Oscar-nominee Laurence Fishburne (the "The Matrix" trilogy, "Osmosis Jones") and Kenneth Branagh ("Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," "Rabbit-Proof Fence") star in Shakespeare's thrilling tale about the doomed marriage between a Moorish general and the daughter of a Venetian noble (Irene Jacob -- "My Life So Far," "U.S. Marshals"). Leonard Maltin praises Fishburne as "very good" in the title role, with Branagh "brilliant as the witty, scheming Iago" in this riveting, naturalistic version of the classic tragedy.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Perhaps less than the sum of its parts, Othello is still highly entertaining, and features excellent performances from Laurence Fishburne and Kenneth Branagh.
