ok, this was awful. I can't even begin to describe how bad it was. I mean the costumes were good. but here I will give you a list of why I hate this:
-cheesy lines
-they rhyme almost every single time they speak
- Juliet was not pretty at all. romeo was cute, but had too many delicate features in his face
- unnecessary sword fights

I was very impressed with this adaptation. The actors are all great, the locations are wonderful, and pacing is quick. I don't know why this movie didn't get better reviews. The leads, Booth & Steinfeld, are very good as Romeo and Juliet. In her NY Times review, Manohla Dargis stated that Steinfeld was miscast. After seeing the movie, though, I disagree. Perhaps Steinfeld wasn't the best to play Juliet, but I felt that she was very good and had an excellent grasp of the Shakespearean language (in contrast to most American actors). This adaptation is also great for all ages as well. You can introduce kids (ages 11 and up) to Shakespeare through this movie, since there are no R rated elements in this adaptation. I also loved the actor who portrayed Benvolio. He was so young, and yet so marvelous in the role! His grasp of the Shakespearean dialogue was splendid. All of the other actors, including Damian Lewis & Paul Giamatti, are fantastic. My only major complaint is that the highly emotional, yet good, score, got in the way in pivotal scenes. In any case, give this movie a chance. Highly recommended.

This adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet was excellent. What made it really special was the fact that it was filmed in Verona, and adapted by Julian Fellowes of Downton Abbey fame.
