Storyline Heading
The President of the Denmark Corporation is dead, and already his wife is remarried to the man suspected of the murder. Nobody is more troubled than her son Hamlet. Now, after this hostile takeover, trust is impossible, passion is on the rise and revenge is in the air.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - Although aimed at a younger audience, it's doubtful that those viewers will shine to this strange modern-day adaptation of the Shakespeare play. Older viewers, especially afficionados of the Bard, will likely have greater difficulty enjoying the film. The violence makes the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
The big struggle for a filmmaker looking to adapt a classic (read: old) literary work for the screen is to make it accessible to contemporary audiences. The trend these days appears to be translating the story into modern times--or, more accurately, transplanting the story, leaving the original language intact. The intent of the shift is obviously to put a fresh spin on a familiar tale, but in the case of Michael Almereyda's revisionist take on William Shakespeare's oft-filmed Hamlet, the move feels more a lazy gimmick than an inspired dash of creativity.
