While this movie is almost hilariously bad, it’s depiction is actually one of the most accurate to the original intention of the story. Both of the leads are excellent in this and their acting prowess is certainly felt. The romance is actually easier to understand when portrayed in this format. Plus the sass of the side characters is hilarious to watch. The adaptation of Shakespeare plays is hard to master, but this film is one of the better attempts, capturing what made Romeo and Juliet so intriguing without muddling the intent of the story. Too often the intention is seen as a love story instead of youthful foolishness and the consequence of senseless violence. An excellent portrayal and good movie.
