The Synopsis for Hamlet (2000) 1080p

New York, 2000. A specter in the guise of the newly-dead CEO of Denmark Corporation appears to Hamlet, tells of murder most foul, demands revenge, and identifies the killer as Claudius, the new head of Denmark, Hamlet's uncle and now step-father. Hamlet must determine if the ghost is truly his father, and if Claudius did the deed. To buy time, Hamlet feigns madness; to catch his uncle's conscience, he invites him to watch a film he's made that shows a tale of murder. Finally convinced of Claudius's guilt, Hamlet must avenge his father. Claudius now knows Hamlet is a threat and even uses Ophelia, Hamlet's love, in his own plots against the young man. Murder will out?

The Reviews for Hamlet (2000) 1080p

I cannot recommend this film enough. Although I can see where the abridgedtext might put purists off of this very stylistic modern interpretationoneof the bards most famous plays, I found it to be the most poetic andhonestcinematic Hamlet yet. Ethan Hawke plays hamlet much like he plays hisotherroles, with over sensitivity, intelligence, and a strong sense offutility.His talents are aptly used in this version of Hamlet where instead ofseeming like an ancient warrior prince Hamlet seems to be a fairly normal,if rich, art student caught up in an impossible circumstance.

The acting overall is worth noting as is the ingenious use of technology.However since the films praises have already been well sung on thosecountsby others, I'll mention how the film felt. It took me a little while tosuspend disbelief. As the film establishes itself with mentions of"Denmark"corp. and "Elsinore" condos it leaves you very aware that you are watchingan unusual production of the famous play. Likewise, at the begining of themovie I found myself identifying all of the actors like a tourist, "That'sBill Murray, Hey is that Kyle McLaughlin?" etc... but it didn't take aslongas one might think to become totally caught up things. And I did becomecompletely caught up even though I'm fairly familiar with the play. Thebestway I can describe it is to say that in other versions of this and thebardsother plays one is often more familiar with the speeches and the poetrythanwith the characters as living breathing people. Hamlet 2000 made me feelgenuine hatred for Claudius and sorrow for Hamlet. The Elizabethan Englishwith American accents and cadence seemed more natural to the ear than thebold theatrical speak that most Shakespearian films seem to think is arequisite.

I think the people who take their literature like medicine because it isgood for them will be sorely dissapointed by how enjoyable this movie isbutin my opinion it is an excellent balance between the beauty ofShakespeare'stext as text and the exciting story contained within.

Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Sam Shepard, Diane Venora, Bill Murray,Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Karl Geary; directed by MichaelAlmereyda, loosely based on the play by the Immortal WilliamShakespeare This is not your father's Hamlet, and really not yourHamlet either.

Set in modern day New York City, this adaptation by director MichaelAlmereyda attempts to blend the all time classic with a modern daylifestyle, while retaining the traditional speech and lines of theplay. Unintentionally comical for those familiar with the piece, itactually is able to combine the two worlds of twentieth century NewYork and sixteenth century Denmark quite well.

However this is also the movies downfall, as only with a workingknowledge of the classic are you able to understand the modern work,otherwise it is completely incoherent, with vital cogs of the plotmissing.

Denmark is no longer a country but now a corporation, Cladius(MacLachlan) not a King, but now a CEO. Computers and video are now thenorm, as this is how the movie begins. Polonius (Murray) is both thebest character and also probably miscast, as he would have done muchbetter in a cameo as the gravedigger, a scene that is deleted entirely!This gem and other scenes were deleted in order to pare down the lengthof the film, while attempting to preserve all major known lines. Yet,as earlier mentioned, for those who do not have a strong background inthe classical work, you will be quickly lost. The so-called 'fluff'that the producers thought Shakespeare used actually made the tale sobrilliant, relevant, and understandable. The modern work is none ofthese, only an ancillary piece for those with a vast Hamlet knowledge.

The major scenes are also greatly adapted to fit the environment,mostly to no effect. Most of the movie occurs in high-rise apartmentsor board rooms, giving it an awkward type of feel. With Hamlet (Hawke)and Ophelia (Stiles) being constantly watched in a city such as NewYork, i thought I was observing a Mafia film, as indeed that is whatthe Denmark corporation felt like, killing of Old Hamlet and all. Maybethat adaptation could've been a better fit, for the reduced length alsomakes the piece less-watchable, and much more bland with none of theintrigue. The murder of Polonius in the laundromat, Old Hamlet beingseen on a security camera, and Ophelia committing suicide in aGuggenheim fountain just does not have the same feel, something isdefinitely missing.

In all this film likely misses both it's core audience and lacks themass-market appeal that it was trying for. If a full four-hour versionwas released word-for-word of the original work, it would likely be acult classic, as it has the makings of a strong work. In all honesty,how can such a great work like Hamlet be lacking if shown in itsentirety? In the attempt for a higher box-office, the two hour versionhas no soul. If you find yourself in Blockbuster and face the samequestion as Hamlet, of whether this version is 'To be or not to be'showing on your TV that night, most likely it is not to be. However, ifyou are a teenage girl and enjoy looking at Ethan Hawke, or aShakespeare aficionado who wishes to laugh at some unintentional humor,this could be the ticket. A shame that more did not come out of such agreat cast, interesting premise, and mother of all base material inShakespeare. Either Almereyda or the Miramax really missed the boatwith this one.

Thank God I'm not aloneReviewed byCanEHdian PrideVote: 3/10

As I shut this movie off half way through I had a feeling that perhaps Shakespeare was a bit over my head and I was missing something that others would have gotten. I guess my feelings mirrored many others as I read through the user comments.

This movie was horrible. The entire tone of the movie is a depress fest and all of the comic relief scenes which are vital to the original work are omitted. I was expecting to see a Hamlet who was "mad" in the crazy sense of the word much like portrayed by Mel Gibson. Unless I missed it during my intermittent naps during the first part of the film I don't even think Hamlet talked about putting on a mask as to appear mad to the others like he does in the original work. Instead he is just a depressed, whining, toque wearing movie junkie that is a complete bore.

Liev Schieber in his limited time on screen was dynamite and I was hoping to see that kind of fire out of Hamlet instead of the hum drum attitude that he possessed in the time I wasted on this film.

To give you an idea of how bad this film was....I actually said to myself less then half way through: "Turn it off, this is painful to watch" and 30 minutes later that's just what I did. A total bore.
