"Coriolanus" is a triumph.

Slathered in blood, covered with scars and glowering with a predator's gaze, Ralph Fiennes makes a fierce and impressive Caius Martius Coriolanus.

The blend of modern and Elizabethan is what works

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

In his directorial debut, (Ralph) Fiennes is quite sharp, shooting the battle scenes as if the cinematographers were embedded with his troops and using television broadcasts as a way to advance the story.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

By combining selective fragments of the text with populist cultural references and by using visually bold cinematic and TV news techniques, "Coriolanus" director and star Ralph Fiennes has created a thinking person's action thriller.

Antagony & Ecstasy

This modernisation actually works... for how well it grounds Shakespeare's drama in an easily understood modern-dress context.

It may be 400 years since Shakespeare penned this work but the story feels just as relevant today with its exploration of war and politics.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Expertly balancing his performance between quiet regret, self-destructive arrogance and howling stubbornness, Fiennes takes center stage without making the role a vanity project.

It's all very unnerving, modern and yet veins-in-the-teeth visceral.

[Coriolanus] makes some questionably antiquated statements about class, but nevertheless captivates.

As a portrait of modern warfare, politics and propaganda, "Coriolanus" is intriguing, even if the gritty action sequences don't quite measure up to the realism of "The Hurt Locker."

Cinema Autopsy

Fiennes's adaptation is a reflection of spin, media influence in public debate, the cult of personality and the glorification of war.

Though I understand why they dare not tamper with Shakespeare's brilliant lines, it feels more and more like an unnatural gimmick when contrasted with the contemporary setting.

March 5, 2012

A portrait of the birth of a fascist leader, Shakespeare's play sets his will to power in direct opposition to the people of Rome and their right to rule themselves. In modernizing the setting, Fiennes only makes the comparison more relevant.

Andrew L. Urban
Urban Cinefile

This is a blood-and-gutsy adaptation of a bloody and gut-wrenching tragedy by Shakespeare.. Director and co-star Fiennes has chiseled the play into a contemporary setting, not unlike Baz Luhrmann did with Romeo + Juliet, and just about as inventively

Immensely entertaining, Coriolanus is chock-full o' gore and the contemporary trappings of a man and a land divided, both from without and from within.

Ralph Fiennes turns one of Shakespeare's least-loved plays into a slashing, muscular but uneven modern drama in his film-directing debut.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Alternating between whispered regrets and outraged howls - again, seeming to suggest there are two people within him - Fiennes provides the film with a magnetic center.

[though Ralph Fiennes] handles himself quite well behind the camera, he took on a perhaps too ambitious a project for the first time out the gate.

A Balkanized 'Hurt Locker,' Ralph Fiennes' 'Coriolanus' is a timely, aptly fierce, IED-rigged adaptation of the Shakespeare tragedy
