Much Ado about Something
My opinion about the movie, Much Ado about Nothing, is that it was a very good movie. This movie had just about everything that makes a movie good. It had drama, romance, action, and most importantly it had comedy. This movie is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Even though they spoke in Shakespearean language, the character’s expressions were enough to make anyone rollover and laugh. The cast of the movie was well organized, because every one of them played the part as if the movie was written for them. Much Ado about Nothing is a very good movie because it is dramatic, romantic, and funny.
The drama in this movie was very thick and plentiful. Especially when the Prince’s brother, Don John, was trying to stop Claudio from marrying his love Hero. The trouble he caused was very sinister. He put people’s lives in danger without even caring about their feelings. The tension between Benedick and Beatrice also setup some drama, which subsequently made the movie very enjoyable and funny. The battle between man and woman was well represented by the two characters.
This movie was very romantic. This is the type of movie that I would love to take my girlfriend to go watch. It touches the romantic side of anyone who watches it, but it isn’t too cheesy either so guys will like it. Claudio and Hero’s love for each other made the movie very romantic. It seemed as if they would die for each other’s love if it came to it. Yet, they weren’t always in each other’s faces kissing and hugging and this made the romance scenes bearable to watch. Though, the romance affair between Benedick and Beatrice made the movie well worth seeing, because it was one of the funniest parts of the movie. Their love affair was more like a struggle then it was a romance.
The cast for this movie was great also. It seemed as if the roles were specifically written for the cast. Denzel Washington played a very good Prince, and as well did Robert Sean Leonard playing young Claudio. Michael Keaton’s roll as Dogberry was the funniest character in the movie. He seemed to relish in playing the greasy and dirty constable. One of the best actors that I think made the characters come alive was probably Kenneth Thompson who played Benedick. His acting was superior to the others because it seemed like he was very into his role. His character stood out from all the others.
In conclusion, I think that this movie was very good movie in all. It had a lot of things that didn’t make it boring once. It’s got drama, romance, action, and comedy. All of these things can usually make a movie worth seeing. I liked the movie because it was one of the funniest movies I have seen in awhile, and I will always recommend it to my friends. The cast who played the rolls was very good, and they made the story come alive. Therefore, I think Much Ado about Nothing is a very good movie because it is dramatic, romantic, and funny.
