First of all, although it says that this is Full Frame, it is in fact a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio. David Tennant's Hamlet is relatable, understandable, and very real. Patrick Stewart as Claudius shows more range of emotion than I have seen in any other Claudius. Ophelia is not my favorite, but she is more than made up for by the rest of the stellar cast.
Rated 5 out of 5 by holaawesome Seriously one of the best things I have ever seen!
David Tennant is superb in this role and the Royal Shakespeare Company does more than justice to Hamlet. Great film with amazing cast and skill. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoctorsCompanion A masterpiece
BBC and the RSC team up to provide a magnificent interpretation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. While they tailored the script a bit and the 3 hours can be a bit long for the average viewer, the story remains true. The beginning is a bit slow, but once it picks you up, it doesn't let go. It is a wonderful and moving performance all around. The grandeur of a stage performance and the subtleties of film are married perfectly in the actors. If you want to see a masterpiece, this movie is it.
