“..today's version will likely become a cheat sheet for slacking students, but it won't inspire them to open their hearts to the text..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..the film never really comes alive as a visual experience, despite the well-chosen locations, the handsome sets and Carlo Poggioli's sumptuous costumes..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
2 of 4

“..Romeo & Juliet is an uneven, albeit handsomely mounted, adaptation. But it's a forgettable entry among the dozens of movie adaptations of Shakespeare's tragic romance..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
