A riveting adaptation of William Shakespeare's classical work stars Mel Gibson as the title character who seeks revenge on his father's untimely death. It's usually very exciting and it proves that you don't have to particularly love Shakespeare's plays to enjoy their movies. The cast was wisely chosen; Mel Gibson surprises and proves that he can do Shakespeare too!
