKellen and Hugh Grant provide interesting support.

The BAD - After 50-60 minutes, this movie simply gets too boring. It desperately needed to be given some spark after an hour but it does the opposite: it drags on and on. The script certainly needed some badly-needed "restoration," shall we say? The film may look nice but it's a long two hours to sit through.....too long.
