Better than a Blockbuster
Robert L. Jenks | Madison, WI, United States | 07/15/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)
"With a lower budget, no big name actors and only an hour, these small movies are better than the last ten blockbusters I've seen. Not so much documentaries as dramatic depictions of the decision making and consequences of these leaders giving a believable version of what made them "tick." The acting, writing and direction are startlingly good with only the least intrusive narration. Think low-budbet David Lean. I deducted one star only because they should have been given more time and resourses. I only hope a second series is given exactly that."
I love it!

"Thrill to lavish, all-action dramatic spectacles based on the lives of six men who left their marks on the world-from Spartacus, the gladiator who brought Rome to its knees, to the audacious military genius, Napoleon. Absorbing drama and CGI effects reveal the motives, force of will, genius, courage and greed that drove these men to achieve what no one else had dared."
Includes the Hannibal biopic with Alexander Siddig

"The first two disks include 6 one-hour docudramas, spectacularly produced, about Spartacus, Attila the Hun, The Shogun, Richard the Lionheart, Cortes, and Napolean. Disk 3, as bonus features, include a 90-minute docudrama about Hannibal starring Alexander Siddig (available at last in the US), a one-hour doc about Hannibal, and a one-hour docudrama about Genghis Khan. Production values are very high. This set is a great value for the history-lover."
