By far one of the most compelling and riveting and consummate story-telling i have seen in a a long time, a film which is all three! Go see it! Gerard in his most complete and perfect performances to date! I do not understand the reviewers here who comment that the film's dialogue is hard to understand. The Cinematography and storytelling is so revealing that one does not need to understand every

The modern day setting really didn't work for me in this and I just generally didn't care for the movie. Disappointing.

The trailer makes the story look full of character. Gerard Butler doesn't pick bad movies. I believe this will be worth the money

Gerry at his most Brilliant! An Oscar worthy role for certain!

Village Voice
In the case of Ralph Fiennes's adaptation of Coriolanus - the transposition to present day is confusing and counterproductive, dulling the impact of an otherwise fierce, often unbearably immediate production. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
Fiennes' crackerjack Coriolanus stays true to the clever, almost mean-spirited twists and turns of the story, and preserves the authentic flavor and texture of the language. Full Review

If you give yourself over to that clash of style and sensibility, something magical happens as the power, the prescience and the precision of Shakespeare's words take hold of modern problems. Full Review

Vanessa Redgrave nimbly plays Coriolanus' mother, Volumnia, a blend of formidable stage mother and a puppeteering power behind the throne. Full Review

Fiennes and Logan haven't made a definitive Coriolanus, but they've made a sensationally gripping one. They have the pulse of the play, its firm martial beats and its messy political clatter. They tell a damn good story. Full Review
