Les says...Hi Mr.AspiringActor. I saw both versions, and I agree with you. Mel Gibson may be a horrible man, but he's the better Hamlet, which just goes to show you, you can't judge an actor by the way he fucks up his real life LOL! Great review, my friend. Peace.
BigBlackHatMan says...I disagree. Perhaps it is the fact that Brannaugh's Hamlet is more complete and more competent from top to bottom, but I prefer it. I think there are a lot of scenes were Gibson could have afforded to be more animated since it is Shakespeare. There is a little hamminess in that style. Yes, Brannaugh goes all out at times, but I think he does the slow and dramatic stuff really well too. So, that is my thoughts. Good video
