Hamlet was a great tragedy written by William Shakespeare, the tragedy was also made into a film after a lot of editing. The film has the same theme as the tragedy but there are some major differences between the two. The film according to me is better because all the characters come alive in the film and it is really effective, on the other hand, the tragedy does not appear to be as appealing as the film.
There were several actors who were queuing up to play the role of Hamlet, it was perceived to be the best role and it certainly was. The role which Oliver played was questionable because he was too old for the role, at 41 he lacked the zeal that the character of Hamlet must have in abundance.
“Murder most foul, as in the best it is, But this foulest, strange, and unnatural.” (Hamlet the Movie) These lines were uttered by the Ghost, the character of the Ghost is really important. The Ghost appears in front of Claudius who murdered the King of Denmark and reminds him that he is going to have a tough time.
Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark is arguably the most important character in the movie. Although the delays avenging the death of his father, the film is really appealing and effective. The delay in exacting revenge makes it unpredictable and even more interesting. To conclude it is very fair to say that the film is really appealing and it is better than the tragedy.
