The sheer look and passion of the film are kind of amazing. It’s one of those films that looks and sounds so beautiful on DVD that I kind of ache to imagine what it looks like cinematically or at least on Blu-Ray. Branagh is effortlessly magnetic in this, giving power and emotion to scenes which should be rendered stoic by their cultural cache. He also delights in the wordplay of the character, ... read more

Since I never *really* read the play in print, I'm glad, especially glad, that I got to see the film version. They did a very good job with it, and, yeah, especially Kenneth Branagh.

I really do think 'Hamlet' is a good story...and I always kinda liked Hamlet.

Petri's Movie Diary - 2014 Edition (327 movies items)

"25.10.2014 Kenneth Branagh toi koko Shakespearen näytelmän valkokankaalle. Hieno saavutus. Ei tosin aivan niin mestarillinen kuin muistin. Paikoin Branagh vetää nimiroolissa turhan yli ja Patrick Doylen musiikki mitäänsanomattoman pateettista. Näyttelijätyössä ei juuri valittamista, cameot toimivat pääosin ja toteutus komeaa. Tylsää ei tule ja neljä tuntia taittuu joutuisaan tämän äärellä. Itse Hamletista (näytelmästä) turha sanoa juuri mitään. Onhan se kuitenkin "th"

Favorite shakespeare (28 movies items)

"Based on: Hamlet (of course) Audience: Shakespeare fans, or those who want to get deeper into Shakespeare. Context: Original context. Reason: This retelling of Hamlet is the most complete in cinema, and the cast is pretty incredible as well. Highly recommended for anyone who loves the play."

Doug's Top 20 Favorite Movies (Detailed Version) (20 movies items)

""OK, I swear this is the last Shakespeare movie. Of course, I love the play, who can't? But this version directed by Kenneth Branagh is my personal fave. I really enjoy the performances but I especially love the atmosphere and setting. Unlike Titus though, this all takes place in one setting. Sort of a Victorian-style era I think but it matches the work really well. The way it's set-up and put together is really clever and I really love how sympathetic Branagh makes the villain, Claudius. He act"

Filmsite Greatest Tearjerkers Scenes/Movie Moments (318 movies items)

"Kate Winslet's brilliant tearjerking portrayal of a driven-insane Ophelia (by her father Polonius' (Richard Briers) death at the hands of her lover/fiancee Hamlet (Kenneth Branagh)), offering reeds and calling them various flowers: "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray, love, remember: and there is pansies. That's for thoughts..." before she collapses to the floor and bids Queen Gertrude (Julie Christie) good-bye - before she sets out to commit suicide (off-screen)."
