Absolute genious - Macbeth review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
17/07/2009

Set in the Melbourne Underworld in present day is one of the reasons why i enjoyed this film so much, that and it keeps true to the original script (much like Romeo and Juliet adaptation with Leonardo Di Caprio).

Instead of swords there are maching guns, instead of horses there are sports cars and motocycles, the adaptation was done very well.

The movie keeps its medievel atmosphere whilst being very modern.

This movie is a must see!
