Prepare yourself for a masterpiece. Branagh gives an amazing performance, as does most of the cast. This Hamlet is the gold standard!
Don’t be put off by the 4 hour runtime. This is the greatest Shakespeare adaptation ever because it treats its source material with respect.
This “every single line” version is opulent and a bit of a mess, but it was the first I ever saw and I still adore it.
Extravagant, colorful, and beautifully shot vision of Hamlet. Branagh at his best. Watch the full, unabridged version, the only that exists.
Fairly similar to the og play and really captures his insanity
Beautifully brilliant.The acting,the set and everything is so good.
Epic and emotional story. Branagh and the rest of the cast are excellent
No vampires which sucks and I wish hamlet had a funny German accent. I would’ve enjoyed the movie a lot more if that were the case.
Stuffy and pretty slow. Some great shots and fine acting, fans of theater will probably get more out of this
Storytelling has evolved away from endless olde english dia-/monologues for good reason. RIP Shakespeare. Can't watch this.
Shakespeare purists might complain, but this is a lavish production, uncut, well acted. You need to know the play to last 220 minutes.
Long, but the best acted and shot hamlet film possibly ever. The best Shakespeare movie. Brilliant film.
The play is fantastic enough that adapting it word for word allows for Branagh to overcome his major directing limitations.
Branagh at it again with the most loyal and IMO best Hamlet adaptations. For lovers of shakespear this is a delight.
Good adaptation and good performances, set design and cinematography but it just drags a little bit
A bit worthy and too long. But otherwise great.
Simply a straight adaptation of Hamlet done to perfection.
Veeerrry long, but very good, too. If you don’t wanna read it, this is the one to watch.
A good, straightforward screen adaptation of the Shakespeare classic.
Probably the best pure Shakespeare adaption ever put to film.
