Movie Review: Coriolanus (2011)

4 years ago

Hi there,

I recently saw this movie online because it was not released in my country. I am not sure if you heard about Coriolanus but I am a huge Ralph Fiennes fan and he directed and starred in it.
Gerard Butler was also in it!

The story of Coriolanus is actually based on the play "Coriolanus" by William Shakespeare. The story is about a celebrated soldier of Rome in a time where things are bad, people are hungry, there is uncertainty and his strict and somewhat harsh rules on the population makes him a hated man.

He is called Caius Martius but is given the title of Coriolanus after a brave attempt of attacking their enemies the Voscians (Gerard butler).

Politicians use him in a ploy that ends up leaving him banished from Rome and he is left dishonored after giving everything to his country. He swores revenge on Rome!

I don`t want to give away too much but in typical Shakespeare fashion, it is a tragic story and Ralph Fiennes did a great job playing the role of Coriolanus and keeping to the true story but telling it in modern Rome.

I rate it 7/10.

Have you heard about this?
Do you like Shakespeare?
