I may be too influenced by Franco Zeffirelli's version of Romeo & Juliet which was a master piece. This version is somewhat disappointing, the sets, costumes, and locales were all wonderful. The acting on the other hand had much to be desired. It seems Shakespeare eluded the actors.

Absolutely gorgeous movie with a great cast and supremely handsome Romeo. Shakespeare made easily digestible. My husband loved it as much as I did.

Fellowes' many changes diminish the power of Shakespeare's story. Full Review

While there is a pleasantness about this faithful Shakespearean reboot, there also is some woeful miscasting and a lukewarm feeling about the straightforward production. Full Review

Carlei’s film is not particularly imaginative in terms of context, but it offers proof that this material never tarnishes, that with the right sort of movie magic, even a traditional telling can be thrilling. Full Review

This version is never rough, nor rude, nor boisterous, but for first-timers, perhaps wisely and slow is the way to go. There will be time enough for them to discover cinema’s superior adaptations anon. Full Review

This is a competent, technically proficient rendering that may find favor with those who have never seen Romeo & Juliet on the big screen but it's little more than a curiosity for those with a long history of watching Shakespeare's works translated to the cinema. Full Review
