Hamlet (2000) Movie Review Summary

Actors: Ethan Hawke, Julia Stiles, Kyle MacLachlan

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Hamlet (2000)

Modernized version of one Shakespeare's great plays has some good qualitites to it such as some tremendous acting on the part of Hawke as Hamlet and on Stiles as Ophelia. But the film fails due to some things that could not be modernized. Overall a good attempt.
