Product Description

Director Ridley Scott’s triumphant Gladiator is an unparalleled combination of vivid action and extraordinary storytelling that earned five Oscars® including Best Picture. The Blu-ray presentation will include both the original theatrical version of the film as well as the extended version in 1080p High Definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, as well as English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Korean subtitles. The two-disc set also will feature over four hours of bonus material. essential video

A big-budget summer epic with money to burn and a scale worthy of its golden Hollywood predecessors, Ridley Scott’s Gladiator is a rousing, grisly, action-packed epic that takes moviemaking back to the Roman Empire via computer-generated visual effects. While not as fluid as the computer work done for, say, Titanic, it’s an impressive achievement that will leave you marveling at the glory that was Rome, when you’re not marveling at the glory that is Russell Crowe. Starring as the heroic general Maximus, Crowe firmly cements his star status both in terms of screen presence and acting chops, carrying the film on his decidedly non-computer-generated shoulders as he goes from brave general to wounded fugitive to stoic slave to gladiator hero. Gladiator‘s plot is a whirlwind of faux-Shakespearean machinations of death, betrayal, power plays, and secret identities (with lots of faux-Shakespearean dialogue ladled on to keep the proceedings appropriately “classical”), but it’s all briskly shot, edited, and paced with a contemporary sensibility. Even the action scenes, somewhat muted but graphic in terms of implied violence and liberal bloodletting, are shot with a veracity that brings to mind–believe it or not–Saving Private Ryan, even if everyone is wearing a toga. As Crowe’s nemesis, the evil emperor Commodus, Joaquin Phoenix chews scenery with authority, whether he’s damning Maximus’s popularity with the Roman mobs or lusting after his sister Lucilla (beautiful but distant Connie Nielsen); Oliver Reed, in his last role, hits the perfect notes of camp and gravitas as the slave owner who rescues Maximus from death and turns him into a coliseum star. Director Scott’s visual flair is abundantly in evidence, with breathtaking shots and beautiful (albeit digital) landscapes, but it’s Crowe’s star power that will keep you in thrall–he’s a true gladiator, worthy of his legendary status. Hail the conquering hero! –Mark Englehart

“Have a look at the BD before returning!” 2010-10-20
By Allan Foo Chuan How (Singapore.)
Like many of you, I just received my copy of GLADIATOR BD! My copy is without the Yellow UPC, and without the 2-DISC label above the PARAMOUNT logo on the back of the slip cover. But it also came with the expired $10 Discount Offer on the front of the slip cover. I was contemplating whether to return it, but decided to give it a spin!

Turn out that IT IS the Remastered copy! Skin tone appear natural with good detail, especially Cassius robe and all the armors! None of the airbrush/plastic face as mentioned for the previous disc. The theatrical and extended scenes look identical in detail and color, can’t really tell the different.

So don’t get despair when you receive one without the Yellow UPC (and the expired $10 Discount label)! If it didn’t have the 2-DISC label above the PARAMOUNT loge ON THE BACK OF THE SLIP COVER, give it a spin for a physical check! It just might turn out to be the Remastered copy!

Anyway, there are already report that AMAZON is shipping those with Yellow UPC! One should be fine to order now. I just set through the Extended 171 minutes version, and it was fantastic! Gladiator is one Master Piece of movie making!

“I should have listened” 2010-10-18

Well, Amazon did it to me too – the picture shows the remastered version and I ordered on that basis, but today what do I receive? The original version. Sending it back today for a refund. BestBuy, here I come.

“Amazon still selling old Bluray version” 2010-10-15
By Mr. Neutron (Roseville, CA)
Be careful when ordering this item from Amazon.

Paramount remastered the disc and released a new version in July 2010.

They did not recall the old version and there must a lot of inventory out there.

I checked with Amazon before ordering but still received the old version.

I could have returned the item to Amazon but decided to just exchange the disc with Paramount.

“Correction to previous reviews” 2010-10-14
Yesterday 10/13 I ordered the blu-ray version of Gladiator. It arrived today. For all those wanting to get this BD the version of the disk is the corrected copy with the yellow ISBN tag on the back. It is not the old version with the video issues.
