Movie Reviews

A great disappointment
G. Crook | Sydney Australia | 10/14/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"As someone who was actually expecting to receive a dvd which dealt with the Battle of Waterloo,I found the content of this disk infuriatingly shallow,unsatisfying,repetitive and full of inadequate flashbacks and psychological profiles.The description of the battle was dreadfully truncated and misleading.No mention of the rain and its effect for instance.Or the failure of Bonaparte's artillery barrage.
There is not even a picture of the actual battlefield as it is today.
Quite a lot of it survives.I know.I've been there.
Be warned,if you want to know about the battle or the men involved there are plenty of books and Sergei Bondarchuk's film of'WATERLOO'.

"I found this a broader and more in depth story to Napoleons' rise to power after Elba. His psychological profile as a charismatic military leader who took great gambles to become a meglomanic dictator. I also enjoyed the narration and re-enactments, first class.
