Coriolanus

Ralph Fiennes turns director for this dark, modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare's most obscure tragedy. Fiennes plays a Roman general who fights off some rebels, becomes a hero and then finds himself held up for political office. It all goes to hell (mostly because he's a prick), and soon our hotheaded protagonist is vowing revenge against all Rome. There's some good acting here--Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Redgrave and James Nesbitt are among the supporting cast. The script (by Gladiator scribe John Logan) strips away a lot of the dialogue to make room for some high-caliber action movie bloodletting amid Willy the Shake's hard-to-decipher poetry. But the problem remains the basic plot, which lacks sympathetic characters and a compelling story arc. 122 minutes R. (Opens Saturday 5/19)
