All those who are claiming that this movie is just an action movie are just misinformed. This is one of the best movies of all time, that i have ever seen. Although the movie is an action movie, it is so much more than that. Everything is so well thought out and beautifully done. Every actor gives their best and it shows. I absolutely loved every second of the movie. I never get tired of watching it. Every time i watch it, i watch it a little differently. I found out that this movie is a masterpiece that i would recommend to anyone, regardless of what your likes and dislikes are. If you are tired of action movies, i highly suggest you to watch this movie. All you need to do is pay attention to the plot. It is just as good as the real Shakespeare. There are no flaws in this masterpiece.

I love this movie. I've read the book and the movie does a great job of telling the story of the first two parts of the story. It's interesting to see the people's point of view of the movie and of the war. I think that it's one of those movies that you have to take to if you are interested in war and war movies.

This is one of those films that I could watch over and over again. Every time I watch it, I am surprised at how much I like it. Some films are so good and stay with me for a long time after I have seen them, but this one is one of them. I am not sure how it will be received by some people but I for one am not impressed with the US. I believe that if this film did not get some distribution, it would have gone unnoticed in the US. If you have not seen it, do so now.

The movie was awesome! I loved the story line and the acting was outstanding! I highly recommend this movie! I have seen many movies that have been rated extremely low and this is one of the best! The whole time I was watching it, I was thinking that I was watching a movie and was totally fascinated with the story and characters. I have seen many Hollywood movies and this is by far the best! It was the only movie I have ever seen that is the same length of a movie! I want to see it again and again! I have seen this movie so many times! I want to watch it again and again and again! I am going to watch it again and again! I was so impressed with the acting of Mr. Wilkison! I have never seen him do anything like that! It was great! I hope to see him in other movies soon! I would love to see this movie again! I just hope to see more movies like this and hopefully Mr. Wilkison can do more movies like this!

This is my first review on IMDb, and I feel that I have to comment about this film in a positive way. I just watched it for the first time and I can't believe how great it was. I was already a big fan of the book, and this film was definitely worth the time and money to see it. It was really amazing. The acting was perfect. The music was great. The setting was perfect. The story was wonderful. The characters were great. The movie was well-paced. The effects were great. It had everything that I expected from this film. I have to say that I was so pleased with the ending, because it was so realistic and unexpected. I am not a movie critic. I just like to watch good movies and I can not wait to see what happens next. I don't really like to think about the story. I just like to watch the movie and I can not wait to see what happens next. I loved the cinematography, the sound, the direction, and the way everything was filmed. The fact that the story is set in the 13th century, but the setting is in modern times, is perfect. This movie is definitely going to be a favorite for a long time. It was really good and I am very glad that it was a good movie. I do not want to spoil anything, so I won't say anymore. This movie is great and I definitely recommend it to everyone.

I have seen the movie and it is a masterpiece of its genre. I have seen it three times, I know it well. As the closing credits play, I cannot see how anyone could not see this is a true masterpiece. The actors are superb and the music is excellent. The concept is very interesting and the scenery was a beauty, a kind of inspiration to me. It was a very good movie. For a good romantic movie, this one is really good. I love it. If you are a classical or a movie fan, I recommend you to see this movie. I don't think I will forget it. I will watch it several times. It is truly a masterpiece.

I loved this film. I've watched it a few times and every time it brings something new to the table. This is my third time seeing it and every time I find something I didn't see the first time around. I think my favorite part of the film is when Midshipman has the choice between saving his wife or his men. I love the way the plot of the film is laid out, all the characters are believable and that the movie is a beautiful love story. There are a few themes that come up in the film that I think are worth considering and this film is worth checking out. I will say though, if you have never seen it before you may have trouble understanding it because it is a little bit different then the books. There are a few scenes that are different from the book. I like to think that is because the movie is more of a play then a book, so to speak. The cast of this film is just perfect. I will say that the only thing that bothers me about this movie is that the role of Prospero was written differently then the book. I understand that they had to change the character in order to fit the movie but I would have preferred the film be written in the same way. That being said, this is a great film that I definitely recommend.

