Jeff Beck of We Got This Covered wrote, "There have been several attempts to take the plays of William Shakespeare and contemporize them. Some have been incredibly successful like Baz Luhrmann’s great adaptation of Romeo and Juliet or Kenneth Branagh’s brilliant take on Hamlet which moves the story to the 19th century. Others have not been quite as successful. I have personally seen two versions of Macbeth that have attempted to bring the story into modern day, both of which tried to use similar ways of doing so, but ultimately failed. Now we are faced with a modernized version of Coriolanus, a play that most people have most likely never read and probably don’t even know what it’s about."
