Review of the film Macbeth

Extracts from this document...


Lewis Smith Review of the film Macbeth Macbeth is set in 19 century. The settings are set in Scotland, where the king Duncan lives. The film' main character is Macbeth. There are a few others like Banquo, Lady Macbeth and king Duncan before he gets murdered. At the beginning of the film the Scottish have won a war and you see a horrific sight when a Scottish person hits the one of the opposition in the back with his hammer twice and blood squirts out. Just after that Macbeth and Banquo are on their horses heading for home when they see these witches that say to Macbeth "you will be king!!!" and Banquo tells him not to listen to them. ...read more.


Macbeth becomes king, but he can't get over the death of Duncan. He can't get to sleep and has a feeling that Banquo knows. He hires hit men to kill Banquo and his son Fleonce. The hit men were successful for killing Banquo and you see Banquo get killed with an axe, but they failed to kill Fleonce. During this time Malcolm and Macduff has fled to England to get help from them. Macbeth arranges a guest party, his first as king. In this party his mind plays tricks on him and he sees Banquo. This sight is horrific, twenty gashes on his face. He acts very strangely way and Lady Macbeth covers and gets rid of the guest. ...read more.


Lady Macbeth was a very mysterious and humorous character because she forced Macbeth into the devious plan so she could be queen. The producer has set the film well. He has set it in a isolated setting up on the mountain with only the people who lives in the castle where there. All incidents happened in the dark and also it was raining, and it was thunder and lightning. In my opinion this film deserves four and a half stars out of five stars. I insist this to anyone over the age of twelve because there are some scenes that younger children should not see. Also to people who enjoy a bit of blood and watching people get hurt. The film could be improved by shortening it and cutting out most of the needles talking. ...read more.
