When should we three meet again? In thunder, lightening, or in rain?
When the hurley burley's done. When the battle's lost and won.
That will be ere the set of sun.
Where the place?
Upon the Heath, there to meet with Macbeth.

Near the very end of the closing credits, the voice of one of the witches can be heard, very faintly whispering, "His issue shall be kings." See more »
Australian production and low budget that ultimately outputs whats been put in.
The actors have done a brilliant job. Their emotions and effort placed into the emphasis and moment are excellent. And the reinterpretation undertaken into a modern day underworld crime syndicate similarity is superb.
Although lacking in some crucial moments of the Shakespearian script, it can be forgiven as this is not your usual stage play. It has been remade to invite not just fans of Macbeth, but perhaps bring in a new source of people who may perhaps prefer a lighter dialog with more modern environments. Perhaps a good way of viewing this is the overview of Macbeth has been superposed on these modern day criminals.
That with the beautiful soundtrack and bone chilling scenes and shootouts, it produces an enthralling and enjoyable movie. That is enjoyed more if a understanding of the original Macbeth is known.
By comparison, one can appreciate and enjoy both. This is definitely a lighter version that the audience can understand, through Macbeth's eyes.
