Despite all the hype that surrounded it at the time, it's actually a pretty fair adaptation of the tragic play. Bates and Carter give the best performances in the film, though Gibson pulls off the title role surprisingly well. The major miscasting of Close as Gertrude hampers the proceedings a bit, and the settings are a bit too claustrophobic to handle at times, but it stays true in many ways to the bard. It's definitely worth a look.
