Product Description

Gladiator picked up five Academy Awards® and tells the story of Maximus Decimus (played by Russell Crowe), a Roman general who is betrayed by the corrupt prince Commodus. Captured and enslaved along the outer fringes of the Roman Empire, Maximus rises through the ranks of the gladiatorial arena to avenge the murders of his family and his emperor.
This format defining release is presented on two BD 50 dual-layer discs and includes 11 hours of extra content. The first disc will include both the theatrical and extended version of the film, audio commentary, deleted scenes and the Vision of Elysium: Topic Portal, a new U-Control feature that allows viewers to tag moments of interest throughout the film and create a "shopping list" of topics to learn about in the supplements on disc two. The second disc also includes Strength and Honour: Creating the World of Gladiator, the definitive documentary on the origin, product and impact of the film.

From Amazon.co.uk

A big-budget summer epic with money to burn and a scale worthy of its golden Hollywood predecessors, Ridley Scott's Gladiator is a rousing, grisly, action-packed epic that takes moviemaking back to the Roman Empire via computer-generated visual effects. While not as fluid as the computer work done for, say, Titanic, it's an impressive achievement that will leave you marveling at the glory that was Rome, when you're not marveling at the glory that is Russell Crowe. Starring as the heroic general Maximus, Crowe firmly cements his star status both in terms of screen presence and acting chops, carrying the film on his decidedly non-computer-generated shoulders as he goes from brave general to wounded fugitive to stoic slave to gladiator hero. Gladiator's plot is a whirlwind of faux-Shakespearean machinations of death, betrayal, power plays, and secret identities (with lots of faux-Shakespearean dialogue ladled on to keep the proceedings appropriately "classical"), but it's all briskly shot, edited, and paced with a contemporary sensibility. Even the action scenes, somewhat muted but graphic in terms of implied violence and liberal bloodletting, are shot with a veracity that brings to mind--believe it or not--Saving Private Ryan, even if everyone is wearing a toga. As Crowe's nemesis, the evil emperor Commodus, Joaquin Phoenix chews scenery with authority, whether he's damning Maximus's popularity with the Roman mobs or lusting after his sister Lucilla (beautiful but distant Connie Nielsen); Oliver Reed, in his last role, hits the perfect notes of camp and gravitas as the slave owner who rescues Maximus from death and turns him into a coliseum star. Director Scott's visual flair is abundantly in evidence, with breathtaking shots and beautiful (albeit digital) landscapes, but it's Crowe's star power that will keep you in thrall--he's a true gladiator, worthy of his legendary status. Hail the conquering hero! --Mark Englehart --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Unreserved five stars for PQ on the remastered edition (the AQ was always excellent).

Now what you really want to know: how can you be sure you're getting the new edition, and not the shoddy first release? As of 9 September, NBC Universal UK have confirmed three things:

1. They have started shipping the new edition to retailers, but it's up to retailers as to when they sell it.
2. The new edition has a "Pocket-Blu" logo on the back, comprising the pocket BLU symbol and the words "pocket BLU"; this is the sole distinguishing mark. If it's there, you have the new edition; if not, the old.
3. The combined Robin Hood/Gladiator release includes the new edition of Gladiator.

Happy hunting!

Matthew

Gladiator is a classic film, and this Blu Ray release brings it to life like never been seen before. I own the DVD of the original and extended editions, and I was shocked at the quality of the image and sound that Blu Ray gives. Some of the scenes looked surprisingly different because of the extra clarity, and the difference is breathtaking. I particularly like that this product includes the extended edition of the film in full HD, and these extra scenes just fill in a few gaps that were present in the cinema release. I was originally sceptical about the improvement that Blu Ray could give over traditional DVDs, but after seeing Gladiator I am converted. Absolutely stunning.

Verdict:
This film on Blu Ray is nearly perfect, a good picture with an outstanding soundtrack. The soundtrack is perfect with a fantastic music. The picture has a natural but discrete noise.
Thanks to its excellent picture, we can see much more details about the battle, the fights, Rome and its magnificent buildings, monuments and of course the coliseum which looks very massive, imposing in this ancient and highly detailed city.
High Definition picture means details we are not supposed to see !!
- We can clearly during the first battle against the Prussians, 1 guy seen not fighting but smiling and walking in the wrong direction !! (9 min 44 sec), a funny take !!
- The stunt double of Russel Crowe falling from his horse during this same battle (10 min, 25 sec).
- The following day, Maximus goes to see his horse, a crew man wearing jeans standing in the background behind the horse can be seen hiding.

Format: DVD
When I first heard about this I slightly cringed wondering if the modern day take on an "epic" style film would work. Fortunately, despite some questionable historical decisions (female gladiators being a non event it never happened) and the film isn't based on any historical events (unlike Spartacus) Ridley Scott has delivered a pretty good film.

Plot wise General Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) is loyal to Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) and his chosen successor, however the natural son of Marcus Aurelius, Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) ends the life of the sick Emperor upon hearing Meridius is to be the next Emperor and not himself.

Commodus asks for the loyalty of Meridius, but he refuses and suffers the fate of having his family killed by the new Emperor. Meridius escapes and returns to Spain to find his wife and son having been slain already, after he buries them he is captured by a roaming slave caravan and thrust into the world of being a Gladiator (hence the title) The rest of the film shows the struggle between the former General and the new Emperor ultimately concluding in a "Mano-a-mano" one on one hand to hand battle at the end.

Cast wise near enough top notch really, the gritty/macho role suits Crowe down to the ground, Joaquin Phoenix also make a cunning devious and sneaky young Emperor. We have the last film appearance of Oliver Reed as Antonius Proximothe Gladiator trainer/owner (who died during filming in Malta after a heavy drinking session - computer generated work was done to complete the production of his character ), Harris has a smaller role but played sincerely.

Format: DVD
Ridley Scott's 2000 film Gladiator was Hollywoods first major attempt at a "sword and sandals" epic in decades, and it's initial release received both critical and public acclaim.

From beginning to end, Scott's eye for detail produces a visual feats of the film makers art. Digital wizardry brings ancient Rome to life on a scale and grandeur never seen before and a West Sussex Forestry Commission plantation was reduced to ashes, having been bombed and burned in the re-creation of a major battle between Rome and Germanic barbarian hordes.

Over a long career, Ridley has often explored war, violence and mayhem in a graphic, brutal way in many of his films. Gladiator is no exception, with the camera often getting "up and personal" with the blood, guts and gore. The attention to detail paid by the film makers in re-creating the Colosseum's gladiatorial fights as authentically as possible is reason enough, if you need one, to see this film.

Hollywood has never let historical truths stand in the way of a good story, so although some inspiration for a few characters are drawn directly from historical fact, the plot details and Maximus himself are pure fiction.

On the whole, the film's cast give good solid performances, with some flashes of pure brilliance. Indeed, Russell Crow's portrayal of Maximus earnt him the best actor Academy Award in 2000.

So how good is Gladiator? Visually, this is a modern day epic with plenty of action, that will entertain time and again so is worth the effort adding to your film collection.
