Have owned it on DVD for many a year, picture quality was pretty good so until now did
not see the need to upgrade, however, a limited-edition version of this classic in which Rod Steiger is outstanding seemed too good to pass-up on.
With a neat booklet filled with how the film was put together coupled with many a picture from the movie along with 3 double-sided post-card size collectables and a double-sided poster the package is good value for money.
The picture upgrade from DVD to Blu-ray also very good.
In April of 1814 'Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte' (Rod Steiger) has suffered his first defeat during the
Now four countries have committed their Army's to confront him on French soil, he is forced to accept
exile on the small Island of Elba in the Mediterranean Sea along with a relatively small force of 1000
soldiers, the following year he leaves the Island with his small force to invade his homeland.
King Louis XVIII orders one of Napoleon's former Generals to intercept and capture the former Emperor,
however instead of stopping him the force that was sent to stop him embraces his return.
'Napoleon' almost immediately considers the prospect of facing 'The Duke of Wellington' (Christopher
Plummer) who had been a thorn in his side before being exiled.
'Napoleon' plans to quickly defeat and drive back 'General Blucher's' Prussian army and the face a much
weakened 'Wellington' in battle.
A battle that neither side could afford to lose (Through History Generals have made fundamental errors
that have changed the coarse of History)
The story is told from both sides of the divide....
It is a truly glorious and brutal spectacle with the battle scenes shown in depth with well staged and brilliantly
filmed action.......The Battle of Waterloo' 18th June 1815
This surely one of 'Rod Steiger's' finest roles as the French Emperor' alongside the superbly performed role
as The Duke of Wellington' by 'Christopher Plummer'
Have watched this several times down the years, always time well spent in my view.
Plus the extras included are fantastic for any film collector, I can not recommend this enough.
It has always amazed me how underated a film this is. My kids will be subjected to it as I was as a kid and I just hope they grow to appreciate it as much as I have come to.
