Christien Anholt as Marcellus. Pete Postlethwaite as Player King. Gibson gives the melancholy Dane an earnest but pedestrian reading. Feb 19, Rating: The pacing is a little slow at times, but I accepted it, because that is how the play already is. Shakespeare fans should adore it, although I guess some of the previous ones are considered better.
Zeffirelli’s sometimes slick but always lucid and beautifully cinematic version of the play. Post Share on Facebook. In retrospect, it’s a small jump from Shakespeare to God. The pacing is a little slow at times, but I accepted it, because that is how the play already is. Alan Bates as Claudius. Glenn Close as Gertrude. Going in you should probably know if this movie is for you or not.
The only two I’ve seen that I’ve liked are both from Zefferelli. Mel Gibson does do a pretty good job as Hamlet. There are no approved quotes yet for this movie. Going in you should probably know if this movie is for you or fipm.
But that just comes xtreaming the territory. It stays true to most of the originally scripted playwrights and tries to cover new grounds in making it a feature-length film. Not only is Mel Gibson much better than you might expect, but Zeffirelli’s Hamlet is often entertaining and rarely hard to endure.
Hamlet () – Rotten Tomatoes
Performances all fall in a middle range between the competent and the lackluster. There’s nothing embarrassing about Zeffirelli’s brisk new version, nor anything particularly remarkable; it’s an entirely credible, middle-of-the-road production. Sean Murray as Guildenstern. Don’t have an account? Roger Low as Player. Ned Mendez as Player.
It also cut a lot from the source material, which I didn’t particularly like either. sfreaming
Just leave us a message here and we will work on getting you verified. Starring Mel Gibson, Zeffirelli’s Oscar-nominated version is colorful and zeffirelpi engaging, but lacking depth and poetry, and the two women are miscast.

Amleto (Zeffirelli-Mel Gibson) – Video Dailymotion
The pacing is a little slow at times, but I accepted it, because that is how the play already is. I think this amldto one of the better versions of Hamlet particularly because of two aspects: Richard Warwick as Bernardo. He made the ultimate classic, Romeo and Juliet and then his version of Hamlet was pretty good as well. Justin Case as Player. Also, I think he portrayed Hamlet as he truly is with all his broodiness and internal conflicts effectively played out. Reduced to ‘Master Pieces Theater,’ Shakespeare’s text nevertheless gains in force what it loses in integrity.
Amleto (Zeffirelli-Mel Gibson)
KJ Proulx Super Reviewer. Nathaniel Parker as Laertes. The titular prince of Denmark Mel Gibsonreturns home to his family’s castle of Elsinore after years rilm attending school in Germany to find out his father has died and his uncle Claudius Alan Bates is the new king.
People who hate Shakespeare will hate it. To make matters worse, Claudius has married Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude Glenn Dtreamingwhom he has unusually strong feelings for. Christopher De VoreFranco Zeffirelli. It’s overly dramatic and its acting is way over the top in the drama department as well.
Strfaming Bell as Player. Roy York as Player. Christopher Fairbank as Player Queen. Jun 23, Rating: I didn’t particularly care for the angle they gave between Hamlet and his mother, Gertrude played by Glenn Close.
