Hamlet 2000 was a movie about a young prince of a corporation which was taken over by his own flesh and blood uncle who murdered his father The wife of the murdered king marries the uncle to keep power in the Denmark Corporation Hamlet seemingly drifting towards madness seeks to take justice into his own hands by devising a plan to get revenge for his fathers death Although Hamlet 2000 purports to be a re-stylized version of William Shakespeares Hamlet it draws few parallels to the original Hamlet In fact Hamlet 2000 draws a great deal of contrast to the Hamlet portrayed by Sir Laurence Olivier Hamlet is a young prince whose father has just died He has lapsed into a state of sadness and confusion Hamlet is saddened by the events that are happening in the family into which he was born This is mostly due to the occurrence of his mother marring his dead fathers brother only a month after his death Hamlets dearest friend Horatio saw the ghost of King Hamlet in the building at which they were staying Horatio tells Hamlet about what he has seen and they agree to try to see this ghost the next night The following night arrives and after waiting most of the night King Hamlet finally appears Hamlet has a shocked and confused look about his face as he looks into his father eyes once again Hamlet talks to the Dead King and the King tells young Hamlet of what his brother has done to him He also tells Hamlet that he should seek revenge for his death From these revelations Hamlet plots how he is going to achieve revenge for his fathers death His plot is to appear mad and use it as an explanation in everything he does If successful they wont be suspicious He will be perceived mad and they will look the other way Hamlet doesnt tell anyone about his plot
