Shakespeare has left the building
4 December 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

To say this movie sucked would be too kind. I'll just say that at least the producers decided not to use the bard's old English (thank you). But I think the only person who actually read the play was the screenwriter and they still failed. Translating this oft imitated doomed love story to a modern Hispanic urban setting doesn't play as well as Baz Luhrmann's update, which was also based in California. No doubt there was not a large production budget here, but there was not enough emphasize on the drama and instead tended to focus on the hood angle, making it more a gangster wannabe flick than a love story. Then there was that soft core porn moment, which was not really necessary. The actress who played Juliet's best friend truly stood out. She did a great job. Everyone else in the cast could have benefited from an acting class or at least watching the Actor's Studio on the Bravo cable channel. Yes, I kept the DVD remote busy. Welcome to the Fast Forward Nation.
