Now, let's talk about the actual play. Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" is a timeless love story, but it is also a very intelligent play. It uses puns, simile, metaphor, imagery and hyperbole, all written in incredibly picky Iambic Pentameter form. The play, as I mentioned before, does not honor this in the least. Sure, they both have some of the same script and the same storyline (with a few changes), but the modern version makes it all seem like a joke and doesn't take the whole love story thing seriously.
Of course, even the worst moments in life have silver linings, and for me it was the endingof this story. Sadly, I can't really say much more about it without giving it away. But, without giving spoilers I can say that this ending created more suspense and even more drama. Taking everything into consideration, I would not recommend it to anyone I know (unless it's someone I hate and want to punish), if you want to watch a movie based on "Romeo and Juliet" then you should watch a version that actually seems like something Shakespeare would be proud of.
