Ian Douglas: Very modern and up to date. Lots missing from the script, including the grave diggers. I like Mel Gibson's version, which played as a black comedy, as that is how I interpreted the original. This version is dark, played as a thriller. The writers went to creative lengths to find ways around some of the tricky-to-modernise bits, and generally succeeded. Some holes in the plot (R + G's letter), but in general, this version should be more accessible to a younger audience, if they can tolerate the wordiness.
