LADY MACBETH REVIEWED
“Lady MacBeth” only uses the Shakespearean undertones due to its source material. But, make no mistake…this is gender flipped. Watching a young woman go from being kept prisoner on a rich estate to finding love is fun. But, watching her use that new love to brutally murder opponents is astounding. The film is amazing when it commits to the violence, but it feels way too scary to stay in that arena.
I was pleased that the film played short and didn’t waste too much time. However, I wanted to see something with more bite. I’d recommend checking it out.
