Patrick Stewart really is old this time,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hamlet [UK Import] (DVD)
"The Tragical History of Hamlet Prince of Denmark" and not only the Prince but also his family. Not only his family but also his friends. Not only his friends but also all though that came before him and is told to those that came after him.
A quick synopsis is that Old Hamlet conquered Old Fortinbras seizing his land. Now that Old Hamlet is dead, Young Fortinbras wants his land back and is willing to take it by force. Meanwhile back in Dänemark Young Hamlet who is excessively grieving for the loss of his father, gets a now insight from his father's ghost. Looks like he was a victim of a "murder most foul"; it looks like his mother and uncle were in cahoots on the murder.
The dialog is the only thing good about this presentation. The hand full of true Shakespearian actors at least can say their lines well. The other actors just squeak it out. I was never a fan of modernizing Shakespeare unnecessarily. Moreover, this is a perfect example of why. Hamlet (David Tennant, 'Barty' Crouch Junior) reminds me of Monty Python. Too bad Patrick Stewart plays Claudius/Ghost here because it reminds me that he played in better versions of "Hamlet."
