5.0 out of 5 stars Best Movei That No One Ever Saw, May 31, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coriolanus (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
This movie wasn't aggressively marketed, nor did it play in many theaters. I suspect the Weinstein Co. didn't expect much of an audience for a movie based on Shakespeare. It is a shame since the acting, directing, cinematography, and even the sound of the battle scenes, were superb. For a long time, Sir Ian McKellan's Richard III has been the gold standard of putting the Bard in a modern setting, but Coriolanus surpasses it.

Not only does it remain true to Shakespeare, but it is a great war movie and character study. The casting is perfect. I cannot think how it would be possible to improve on it. Even the minor characters added much to the overall quality of this movie. The blu ray disc is has no video flaws and the sound is extraordinarily good and has great dynamic range. In fact, if you live in an apartment and your sound system has the option of limiting the dynamic range, you might want to use it. That way, you can hear the dialogue, but won't get complaints from your neighbors during the battle scenes.
