Movie Reviews

So what if this Hugh isn't the *real* Hugh (Sean Pertwee)?
AvidHiker | Florida | 02/19/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"... Brother Cadfael is *still* the most unique, complex, fascinating detective out there. Add to that the endlessly treacherous and intriguing setting, and you've found a winner.The production standard is incredible; visually, it's an impressive effort and very realistic. It manages to be grand and gritty at once.The acting is likewise superb. I could never have pictured a better Cadfael than the sterling Sir Derek Jacobi.The only reason I gave this set four stars rather than five is that this particular Cadfael series is not my favorite of the four. All of them are worth owning, however."
Cadfael my Son
C. A. Luster | Burke, VA USA | 03/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the best sets in the series. Although I think Sean Pertwee in the first set was a better sheriff, this group of stories is incredible. We see consoling, love, intrigue, lechery, murder, highway bandits, rape, kidnapping, and a host of other acts of love and violence. Some true chivalry, an evil monk but not the one that is accused, and mysterious disappearances of people make this set great to watch. The set contains many sub stories in each story that makes them all the more interesting. We find out a piece of the puzzle in Cadfael's love life while he was on the Crusades. The set does not contain much as far as extra's but the series alone is well worth the price. The quality is comparable with the rest in the series and quite adequate."
Good series gets a bad transfer

"I love the Cadfael series but this transfer to DVD looks like they took it off a second hand tape. Beware!"
Jacobi does it again!

"These videos are extremely well done. I learned more about the post crusade era in the Catholic Church then I would have in any history class. Derek Jacobi is a superb actor, and his talents are highlighted in these entertaining and educational videos. I would recommend these to anyone with an interest in religion, history, or science, or to any one who loves a good mystery."
