Richard Loncraine takes Shakespeare's classic tale of treachery, Richard III, and transplants it to the 1930s.

Richard breaks the 4th wall as much as deadpool

Pretty good movie, though the authentic vernacular is a bit painful to translate on the fly.

And for the props and cast involved; at times a very epic war movie for the day.

Suffers for being shakespear though, who really has not aged well.

Richard the 111

I have always loved this Shakespeare play;but Ian McKellan's portrayal of Richard
is the best I've seen.Backed up by a great all star cast including Robert Downey Jnr;Annette Benning;Dominic West;you cannot fail to be drawn in by his performance.
Love every minute of it.
