It's under 2 hours and the text is sliced and diced, but this Macbeth still feels over-long. They
do some very interesting things with Lady M--here less the usual steely-eyed HBIC and more a grieving, barely functioning drug addict looking for a mission to pull her life together--and the husband/wife relationship, and it's certainly atmospheric. There are a few genuinely affecting scenes, but most of them are marred with odd pacing, overenthusiastic effects, or mumbled speeches. And in the end, the "edgy" choice to make Macbeth a stone cold drug lord removes the character arc, the emotional attachment, the tragedy, and what's left is just a very stylish slasher film with delusions of grandeur.
I went into this one with low expectations, and ended up laughing the whole way through. The cast
is extremely winning, there are some very funny gags and some decent fight scenes. Nothing revolutionary or extraordinary, but really a very charming romp.