For some reason, I have been skeptical of this film for years. I thought the first film, in my opinion, was less than the book, but that was because I didn't think it was good enough. Having said that, I must say that I'm very glad that the film has gotten such a good reception. The film is a hard look at the evolution of the Macbeth and how it was the foundation of his evil ways. By the end of the film, I was glad to see how he became what he became. Even more so, when he became the very image of the great House of England, in which the Lord Mayor sat. The film also has some beautiful shots, some very good acting, and even some great music. In a way, the film is a tragedy. It seems as if the film itself is an allegory, rather than a reflection on the actual story. It is interesting that the film is based on the Book of Sir Walter Scott, and that Sir Walter Scott's name is used. (Sir Walter Scott was the author of Macbeth) It seems that the filmmakers were inspired by Sir Walter Scott's vision of King Duncan and House of Macbeth. However, the filmmakers are not directly citing Sir Walter Scott or the writer of Macbeth. Perhaps the filmmakers felt that a good director would be looking for inspiration from Sir Walter Scott, and not the writer of Macbeth. Also, the film seems to be very accurate to the original story, as many of the details are almost exactly as they were in the book. For instance, the three characters from the book, Macbeth, Duncan, and Mapes, are played by actors that resemble the actors from the book. The film has many more actors than the book, so maybe the film could have gotten away with a few changes to the actual story. The movie is a shame because of the ending, and for the characters to die in the film, and for Duncan to die in the book. A few other differences I noticed were that Macbeth is a little older in the film, and he has a much bigger role. Also, in the film, Duncan is shown much more vicious, but the book version of Duncan had a more angelic character. So, I think the film is a good example of why a film should not be taken too seriously.

The fact that the majority of audiences tend to dislike this movie is a very sad thing indeed. How can a movie that focuses on the life and death of a man with no knowledge of the subject be so often panned? This was a masterpiece of historical drama. The plot was well-established and credible, the acting was superb, the cinematography was outstanding. It made you think about what is going on in the heads of the people in the beginning of the war, and, yes, it is so real that the style of the film is very effective. It is a brilliant film that is going to give a lot of people nightmares for a very long time. This film made me feel I was living it. I had a very intimate and emotional experience watching it, and I can't wait to see the movie again. It is the first time I've watched the movie twice in one night. I think if I saw it twice it would be too much. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes historical dramas, because it is a very well-made movie and I think everyone will enjoy it. The film really does stand the test of time and you will find yourself thinking about it for a long time. It is a masterpiece, one of the best movies I have ever seen.

The first thing I have to say is, I wasn't expecting this movie to be much of anything. I knew I had to see it because of it's superb cast, but I never thought I would enjoy it. I mean, I am a huge fan of Neil Marshall and was sure he would be able to bring something special to the film, but no. He's not even great. He was good. The fact that he was on screen at all was really impressive, though, and what he did with the role, I can't say. I'm not one of those guys who does mind if a director is talented. I always have my doubts about any of his work (except of course, in Kingdom of Heaven), and this is one of the rare instances where he really impressed me. The story was good, but the way it was told, and the way the characters were developed, were really superb. It's true that I think it's the best movie I've seen all year, but I can't deny that it's the best movie I've seen this year. It's really hard to find a movie with this much talent and creativity. I don't want to go into the plot, but I would like to say, it's one of the most profound things I've ever seen in a movie. It's a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. I don't want to say more. That's the good thing about it. I think the best thing about it, is the fact that it's also a movie that you can watch over and over again, and that's really cool. So go see it. It's not too hard. And, hopefully, you will enjoy it more than I did.

A great film with amazing characters, story and cinematography. The film has the right amount of slow-paced scenes and action that makes you want to keep watching. I also think that it was very well cast, with actors who can really show emotion, make you believe in what they're saying. This is a great film that will be remembered in a long, long time.

I loved this movie. I don't know how they can turn it into such a horrible piece of trash, but it's definitely worth the watch.

There is not much to say about this movie. The story is simple, the acting was great, the characters were done perfectly. The only thing that really bothers me is the over acting of the king. I will say that he was over acting when he was having nightmares and when he was talking to his ministers. But in general I loved this movie. I would give it a 10 for sure.

This film has moved me so deeply that I have since read the text. I am a fan of the stage version, and I was terrified to read the first edition of the play. The re-imagining of the play and the great cast are the best things I have ever seen. My only complaint is that sometimes the dialog seems too bland, and sometimes it's hard to tell who is speaking and who is reading. However, the dialogue is excellent. The actors are all exceptional and all do a great job. I highly recommend this film. The casting, the music, the editing, the costume design, the setting are all brilliant. I haven't read the text for a long time, but I've found a new appreciation for the play. It is a very profound, but not overly-sentimental version of the play, and I think that it is a great success. If you can get the original play, you will not be disappointed. You will want to see this film. I'm looking forward to seeing it again. Highly recommended.

This film is truly magnificent. Everyone has to see it at least once and I know I will be seeing it a lot. This film is about the magnificence of Art. It is about the process of making a movie and the relationship between the director and the actors. It is about the beauty of life. It is about the fragility of life. It is about love. And this film is all of these things and more. Yes it is a Shakespearean play. That may seem to be a given but in reality it is really an extension of all of Shakespeare's works. And if you are a Shakespearean scholar you will recognize all of the obvious connections. But it is not only Shakespeare. The actors are so very believable. The cinematography is beautiful. And the music is absolutely perfect. And the film is a dream. It is perfect. I wish I could have lived that moment in the theater. And the film is beautiful. I don't understand why people are so negative about it. It's such a beautiful film. No film I have ever seen is as beautiful as this one.

