Coriolanus is not for everyone, in fact many people will likely hate it. I can't say I particularly loved the film, but it features many admirable qualities nonetheless. The cinematography is really good. Although it borrows heavily from it's Shakespearean roots, making it hard to understand, the script and solid and the actors deliver it wonderfully. The performances are all top-notch, Vanessa Redgrave in particular is stunning; she steals every scene she's in. If you're a fan of Shakespeare you absolutely must see this, and if you're not, it is still a good film even though it wasn't my cup of tea.

The performances are great - but unless you have an ear for Shakespeare, this is probably not the movie for you. I liked it well enough, but it does take some adjusting to get used to the flow. If you're in the right frame of mind, give it a shot.

Most everyone puts in a good acting effort. I can't say much positive about the rest, though. The directing and editing had me dizzy and confused about the action and story. The fast-spouted 'Shakespear' dialogue only added to the confusion, because I am not used to hearing that type of speech.

Coriolanus is a great soldier of Rome. When he is about to take the consulship of the city, the politician-manipulated mass gone mad at him, betraying and condemning him from Rome. He then joins force with the enemy to take revenge. *** From a Shakespearean story to great actors playing the characters, this film come with excellence. Though the film was not really for entertainment or a mainstream type, this movie was a success on bringing heavy-weighed matter to its viewers. The film itself as a whole may not be that relevant to the current time and that even the resolution of the movie did not come with great impact, still a great job done by the producers and creators of this film.

Splendid performances with a sense of depth

Coriolanus is the directorial debut of Ralph Fiennes, who plays as Marcius Coriolanus. With the end of Harry potter series, it seems that Ralph Fiennes has entered to take a movie on his own hand. Without making any experimentation, he has chosen a tragedy drama written by William Shakespeare during the period 1608. With a powerful cast chosen in form of Gerard Butler, Jessica Chastain(wife) and Vanessa Redgrave(mother) to reprise their respective roles, Ralph has already emerged a winner. Considering the previous experience of Gerard, we might jump to a conclusion that he has lost the image of taking powerful roles since 300. The plot in here demands a much stronger role that might really help him from his previous failures. John Logan who is already much experienced in handling the plot...
