Critic Reviews for Hamlet
Intelligent, well-acted, all-American version of the Shakespeare tragedy.
Although the movies haven't lacked for Hamlets recently, Ethan Hawke and Kenneth Branagh being the latest stars to have weighed in, Mr. Scott's is something that must be seen.
This version of the tale is far from being the first, last, best or worst. Shakespeare junkies should make their own decisions about pursuing this take, heeding advice from the man himself, 'to thine own self be true.'
Audience Reviews for Hamlet
(Presentation) (First Viewing, 1st Scott film) Hallmark and Shakespeare... an odd pairing, to say the least. Campbell Scott (who both starred and directed) makes a fine Hamlet, but everything else is very TV movie quality, including the style, the editing, and the acting of the supporting characters. And at three hours long... well, I was intensely wishing I was watching the 2000 theatrical version of Shakespeare's classic play, starring Ethan Hawke (which I have not seen).
