I agree with much of your assessment, although I thought initially Rhys-Meyers portrayed the young Henry well. Early on they incorporated his multi-faceted intelligence and charisma, so my initial reaction (to the character as well as the eye-candy) was positive. My problem is that they didn't build on that and the character doesn't age or grow in complexity (or in size), or truly display his life of egregious excess on all fronts. He now comes across as shallow and one-dimensional and downright boring. I don't get that since, for both writers and the actor, staying true to the reality of the man would be much more interesting dramatically.

I have to add, though that Sarah Bolger as Mary has delighted me from the beginning and continues to do so. I wish she got more screen time, but in her relatively short scenes she has managed to pack in a truly three-dimensional character.
