Spartacus (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray)
Enhance your purchase
The rebellious Thracian Spartacus, born and raised a slave, is sold to Gladiator trainer Batiatus. After weeks of being trained to kill for the arena, Spartacus turns on his owners and leads the other slaves in rebellion. As the rebels move from town to town, their numbers swell as escaped slaves join their ranks. Under the leadership of Spartacus, they make their way to southern Italy, where they will cross the sea and return to their homes. Meanwhile, in Rome, the slave revolt has become a deciding factor in the power struggle between two senators: the republican Gracchus and the militarist Crassus, each of whom sees the fortunes of the rebellion as the key to his own rise to power or humiliating defeat. As the two statesmen attempt to aid, hinder and manipulate the rebels for their own benefit, Spartacus and his followers press on toward freedom.

This is the restored and uncut version of the film. The video and audio is as good as you get for a 50 year old movie. Don't expect anything groundbreaking. The extra features are some what limited. The highlights include 2 commentary tracks and a 24 minute long interview with Peter Ustinov, promotional materials, storyboards, deleted scenes and a 1960 documentary The Hollywood Ten. They should have made this a 3 disc set to give more extra content. Peter Ustinov interview and commentary tracks are the best part of it. They give enough insight in the production, behind the scenes and the overall politics of Hollywood. Overall this is a great purchase if you love historical epics from Classic Hollywood or are big Kirk Douglas, Peter Ustinov or Stanley Kubrick fan.
