Gladiator DVD Review
Discover the unparalleled power and glory of Gladiator, a dazzling combination of vivid action and extraordinary storytelling that critics called a "stunning, explosive, breathtaking epic!" --Bill Diehl, ABC Radio Network
Masterfully directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner), Gladiator features a riveting performance from Academy Award-nominated star Russell Crowe, hailed by Newsweek as "a genuine larger-than-life hero!"
Note: Two-Disc Set.
Great sound performance from such an incredibly great movie. The opening scene against the Germanic Barbarians is enough to give this movie a 5-thumber. IT IS AWESOME…nuff said.
The DVD video performance was flawless. From the gladiator battles to the recreation of great Rome, this movie is a feast for authentic sights. Getting the Best Costumes at the Academy Awards helps out in this category, also.
