Critic Reviews of "Macbeth (2006)"Seattle TimesJanuary 14, 2008
The play's power has been diluted by questionable editing, an overload of blandly stylized violence and the conspicuous suspicion that this whole thing is the predictable result of catering to base commercial instincts.Time OutAugust 16, 2007
Something weakened this way comes, you could say.Los Angeles TimesJuly 26, 2007
The film has the over-stylized sheen of a car commercial peopled by actors decked out like brooding fashion models.AV ClubJuly 13, 2007
Wright directs it with straight-faced conviction.Chicago Sun-TimesJuly 13, 2007
This Macbeth is true to the ugly-hearted original. No one is redeemed by gore, or absolved of madness. Nor do lines sound any less sublime when channeled through underlings and overlords.Chicago ReaderJuly 13, 2007
This is both an exciting thriller and a worthy addition to the canon of Shakespearean cinema.Empire Magazine AustralasiaNovember 07, 2012
The Bard gets buried in the gruff posturing, while the cadence of the words prevents the actors from playing to their strengths.Austin ChronicleAugust 10, 2007
It's probably best not to look too deep for meaning.Los Angeles Daily NewsJuly 27, 2007
Grunge and slickness substitute for eeriness or any hint of psychological terror.eFilmCritic.comJuly 13, 2007
By the prickling of my thumbs/Something crappy this way comesFinancial TimesJuly 13, 2007
After a few early spins in his grave, Shakespeare may end up grudgingly respectfulShadows on the WallJuly 13, 2007
This modern-day Australian adaptation of the Scottish play is thrillingly deranged, although it's also rather pretentious.
