Customer Review

on 23 October 2005
When I saw this movie in the cinema I liked it. I liked the grand shots and the broad camera sweeps that are used throughout. And although this is not Orlando Bloom's best performance, it is not bad and is compensated for by great work from Eric Bana, Sean Bean and the brilliant Peter O'Toole.
One thing I dislike about this movie is the soundtrack. At some points it is fantastic with a heart warming score to accompany the beautiful images. But when something bad happens or at other times, the score is ruined by what can only be described as a moaning woman. Apart from that the film is very good with brilliant special effects which are convincing and not obvious.
So when I place the second disc in my DVD player, I was hoping for some in depth documentary detailing how the film was made. Unfortunately I didn't get that. Instead on the second disc there are three mini documentaries which barely cover the basics. The first one does include some interesting information on the action sequences and the effects doc. has some good stuff on the sweeping camera scenes, but if you are used to the feature length documentaries from The Lord of the Rings or the new Gladiator DVD, then you will be disappointed. Also on the second disc is a 'Galler of the Gods' an interactive museum where you click on a god and get info on them. Also included is the trailer.
Thats it on the special features front, which is slightly disappointing and may well have some fans feeling a little ripped off.
All in all, the film is brilliant and the 156 mins fly by, but if you are not really bothered with special features, go for the one disc edition, you aren't missing anything.
