Superbit version much better,
This review is from: Gladiator -- Superbit [DVD]  (DVD)Hopefully Superbit DVDs will take off! When I bought Gladiator Superbit, I was amazed by the level of clarity of the picture. If you imagine the shock the first time you saw a DVD over a video, you'll probably get 70% of the same shock this time. You don't realise the [visual] noise that exists in DVDs until you see a Superbit. As larger and larger screens come into people's homes (I myself own a projector), the Superbit DVDs will really come into their own.
People should buy this if they are interested in the film, not in owning extras. The resolution and sound quality are the USPs for the Superbit range - for Gladiator the change is not as dramatic as it is for older films, I'm sure. For example, getting DTS sound on Lawrence Of Arabia is a major bonus...
I also think Gladiator is a great film by the way!
