Coriolanus Blu-Ray / DVD Review

Synopsis: The classic legend of honor and betrayal has been astonishingly re-imagined in this exhilarating action thriller that wields a profound relevance for today. Caius Martius 'Coriolanus' (star and director Ralph Fiennes) is a feared and revered Roman General, suddenly pitted against his own city and fellow citizens. Rebelling against the power-hungry designs of his manipulative mother (Vanessa Redgrave) and rejected by his own people, Coriolanus incites a riot that expels him from Rome. The banished hero joins forces with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to exact his revenge -- and determine his destiny.

Review: This film is a very interesting adaptation of Shakespeare's Coriolanus.  The film stars the dynamic Ralph Fiennes with support from Gerard Butler.  This one has a great cast and that really takes it a long way.  They do a great job of bringing forth a lot of political sentiment that mirrors our world today and drawing the paralells where necessary.  The reception for this film was fantastic and we couldn't agree more.  This tale of tragedy is well worth the watch.

Interest Range: Drama, Action
