No English subtitles??? Why?
on 18 April 2016
I was delighted to receive "The Fall Of The Roman Empire" - the Blu Ray version. The sound and the print are gorgeous and it has a host of extra features and the acting is superb. It carries a deep analysis how the mighty Roman Empire must have disintegrated over a period of time.
The only issue I was bitterly disappointed was that the blu ray version did NOT carry English subtitles - subtitles are a must for any blu ray issue, because most of the viewers of old classic movies are senior citizens who are often hard of hearing and cannot follow the dialogue distinctly. I have a Korean copy of this movie which has English subtitles. I was planning to discard that copy, but now, I'll have to retain it.
The blu ray version actually deserves a 5 star rating, but because of the lack of this basic requirement (subtitles), I a compelled to reduce my rating to 3 stars.
