Synopsis

Hamlet (Sir Kenneth Branagh), son of the King of Denmark (Brian Blessed), is summoned home for his father's funeral and his mother Gertrude's (Julie Christie's) wedding to his uncle Claudius (Sir Derek Jacobi).

In a supernatural episode, he discovers that his uncle, who he hates anyway, murdered his father. In an incredibly convoluted plot, the most complicated and most interesting in all literature, he manages to (impossible to put this in exact order) feign (or perhaps not to feign) madness, murder the "Prime Minister", love and then unlove an innocent who he drives to madness, plot and then unplot against the uncle, direct a play within a play, successfully conspire against the lives of two well-meaning friends, and finally take his revenge on the uncle, but only at the cost of almost every life on-stage, including his own and his mother's.

Ronald Green
5/10

On the other hand, some may find the soundtrack of Hamlet to be a bit overwhelming at times. The heavy use of strings and choirs can border on melodramatic, taking away from the subtlety of certain scenes. However, overall, the music does effectively convey the turmoil and tragedy that unfolds throughout the play.

Karen White
2/10

The soundtrack for Hamlet lacked depth and emotion, failing to capture the intensity and complexity of the characters and their struggles.

Deborah Green

The use of classical instruments in the soundtrack enhances the overall feeling of tragedy and betrayal, immersing the audience in the world of the characters.

Laura Martinez
7/10

The memorable and evocative musical motifs in Hamlet linger long after the performance, leaving a lasting impression and enhancing the overall experience of the play.

Deborah Brown
3/10

The musical choices in Hamlet felt disjointed and out of place, detracting from the overall atmosphere of the film and making it difficult to fully engage with the story.
