Romeo + Juliet

Romeo + Juliet ★★½

Visually stunning and engaging, but narratively lacking.
The silly nature of the film makes any of the more emotional scenes come off as a dull and lifeless.
Despite some beautiful shots and set design this movie is a mess, turning the 'tragedy' of their forbidden love into emotionless, over-stylized silliness.
It's too bad, a modernized retelling of this story could have been really great.