I thought this was a great movie. I thought it was very well acted and well directed. I thought it was very visually stunning and very moving. I found it a very intense and realistic look at what war could really be like. The characters were realistic and true to life. The actors were brilliant and I found them to be very convincing. I also thought that it was very good that the movie didn't take place in the 21st Century, it was set in the 18th century. I found it so interesting to see how they really lived back then. I thought the story was great, especially the battle scenes. I loved the background music which was very appropriate for the scene. I thought the costumes were very beautiful. I thought the lighting was very appropriate, especially the scenes where they were in the cathedral. I thought the movie was very good and I can't wait to see it again when it comes out on DVD. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.

While watching the film, I did not find it too convincing at all. I found the story line rather strange and uninteresting. I was happy to see the film was not too dissimilar to the book, and found it the best adaptation I've seen of this epic tale of the famous story. One thing I did feel for was that I did not really like the Shakespearean style of acting. The accent, the style of speaking and the acting just all seemed quite out of place. Overall, the performances were fine, but I found it hard to believe the actors that were involved. The film was great, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the story of the play, and has never seen the film.

As I watched this movie, I was amazed to see the plethora of historical references. There are references to Shakespeare, Robert, Cromwell, Elizabeth, the Fall of France, and many others. But, the most shocking and amazing references are found in the beginning of the movie. The movie starts off with the Battle of Agincourt. After that, the movie takes you to the first few days of William Shakespeare's life. As the movie progresses, you see the beginnings of William's first wife. They have been married for 15 years, and they both look like they are having a great time. However, after about 10 minutes into the movie, you are in shock at what you are seeing. You are left completely speechless as the film ends. That is the only time I have ever had the feeling that something truly special was about to happen. The first time you see it is the best. I am not even sure if I could explain this feeling.

I went to see this film in a packed cinema and was so disappointed! This film was terrible. The acting was bad, the story was bad, the direction was bad and the set design was horrible. I thought the film would be good because it had a good story, but it really wasn't. I felt like I was watching a BBC film and I was bored out of my mind. The acting was so bad I felt it was a mistake to even cast Frances McDormand in the role. The whole film was a mess. I really wish they had kept the time period and made it a bit more exciting but what can you do? It was terrible. I don't want to see any more films from this director.

I recently watched this film for the second time, and had to re-assess how well I had anticipated it. In short, this film is a cinematic masterpiece, and what makes it even more powerful is that it's one of the best films I've ever seen. To the specific plot points, I'll try to stay as short as possible. So here goes: 1) The story. The entire movie takes place in the theater, and you can feel it. It's a unique experience, that will probably only be able to be shared with a few people. From the beginning, it's clear that the audience is the main protagonist, and nothing else. It's a rare and very interesting circumstance that you're the only one in the room, and you just have to react to what happens. This movie is filled with wonderful scenes and moments, and is also filled with one of the most powerful, yet simple, movies ever. 2) The acting. The actors give life to their characters. I've always had great respect for Meryl Streep, but I've also become a huge fan of Anthony Hopkins. With his first Oscar, he made himself the new master of acting. One of my personal favorite scenes is when she is talking with the Admiral's daughter about the West African Queen and her dance, and his deadpan and knowing reply is perfect. In my opinion, he's probably the best actor of our time. 3) The technicalities. The cinematography is absolutely magnificent. Each shot is so breathtaking that you don't want to miss a single one. Each shot has an immense meaning, and you can't help but feel and understand the emotion that they must have been trying to show. 4) The scenery. It's hard to overstate how amazing this movie looks. It's impossible to find a single scene that looks cheap. The camera angles and lighting are perfect, and the film looks beautiful and really brings the viewer into the story. 5) The music. The music is just amazing. I don't know much about the music. There are a couple of songs that are too short or inaudible, but most of them are absolutely amazing. "Blood and Roses" is a beautiful, haunting, and a perfect example. You don't hear much of it, but when you hear it, it's just so haunting and beautiful. It's also the perfect accompaniment for the rest of the score. 6) The acting. I'm going to be completely honest here. I have never seen an actor so perfectly cast. I've never seen a scene of a character so different from any other scene of the movie. I've never seen a performance so perfect. I've never seen any actor do a better job than Michael Fassbender, and I can't wait to see him in this role for the third time. I'm not going to even talk about JK Simmons. If this were any other actor, I would never have rated this movie so high, but he is just great. I've seen him in just about every movie, and I've never seen him do a better job than he did here. He's probably one of the best actors of our time, and this is definitely his best performance ever. 7) The camera angles. I've always been a huge fan of this. The shots are so powerful, and really makes the movie feel

Not only is this movie the most powerful, most entertaining and most lyrical of the Scott Tarlet films, it is also one of the most moving films I have ever seen. Like so many of his films, this one is long, slow and always focused on the actor, not the action. It is a wonderful, wonderful film and one of the finest I have ever seen. I loved it! You must see it!
