I was very pleasantly surprised how well this movie fits into the plot of 'Hamlet'. It makes complete sense despite dramatically changing who Ophelia is and what her role in the events is. This Ophelia doesn't see everything that happens in the play -- why would she have? And the movie introduces a major new character not in the play, but it is one whom Hamlet might well not have known or deemed important enough to notice. It really worked quite well.

The acting was solid. Daisy Ridley was adequate to the job at hand. Far more interesting were Clive Owens as a lusty, dangerous Claudius and Naomi Watts as a more interesting Gertrude than usual. And it makes sense that Ophelia might view those two people and interact with them differently than did Hamlet.

My main quibble was minor. The moviemakers felt the need to ramp up the violence at the end, as if the play was not bloody enough. But that did provide a nice contrast to the pastoral post-play coda of the film.
