Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice?
Review: There isn't that much different between this adaptation and the others. It still had that Shakespearean way of speaking, which I find really annoying, and the scenery and acting is in true Shakespearean style. Personally, I can't stand these type of movies unless the director tries to come with some originality like the DiCaprio version, so I struggled to stay awake. When you watch a movie were you know the plot from beginning to end, and even the dialogue, I can't see how you can be entertained unless it has some form of twist to the storyline. Anyway, the actors didn't really shine and the tone of the movie wasn't pretty dull. I was hoping for something different as the director should have known that this story has been told many times before and in this day and age, it doesn't make sense just doing the same type of movie that we have seen on stage and on film. Disappointing!
Round-Up: There are a couple of actors in the movie that we have seen before, but it's Paul Giamatti that shines in the movie. The leading characters wasn't anything special and I personally thought that Juliet looked way too young for Romeo. People who are into there Shakespearean movies, and who can take 2 hours of his writing, won't find anything amazing with this movie, which was why it didn't go down that well with audiences. I've lost count of how many times this story has been told, so maybe it's time that they just leave it alone, unless they are going to come out with a Hip Hop version.
Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $1.2million
I recommend this movie to people who are into there Shakespeare movies that are true to his writings. 3/10
