DVD Print Quality Simply Outstanding,
This review is from: Cleopatra (3 Disc Special Edition)  [DVD] (DVD)
For a film that is now more than forty years old this DVD is simply outstanding. The film itself is contained on two DVDs and the extra features can be found on the third DVD. But if you view the film you will feel that this has just been produced, such is the quality. Sure the special effects are not there, so obvious in modern films like the 2004 epic Troy, but everything is done on a grand scale. The film remains the most expensive film ever made and you can understand why. Whereas today many of the grand sets would be done on computers, 20th Century Fox had to produce everything as a real set. So when you see Cleopatra's grand entrance to Rome this is the real deal, not pixels. The colours are vivid, the sound very powerful and the acting of the two main stars - Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton - is highly charged. Impressive historical entertainment.

What am I talking about? When we purchased this film it didn't have two discs as you claim - it was a THREE DISC DVD set eight years ago - so it had three DVDs not two. Since that time I'm sure other releases have come and gone with only two discs but the one we purchased had three. Even Amazon's review title states: 'This review is from: Cleopatra (3 Disc Special Edition)  [DVD] (DVD)' Very often Amazon will put reviews onto other releases of the same film to increase the number of films.
