We think that...
24 May 2000 | by (Jersey City, NJ) – See all my reviews

...this was absolutely the worst Shakespearean production ever created on the face of the planet. Enobarbus talks like he is drunk and Cleopatra looks cheap and does not fit the part of the beautiful queen of Egypt because she is not! I would rather watch paint dry or perhaps watch grass grow than see this movie. Timothy Dalton's Antony wears 1950's bomber jackets and looks like he's constantly ready to fight a duel on stage. Caesar highly resembles Richard Simmons and does not look a thing like royalty. I was waiting throughout the entire film for him to break out into a rousing round of "Shake Your Booty". The costumes, props, scenery, and camera work was absolutely vomit-inducing, and this comment is coming from a group of high school students, who in their short lives have seen more entertaining Kindergarten graduations. It is no surprise that we are only the second commentators on this movie. We imagine that construction workers can read Shakespeare better than these so-called "actors". The "actors" lack everything from acting abilities, articulation, and passion for the beautiful poetry that should have been expressed in this film.

This movie was supposed to be a complex love between two people, but Antony could not even look Cleopatra in the eye, let alone try and persuade us that they "love" each other. Antony had no rhythm whatsoever. He looked like he was ready to pounce on something. A quadraplegic amputee has more flow in their actions than these "actors".

We doubt anyone wanted to waste their time to critique this movie. However, we were just so angry that Shakespeare has been disgraced by this freak of nature that people actually dare call a "film". Our teacher should be refunded the $80 he spent on this monstrosity. Not that we're bitter.
