Movie Info

A lunatic called the Duke (Derek Jacobi) runs Liverpool, England, one of the only British cities still habitable in a land devastated by man's recklessness and Mother Nature's wrath. He murders at will, but his ways are about to catch up with him. Biding his time since the Duke killed his wife several years earlier, Vindici (Christopher Eccleston) has decided that he's ready to get back at his enemy, and, as the Duke will soon learn, Vindici isn't the type to be intimidated or outsmarted.

Critic Reviews for Revengers Tragedy

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • Probably destined to join Cox's other films (Sid and Nancy, Repo Man) as a cult favorite.

    September 5, 2003 | Rating: 3/4
  • A gloriously over-the-top revenge comedy-drama that could attract a cult following.

    February 25, 2003
  • Ultimately annoys as much as it exhilarates.

  • Cox is laughing and enjoying all the twisted ridiculousness of it all.

    September 17, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Could use a few things -- like, I dunno, maybe life, skill, comprehension and the wisdom of knowing that jokes and a sense of humour are not the same thing.

Audience Reviews for Revengers Tragedy

  • Feb 28, 2005
    [font=Century Gothic][color=darkred]"Revengers Tragedy" is a movie based on the 17th century play by Thomas Middleton. In this version, it is updated to Liverpool in the near future where Vendici(Christopher Eccleston) is returning after a period of absence. He is back to swear vengeance against The Duke(Derek Jacobi, who does not have a lot to do), after he killed Vendici's bride in retaliation for her not wanting to have sex with him.(A good deal of this movie is taken up with men defending the honor of women. I can understand this happening in the 17th century but it's not likely for the present or anytime in the near future.) Other faults include the movie missing chances to have anything to say about 1) the nature of revenge and 2) the class structure.(The Duke is evil but Lord Antonio seems like a pretty alright guy.) But it is imaginatively staged with computer effects and is well acted especially by Christopher Eccleston and Eddie Izzard.[/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#8b0000][/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=darkslateblue]"Prick Up Your Ears" is based on the lives and tempestual relationship of playwright Joe Orton(Gary Oldman) and Kenneth Halliwell(Alfred Molina). Orton's role in life seemed to be wreaking playful havoc in the straitlaced society of 50's and 60's Britain, from defacing library books to anonymous sex in lavatories. The movie is witty and engaging. It gives great insight into the characters and their love for each other. Both Oldman and Molina do a great job. And it's a joy watching Wallace Shawn and Vanessa Redgrave act together.[/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=darkslateblue][/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=darkslateblue](Very strange literary note: Alfred Molina invokes T.S. Eliot in "Prick Up Your Ears." He would do so again in "Spider Man 2.") [/color][/font]
