Hamlet--3 About
Hamlet

There are a handful of scenes which inevitably feel superfluous/overlong, but I'm not sure whether this criticism is really valid here, seeing this is something Branagh intentionally decided to fly right in the face of. Besides, the play’s high points - of which there are many indeed - are, in the words of a previous poster, just ‘unbelievably magnificent’, and brilliantly staged and acted here.
