Audience Reviews for Macbeth

Stewart and Fleetwood are amazing. As good as any I've seen play the roles. Michael Feast, as Macduff, has an incredible take on the scene where Macduff finds out what Macbeth has done to him. I loved it. I don't care for modernized setting for Shakespeare, but I can't fault this version.

A compelling and utterly bone-chilling adaptation. A masterpiece. It's a stylish, spine-tingling and robust edge of your seat thriller that shakes you to the core. An incredible tour de force of work all around for the production, the direction and Stewart's unforgettable performance. Patrick Stewart is absolutely magnificent, he shines in this classic role and gives one of his most commanding and stunning performances. A triumphant performance. Nothing short of brilliant stuff. A furiously entertaining and stylishly told movie.
