There's nothing embarrassing about Zeffirelli's brisk new version, nor anything particularly remarkable; it's an entirely credible, middle-of-the-road production.
Mel Gibson's 1990 version strives for realism, with remarkably accurate medieval sets and costumes, and little in the way of a music score.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
With Hamlet, Zeffirelli is back in top form with a lush, rich, very well-acted piece.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The style of Franco Zeffirelli's Hamlet, with Mel Gibson in the title role, is robust and physical and -- don't take this the wrong way -- upbeat.
