In director Baz Luhrmann's contemporary take on William Shakespeare's classic tragedy, the Montagues and Capulets have moved their ongoing feud to the sweltering suburb of Verona Beach, where Romeo and Juliet fall in love and secretly wed. Though the film is visually modern, the bard's dialogue remains.

For the love of god, do not make a movie set in modern day with modern infrastructure and guns with shakespearean language STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PLAY SCRIPT. IT IS THE MOST CRINGEY THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. oh and the drag queen would get kicked off rupaul's drag race in round 1. they got the pool scene right, and that's it.


It is horrible I get more enjoyment from Godzilla(1998)


I've never seen a movie like this and probably will never see one again. This whole thing is flashy and colorful and poetic at the same time. It's a very interesting take on perhaps the most famous love stories of all time.The acting in super good. Leo and Claire were young but their acting were very very good. Some of the supporting actors were too awesome to forget.The director did something unique with this story. Its brave and new and in the end gave us a movie which the audience will probably never forget watching. The way he merged modern time with this classic story is weird yet interesting.This is crazy and fun at the same time. Most of the viewers knows what is going to happen still will sit through this just because its very entertaining to watch.


SPOILER IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE PLOT OF ROMEO AND JULIET Romeo is dramatic and goes to a party where he kisses an engaged girl he just met. They then become deeply in "love" and are really dramatic and threaten to kill themselves a lot. Romeo kills his girl's cousin and says its not his fault, it's fate's. Then they kill themselves in an annoying way.Everything was awful, over-dramatic to the max even though it was set in a modern setting. There was no Paris in the ending scene, what happened to him????Like if you could marry Paul Rudd wouldn't you? she knew Romeo for like an hour and killed herself when he died.Also Juliet saw Romeo kill himself and didn't speak up it was bad, too many candles.cinematography was so all over the place, it made me nauseous.What is with the neon crosses in the church?Where were her parents and nurse when she was "dead", it was like Friar Lawrence sneaked in and called the authorities?ALSO WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT 0/10 STARS, TERRIBLE, I'D RATHER WATCH AND READ THE FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY SERIES THAN REWATCH THISWATCH IT IF YOU HATE Shakespeare AND YOURSELF!
