Coriolanus

High-Def Digest
7 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Credit Ralph Fiennes with taking a giant risk in filming and updating one of Shakespeare's most notable historical tragedies. 'Coriolanus' is an impressive production, filled with gritty scenes of conflict, relevant themes, and fine performances by a stellar cast, but unless you're a true Shakespeare aficionado, you might not be captivated by the tale's presentation.

  • Conclusion: Ralph Fiennes displays admirable ambition, but modest craft in his modern interpretation of one of Shakespeare's least-known dramas. Coriolanus is a challenging film whose intrigue is swiftly lost in the bold contrast between its words and uninspired visions.

Coriolanus Review

DoBlu
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Coriolanus is the directorial debut for Ralph Fiennes, who also stars in the film as the titular character. It’s a straight adaptation of one of the more obscure plays by William Shakespeare, remade here under the framework of a modern action movie. What will be polarizing to some viewers is the movie’s complete use of the bard’s original words in a modern setting.

Coriolanus Blu-ray Review

17 May 2012
  • Conclusion: If you're a Shakespeare fan, you should get this Blu-ray, because you're not likely to see a production of Coriolanus anytime soon, and if you do, it probably won't be as effective. If you're a fan of war films, you should get this Blu- ray, because it's a unique and enthralling war film. If you're a fan of fine drama, you should get this Blu-ray, because it features some of the finest actors working today giving great performances.

Coriolanus

AV Club
19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus is the story of a peerless soldier undone twice: first by an inability to stir any tenderness in his soul when he’s made a leader of men, then by a late-arriving overabundance of that tenderness. He’s only skilled at killing—bred for it by a patriotic mother, if not born to it—and lost when called upon to do anything else.
