The 3rd film version of Hamlet staring Mel Gibso

The 3rd film version of Hamlet staring Mel Gibson varies in many ways to original play, “The Tragedy of Hamlet.” The film version starts out with the morbid funeral of Hamlet, the deceased king of Denmark. Joining fellow mourners was Hamlet’s son, Hamlet and Gertrude, Hamlet Sr.’s former wife. This conflicts with the play for the first scene shows the ghost of the king while the guards keep watch. In the film, we do not see this scene for a good fifteen to twenty minutes or so. And when the apparition does show up, it is all in one night where Hamlet is present the first time we see the ghost. To keep an audience at a movie, you must follow some sort of flow that keeps the audience in their seats. I see how the ghost could have been the first seen, but it does not give any time to develop the sorrow Hamlet felt after the lost of his father.

First it is his father’s death. Then it is the fact that his mother and Claudius, Hamlet’s uncle married so quickly. Next there was the implication of evil doing by Claudius. Finally comes the death of Ophelia, Hamlet’s love interest in the story. In the play version, we start the story with some flashback, but most of these events have happened already.

I feel its purpose was to spread out the semi-climatic points so we, the audience, can be interested in finding out what happens next. After seeing the movie, I never realized Hamlet and his mother were so close in that sexual way before. On two occasions does Gertrude kiss Hamlet on the lips one was embarrassingly passionate too. Then during the speech where Hamlet is comparing his father to his uncle, he flings her onto the bed and straddles her…
