- The Guardian (Michael Billington): Elsinore has a hugely living presence in the production.
- London Independent (David Lister). A world where everything is watched and noted.
- Daily Telegraph (Charles Spencer). Kinnear captures the humanity, humour, pain and multi-layered complexity of the role.
- The Express (Neil Norman). Hamlet is a kind of uber-geek who could happily captain the winning team on University Challenge.
- This is London (Henry Hitchings). Kinnear refreshes the key speeches.
- New York Times (Matt Wolf). This is a Hamlet who knows how to use language as its own kind of cloak, until those moments when grief takes over and he succumbs to a silent scream.
