Shakespeare's 17th century masterpiece about the "Melancholy Dane" was given one of its best screen treatments by Soviet director Grigori Kozintsev. Kozintsev's Elsinore was a real castle in Estonia, utilized metaphorically as the "stone prison" of the mind wherein Hamlet must confine himself in order to avenge his father's death. Hamlet himself is portrayed (by Innokenti Smoktunovsky) as the sole sensitive intellectual in a world made up of debauchers and revellers. Several of Kozintsev directorial choices seem deliberately calculated to inflame the purists: Hamlet's delivers his "To be or not to be" soliloquy with his back to the camera, allowing the audience to fill in its own interpretations.

Straight action movie forward with some humor, but nothing irritating or hacky. You don't see many action movies, that show the paper work after the hero beats up the bad guys. Best character in my view is the always annoyed secretary Maureen ( played by Lisa Stahle ) she should have had an bigger role. The movie has the worst name for an action movie hero: Elmo Freech and one of the most underrated Roddy Piper one-liners "[...] next stop toe-tag city"

Instead, he starts to lose his mind and starts becoming a crazed killer and stalker. This could have been an interesting film, mostly from the first half. The second half is just so bad and over the top in a bad way which made me lose interest in this one.
