Contrast between two different movies versions of Hamlet : LUSENET : Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet : One Thread

Can any one help me contrast bewteen the Branagh movie version and the Zeffirelli version on how Hamlet and Laertes both try to get revenge for their father's death?

i find Zeffirelli's version of hamlet to be that of an "action man" version. the two revenge their fathers deaths in a violentnon mannerous way. branahgh however delievers a more subtle revengence. this can be seen in the tone and pitch of speecha nd the lack of violent actions towards claudius when laertes returns.
