4.0 out of 5 stars better than Shakespeare! 26 Jan 2011
this is the retelling of Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'that has stood the test of time. It's simply done, placing Hamlet, or Amlad, in a reconstruction of how history mighy have been. With a mindblowing cast of British actors, Gabriel Byrne, Helen Mirren, Andy Serkis, Christian Bale, Brian Cox - to name but a few. And there's not a duff performance from any of them. Even Beckinsale, who is a rather pallid actress at best, brings charm and innocence to her role as a royal daughter. Byrne is on top form as the sneaky villian who kills Amlad's father and brother, charming the dead man's widow (Helen Mirren) and seizing the throne to Jutland. Amlad (Bale) pretends insanity to outwit him and is sent to England where he acquits himself well by fighting on the Earl (?) of Lindsay's (Cox)side & defeating his enemies, later claiming Gertrude (Beckinsale) as his bride. He returns triumpant to Jutland and - well, if you want to know what happens, buy the dvd! There is a fair bit of fighting and some nudity, but purists needn't worry, it is all in context. I have had this on my shelf for some years until I finally got around to it, and i am glad I did. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Real Hamlet 8 Jan 2004
The first time I saw this film it was on TV and about 3 a.m. Though it was late, it caught my attention and it became one of my favourite films with one of my favourite actors, Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects, Miller's Crossing). The film is basically Hamlet's real life, in his real time. You will not be attending a Shakespearian lecture or a Scandinavian History lesson, although you could get a bit of knowledge of the two. You will be watching and enjoying a very good film that without using any special effects tells a story that happens to be real; and it does it with a very good srcipt, good acting, perfect set up... If there is something wrong in this film I have not noticed it. It is deffinately worth watching it

This film, though a bit low budget, is interesting for telling the original scandinavian tale that was to inspire Shakespeare's Hamlet. The cast is good, and the costumes and locations a good attempt. More of a curio than a classic, but worth a look for anyone interested in the source of the play.
