Storyline

As a rebellious and motherless child, Ophelia is taken into Elsinore Castle by Queen Gertrude as one of her most trusted ladies-in-waiting. Soon enough, Ophelia captures the affections of the young Prince Hamlet. A passionate romance kindles between the 2 in secret as the kingdom is on the brink of war amidst its own political intrigue and betrayal. When Hamlet's father is murdered and the prince's wits begin to unravel into an insatiable quest for vengeance, Ophelia sharply navigates the rules of power in Denmark all while struggling to choose between her true love and her own life.

I Knew It Would Suck As Soon As I Saw The Mary Sue From Disney Star Wars
29 September 2019 | by alakaifielderSee all my reviews

And I was correct!!

I watched this film and I was disgusted. The sets are so cliche, the acting is terrible and amateur hour (especially Daisy Ridley with her wig), the music was lifted from ten other movies and it was such a stale take on the original. Why do they keep remaking stuff??
