Reviews
Mine: Decent. Gibson does better than you would expect.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Agreeable re-do of the Shakespeare staple with Gibson giving an energetic interpretation of the Melancholy Dane. In fact, Mel comes off better than costar Close (Gertrude); Bates, as Claudius, is the standout in the stellar cast. Never as enthralling or perceptive as Kenneth Branagh's HENRY V, but still worthwhi
