[Wishaw] has a command of the language that, along with Mirren, sets the film along its proper axis.

Rating: 6/10 -- There are two reasons to watch The Tempest: if you're a fan of Shakespeare, or a fan of Helen Mirren. Full Review

The special effects are intrusive and anything but magical and the text is rather curiously edited. But it's worth seeing for Mirren. Full Review

Julie Taymor has a theatre director's idea of how movies work. That's not a compliment.

[The actors] speak the language beautifully, finding nuances of humor, feeling and fantasy packed into the prose and poetry of the script.

Rating: 2/5 -- With the exception of Ben Whishaw - who with the help of some imaginative CGI and his own beautiful verse-speaking - the rest of the actors mouth the lines without much élan. Full Review

... something about The Tempest just didn't work for me. When I see Taymor's name on a film I'm expecting something grand and beautifully fantastic, and this just fell a little flat. Full Review

Product Description:

Across the Universe's Julie Taymor shakes up Shakespeare with her adaptation of THE TEMPEST, retrofitting the fantastical tale with a female lead, casting Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren in what is usually the male role of Prospero. The storyline follows the newly coined Prospera (Mirren), an exiled magician who uses her powers to call upon a tempest to bring her enemies to the island she's been forced to call home, not knowing that it will bring a suitor to her daughter, Miranda (Felicity Jones). The Miramax/Touchstone release also stars David Strathairn, Djimon Hounsou, Russell Brand, Alfred Molina, and Ben Wishaw.
