George K. from COLCHESTER, CT
Reviewed on 12/20/2014...
An interesting film for Shakespeare lovers. But it's nowhere near as engaging as the Kenneth Branagh interpretation from 1993.

The cast is subdued, losing much of the Branagh version's broad humor.

Lively and bright it's not, and the dissipation (major emphasis on drinking) of this movie's society and the black and white filming don't do the script any favors.

The language is not hard to understand for a modern audience, but I'd suggest using subtitles, anyhow.

If you already like Shakespeare and are interested in different presentations of his work, see this movie. If you're lukewarm or less, put this on the back burner until you've seen Branagh, Emma Thompson, Denzel Washington, and Michael Keaton laugh it up brilliantly in cheerful color.
