Hamlet Reviews

    It's a real shame that they've cut/shortened the play, because other than that, it's really stunning. I was very surprised at how well-put-together and intense it was.

    Greatest Hamlet ever. And if you don't think so, apparently you haven't read Shakespeare.

    I once watched this movie at school in English class in the ninth grade and I didn't understand anything that was going on throughout the whole entire film. I was even falling asleep during the movie because it was just so boring. It's not a bad movie, it's just a boring movie. At least the acting performances were good.

    Mel Gibson should do Shakespeare more often. He's fantastic as Hamlet.

    One of the best versions of Shakespeare's great tragedy ever filmed. Zeffirelli has assembled a uniformly brilliant cast and directs with economy and pace. The big surprise is how good Gibson is, playing with real intelligence and pain (and a faultless English accent). But Bates, Bonham Carter, Scofield et al match him. Highly recommended. Fine Ennio Morricone score too.

    Rating: 77% Although it is hard to follow most of the time, Mel Gibson's charismatic performance and classic story make this a must-see for many.

    Have to say that Gibson is very very good in this version. After the joke Braveheart and other ridiculous things he's done, this shows what a good actor he can be when he tries. The remake of Mutiny on the Bounty is another Gibson showcase that proves it. He CAN act and be great. When he tries.
