The character of Tybalt is so interesting in this film adaptation. He is a cross-dressing tough guy who cares for his friend Romeo. Actually Baz Luhrmann (the director) plays up Tybalt's love for Romeo. Many productions of this play rely on Tybalt's homoerotic (sexual) love for Romeo. In the film, Tybalt is not only an extroverted partier, but violent and vengeful when his Romeo is threatened. In the film, much of his violent outbursts seem to reflect his frustration with unrequited love (Romeo does not love him in the same way) as his hatred of Tybalt and the Capulets.
