Well, being a collector of Shakespeare movies, I'm not sorry I bought the DVD (it was cheap), but this is not a good movie. Gloria Reuben is fine, and so is John Glover (his part is very small), but most of the rest of the cast (incl. Harold Perrineau) offer nothing but bad acting and over-acting, and the dialogue is almost universally inane - so much so that it hurts. Shakespeare's original words always excepted, of course. Someone like Perrineau is usually good, but he is pretty awful here, and I suspect the director is to blame.

The overall idea of having a love triangle drama between the actors playing Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and Macduff is in itself not bad at all, but this is sadly another example of someone trying to do Shakespeare (or something Shakespeare-ish) without having neither a good understanding of Shakespeare nor a particularly competent technical and directorial ability, and as a result the movie just doesn't work.

3 out of 10.
