Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Where is the audience willing to watch a classic play thrown in the path of a subway train?
Fresh: Luhrmann and his two bright angels have shaken up a 400-year-old play without losing its touching, poetic innocence.
Fresh: Sure to infuriate as much as it delights.
Fresh: Danes makes a breathtaking Juliet, merging strength and fragility into one.
Why can't I buy it?
This is a fantastic movie, and I'm so happy its on iTunes! But why can't I buy it? Why do they tease me so? Anyway, other then the fact you can't buy it, I highly advise everyone to at least watch this movie. (^o^)
Some people are going to rave over this. I can assure you that this is one weird adaptation. Sure, it's got something about some people will like -- DiCaprio -- but that's just one thing. I didn't like this film. The acting wasn't special. The writing is pathetic. The direction and cinematography were just too wacky for me to focus. All in all, bad adaptation. Rent it for the sake of knowing wether to buy it or not. This is not a film worth space on your iPod, or other portable device.
The greatest love story the world has ever known.
Baz Luhrmann is a genius!! This contemporary version of "Romeo+Juliet" is brillant.
