I hate Julia Styles, I hate Josh Hartnett, I hated the acting, I hated the soundtrack, I hated the adaptation (I'm sure Shakespeare would have as well)...and I got into the theatre for free. Othello was not written as a vehicle for teen pop idols and therefore should not be used that way.

The Synopsis for O (2001) 1080p
Tough Coach Duke Goulding leaves nothing untried to lead his almost exclusively white boarding school basketball team, the Hawks, to victory after victory, but his own son Hugo feels his polyvalent technical excellence and tireless efforts -which require using stimulants- are not getting anything like the recognition he deserves, especially when coach gives the best player award to Odin James, the only black teammate, even saying he loves Odin like his own son, who in turn only calls super-rich Michael Cassio to share in the honor. So Hugo, who is liked by everyone, decides to set up the boys who stole his glory, and he knows a cocky adolescent's weak points are his pride and his girl. This Dixie Jago schemes to bring down a black Othello and his Cassio, playing into the poisonous power of jealousy, however badly this also hurts their loved ones and the whole team...

This movie stole two hours of my lifeReviewed byDevilsOF13Vote: 1/10
This movie is one of the worst I have ever seen. I consider it a waste of money and time. The story itself had really little point, and the 10 minute sex-scene made it a stomach turning, revolting nightmare. I suggest to anyone that is considering seeing this, to spend their money elsewhere--a spare toilet seat would be more useful.
In these dark times when it seems like at least 95 % of all the teen-movies that are made are trying to copy "American Pie", this is the kick in the butt that the genre needs.
Shakespeare's classical play Othello has been somewhat rewritten to fit the silverscreen and the 21st century better. The theme of revenge, love and jealousy remains intact but the settings have been changed. Great actors in the three leading roles (Stiles, Phifer, Hartnett) makes this movie feel alive, and the cursing and violence makes it feel even more real. The ending is scary and sad, and it makes you think for a long time after you've seen it.
Along with "Donnie Darko" and "Ghost World", this is one of the best movies aimed at teens I've seen.
