Much credit is due to Radford for creating such a faithful, engrossing adaptation ... but when working with source material like this, it's a lot harder to go wrong.

There's no Josh Hartnett, zanily recast high school setting or characters dropping acid in sight. And yet there's still a missing vibrancy and currency...

Visually, Radford's film is as sensuous as Shakespeare's language, and despite being pared down severely for the syntax of film, it's an effective retelling.

Radford, Irons, and Pacino do justice to Shakespeare's work by any critical standard.

Don't miss The Merchant of Venice for Al Pacino's great scenery-chewing performance and bold expression of a great moral conflict.
