Excellent play, Actor Jeremy Brett was able to pull off MacBeth in a grand Shakespearian style
7 November 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I find that the worst rating is totally inaccurate. Jeremy Brett performed MacBeth in a grand Shakespearian style. His performance out did all other movies and plays of MacBeth. The plain set with limited props was able to create Macbeth in a true Shakespearian style. Those who may not have liked the performance might not have expected the movie in play form. It was outstanding and I would consider it excellent.
