not worth your time or money
With a fancy title and the noble intent to explore how life on earth was created, I was hoping for an intelligent summer movie. Unfortunately, this film is filled with plot and story holes, uninteresting wooden characters, average special effects and a story that has the simplicity worthy of only about ten minutes of screen time.
It is a shame that Hollywood continues to insult the intelligence of its audience. It reminds me of American car companies and how they thought that their cars would continue to sell even though Detroit quality fell behind the rest of the world.
While the filmmakers are laughing their way to the bank, they should be ashamed to have spent so much money on a film that is an embarrassment to their reputation. I want my time and money back.
the time is out of joint that this production was born to set it right
To watch this production was more painful than having a tooth pulled. Not only was Mr. Tennant terribly miscast (and my how he over acted. What was he and the director thinking?)as Hamlet, but the modern dress was an intrusion and it was in constant conflict with the language. Priorities appeared to be more bent on calling attention to the production than to the story and language. And what a shame that the audio was so poorly recorded. I watched it on a theatrical 5:1 system, and the poor audio micing muffled much of the Bard's poetry. In the long shots, the voices echo because production design used hard surfaces and did not take into account acoustics when building the sets. The Brits also do not know how to capture sound in both long shots and close-up so that the audio quality matches. The wide shots sounded totally different from the close-ups. Very amateur. Fortunately there were outstanding performances by all others--otherwise, this production should go down as a tawdry exercise.
