Mild and merry! A really great movie.
Much Ado About Nothing
From the beginning to the end, I was comfortable with this movie. The script mixed with the directing and the terrific acting created a glad feeling over this movie. The clips when sir.Benedict and Beatrice are extremely happy to the fake-news arranged by the prince, to the tunes of the main theme you smile, just because it is such a merry film. The language is highly enjoyable, of course. The love-enemies between Benedict and Beatrice are fabulous. Keanu Reeves is good, for once. Denzel Washington really is enjoying being in a Shakespeare-movie, and Branagh is very, very entertaining. I love this movie.
My Rating: 8.5/10
Much Ado About Nothing
With exception to the idiotic casting of Keanu Reeves, this is a perfect film version the classic Shakespeare romantic comedy. Branaugh and Thompson are perfectly paired as arrogant jesters who find themselves in a game of matchmaking, compliments of Denzel Washington, Richard Briers and Robert Sean Leonard. The highlight of the film is the bawdy performance from an unlikely performer in a Shakespeare film in Michael Keaton. Keaton is energetic and lively in his performance of the befuddled Dogberry. Branaugh also directed this lavish adaptation that was nominated for a Golden Globe.
