    I have no idea why audiences and critics alike were so hard on this one because conceptually and artistically it is pretty f**king awesome. Brilliantly acted, flawlessly directed, and admirably devoid of gratuitous violence.

    Horrendous, going by the title Anarchy Ride or Die, in the UK, trying to rip off the obvious Sons of Anarchy as also about bikers, but bikers in Shakespearean english. Lasted 8 minutes, before turning off

    Un très mauvais film à l'histoire un peu décousue avec des dialogues du moyen-âge mais qui se déroule de nos jours. A ÉVITER

    adapted Shakespeare (i.e. Oxford) keeping the language feels much too odd. It is more an explanation of the play than a film on its own. Pretty good explanation though. Shakespeare (Oxford) wasn't all that subtil and his story were crazy. Probably like the people in the english court.

    Reviewed as a Shakespeare version, this is so-so. Reviewed as an attempt by Hollywood to produce a modern take take on one of the most complex Shakespearean plot lines, this was fairly successful.

    There are actors that are just meant to do Shakespeare. But then there are actors that are not meant to do Shakespeare. This is an example of who shouldn't do Shakespeare with the exceptions of Ed Harris and John Leguizamo who has proved he can do it in Romeo + Juliet in 1996. Ethan Hawke is ok but he is a little awkward with the dialogue given to him. The worst here is Dakota Johnson. If it weren't for her excellent performance in Black Mass, I don't think I could believe she had a grain of talent from her parents judging her performance from this and Fifty Shades of Grey. Milla Jovoitch should not purse a career in singing with her awful scene in this movie where she had to sing. The idea of needing to modernize Shakespeare just needs to die unless you are Baz Luhrmann and have a specific vision that can work with modernizing Shakespeare. Really really terrible movie
