I thought this movie was a great modernization of Shakespeare's Macbeth. I know I have not learned all that I can about Macbeth and Shakespeare but I do know that with what i have learned, this movie is a wonderful rendition. I have been studying Macbeth in my English II Honors class and we watched this movie and I was rather surprised at how many similarities there were to Macbeth. It was unbelievable. I understand so much more with this movie. It was like a Sparknote movie to Macbeth. I really enjoyed it. And as there were some differences between the two, I was still able to see the connection between both movie and play. I would definitely recommend this to others as a helping tool for Macbeth as it is hard at times to understand.
