    Hamlet afficionados won't want to miss Bill Murray's swarmy rendering of Polonius. But Hamlet's father was a man of noble stature, moral impeccability and competent leadership. Sorry Sam, you were mis-cast. Branagh's film, or Mel Gibson's complete "Playright's Cut" are time better spent.

    But all the devices and upgrades do little to bring the poetry's meaning into clearer and more relevant focus for today's audiences.

    Stylish, funny, and smart...but only up to a point.

    Almereyda has done a splendid job of rendering Hamlet as expressive visually as it is verbally.
