A bloody and brutal adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Dark and highly stylized, with some quality performances.

"Macbeth" meets "The Hurt Locker", operatic acting, earnest enunciation, measured articulation, everything way over the top

Wow.... Talk about doing it right. I love it when Shakespeare is updated correctly. (hated the Romeo and Juliet but loved Hamlet with Ethan Hawke) This version is part My Chemical Romance meets nine inch nails video and part amazing acting on all players parts. But mostly it's 100% terrifying. I love me the horror, and the classics and this is the best of both worlds. Truly the scariest Shakespeare you will watch... i love it!

Until now, I had only read the play, never seen it on stage or screen before. It is chilling and terrifying. The actors are all fantastic. This BBC/PBS version may have been made for television but the quality is so good, I would have paid to see it on the big screen.
