Baz Luhrmann keeps to the spirit of Shakespeare's tragedy in his new film, "Romeo & Juliet", but adds some unusual and occasionally bizarre effects.
Some work and some do not.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=18-"Romeo and Juliet";


The mythical Verona Beach is a seedy netherworld ruled by two crime families, the Montegues and the Capulets.
Romeo's Gang of Surfer Punks has Mercutio--a large black transvestite--played by Harold Perriuneau who rumbles with the macho capulets led by Tybalt-a sneering John Leguizamo.

RUNS=:21
OUT Q=couple if its something.


The love story itself is what works best due to a convincing portrayal of the lovelorn Romeo by Leonardo DeCaprio, and an absolutely luminous Clare Dane as the lovely Juliet.
These star-crossed lovers show real joy and anguish.
The rest of the movie tries too hard with too much of everything...sound, music, explosions, gunfights, quick cuts, and flashy camera work.
The language is sometimes difficult to decipher as well with everything else that is going on.
"Romeo & Juliet" gets a "B". It's a laudable attempt that doesn't quite work, but DeCaprio and Danes make it worth a look.
