Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Vital and sharply intelligent.
Fresh: In OUR time, the sinister turn of events at the Denmark Corporation couldn't be more apt.
Rotten: But the joke only goes so far, and even at a relatively svelte 112 minutes Hamlet comes apart in its final third.
Rotten: Embarrassingly sophomoric.
i found this movie to be quite intresting. it tries to mimic Baz Luherman's 1996 Romeo +Juliet how they mix modern day of the 90s with the 17th century language of shakespeare. if you enyoy romeo + juliet , you enjoy hamlet
