5.0 out of 5 stars Words cannot describe how good this is, 27 Dec. 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hamlet [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
Gripping, tragic, a bit funny and utterly absorbing. The best Shakespeare production I have ever seen.

It goes without saying that David Tennant's Hamlet is outstanding. The rest of the cast are just as good, especially Mariah Gale as Ophelia, her madness is superb.

The production team also deserve honours. The set is beautiful, costume perfect and props ingenious. It has been translated well from the stage, remaining very much a play but at the same time incorporating some clever cinematic devices that keep the eye interested.

All in all superb. 183 minutes will feel like 20.

I would have liked some elaboration from "Elsa" on why she thinks Mr Tennant's Hamlet is outstanding - to write that "it goes without saying" might be ok on a fansite, but in a review it's not all that helpful. Nothing against Mr T, mind you - his performance was certainly not without merit, in my eyes.

I think that's the point, MistWraith, with a good actor you can't define why he's outstanding. He just is. He is the part, and that is what a good actor does.
