Bronston's greatest production!

by Jeff on 6/3/2008

Considering that GLADIATOR ripped off its plot rather unashamedly, it is amazing how influential this film is more than 40 years after it died a horrible death at the box office. Made independently at a cost of $25 million (around $200 million today) with an impeccable cast, brilliant direction and jaw-dropping set, this film has aged very well and, in many ways seems refreshingly modern. You have incredible crowd shots (when 5,000 extras really WERE 5,000 extras with no CGI-take that, Ridley Scott), a chariot race/duel to rival the one in BEN-HUR and one of the most majestic film scores EVER along with all the other goodies. The first time I saw this film was on a cable station almost 30 years ago and even on a 19-inch TV with glorious phonic sound it still blew me away. In widescreen with Dolby it is just astounding. Get this disc-you will not regret it. Now, where is 55 DAYS AT PEKING?
