Capsule Review: A flat and uninteresting adaptation of Hamlet. Almereyda's modern adaptation attempts to update the Bard's most famous work into the world of corporations and camcorders. However, his effort seems strained at best. Unlike William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, which at least created an internally consistent fantasy world, Hamlet seems uneven, choppy, and not that interesting. There are plenty of excellent Hamlet adapations out there. This is not one of them.
