Gladiator (Two-Disc Collector's

From Amazon.co.uk

Ridley Scott's glossy historical epic Gladiator revitalised the classic sword 'n' sandal genre, bringing both a modern pop-culture sensibility and state-of-the-art computer-generated special effects to what had seemed like a worn-out formula. Essentially a remake of Anthony Mann's stodgy 1964 Fall of the Roman Empire, Gladiator also borrows heavily from Saving Private Ryan in its stunning opening sequence, and employs Ridley's brother Tony Scott's rapid-fire editing style for the remarkably staged Colosseum fights. The overall effect is a hugely impressive but emotionally empty spectacle complemented by Hans Zimmer's bestselling but derivative score. --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

This remastered bluray of gladiator has really improved the overall look and feel of this modern day classic for me.

I've watched it a few times now and compared it to the original release.

I'm no expert but the original was subpar in picture quality for such a great movie on bluray. Thankfully its all good with this one! The contrast has been tweeked throughout which has resulted in a slightly warmer picture and fine details have been enhanced dramatically such as damage to battle armour, armour detail, skin textures and facial pores are visible now as are the finer details in scenes throughout the movie from architecture to the crowds and battle scenes which does only add to the atmosphere. The scenes shot in darker extremes are much clearer in this remadter, finer details again picked up on. I think people have previously mentioned that the mysteriously disappearing flaming arrows and fireballs in the opening battle against the Germanic horde have been remastered brilliantly so you can now follow the flames right to their intended targets! Ouch!

Audio quality here is very good too. If lucky enough to own a nifty surround sound system, whack it on because you'll be ducking whooshing flaming arrows, explosions, dodging the clank of swords in battle (or buy some foam rubber ones to join in with the kids!) to the more quiet non battle scenes where you can close your eyes and imagine you're actually in a horse driven cart as the wooden wheels squeek, creak and hobble over stony ground! The clarity of the spoken word is also spot on as of course is the soundtrack.

A great movie made even better. Visually breathtaking and audio wise very good indeed. A must have in your bluray collection.

Highly enjoyable! Strong cast of actors, such as Oliver Reed, Richard Harris, Derek Jacobi. And modern actors like Russell Crowe. If you enjoy a fine dialogue with action scenes then this is for you! Great costumes, settings and music score too! AC
