  • Excerpt: Even more disappointing, this is one of my favorite movies, and while it's an improvement over the DVD releases, the over-processed image is plagued with edge enhancement and too much digital manipulation. Normally in Ultimate Demos, I like to highlight the best of what Blu-ray brings to the table, but in this installment, I'll point out video scenes that are anything but ultimate, although I will also give kudos to the audio when warranted.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: There's no denying 'Gladiator' is a great movie. Ridley Scott's masterfully directed, impeccably mounted epic never fails to thrill the senses, and even with a controversial video transfer, it's still an exhilarating Blu-ray experience. If digital enhancements annoy you like nails on a chalkboard, it might be best to rent 'Gladiator' and see whether the transfer's imperfections exceed your tolerance level before plunking down cash for a purchase.

Gladiator Review

DoBlu
2 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Gladiator opens with a massive battle between the Romans and the last of a barbarian horde. It is seven minutes in, and director Ridley Scott has the audience in his hands. The battle is huge, with catapults flinging flaming ammunition at a nearly defenseless army. Swords clash, blood flows freely, and the intensity does not let up until all foes are defeated. Then Gladiator switches gears.

Gladiator Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
4 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Gladiator presents a rather simply story -- one man's quest for revenge -- but adds plenty of combat, several intriguing political layers, and a romantic subtext along the way. Revenge is a tale as old as time, a staple of fiction -- and history -- that seems to bring with it an everlasting allure that, in the right hands, and with the right script, and the right backdrop, makes for some of the best movies out there. Gladiator is no exception.

Gladiator

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: While it's all grand opera, and driven by sweeping gestures and pompous, overwritten dialogue, it is prone to plain silliness - especially in granting us the big showdown at the close. But the sheer dynamism of the action, coupled with Hans Zimmer's lavish score and the forcefield of Crowe, still makes this a fiercesome competitor in the summer movie stakes.

  • Conclusion: Gladiator oli ensimmäinen DVD-elokuva jonka koskaan ostin, jopa ennen kuin minulla oli edes siihen sopivaa soitinta. Elokuva oli päässyt tekemään vahvan vaikutuksen, ja se oli aivan pakko saada hyllyä koristamaan. Nyt vuosia on päässyt menemään muutama, ja leffa on julkaistu kotimarkkinoille uudestaan jo parikin kertaa. Universalin satavuotisjuhla antaa nyt syyn vielä yhteen lisää. Aika on päässyt hieman järsimään vuoden 2000 parhaan Oscar-elokuvan nurkkia.

Gladiator - Special Edition (2-disc)

component.se
19 November 2009
  • Summary: En fantastisk film har nått blu-ray. En ljudmix det helt enkelt inte går att värja sig mot och ett minst sagt omfattande bonusmaterial är glädjeämnena medan bilden lämnar alldeles för mycket att önska. När får vi en re-release?

Test Blu-Ray : Gladiator

hdnumerique.com
25 February 2008
  • Summary: Avant d’effectuer une critique technique de ce Blu-Ray Disc, il nous a semblé intéressant d’aborder un aspect important qui sans doute permet d’expliquer l’attrait généré par ce grand succès ciné-populaire. Pourquoi ce film – et nous sommes nombreux – suscite neuf ans après sa sortie un intérêt si particulier, une émotion unique lorsque re-visionné et qui le range parmi tous les « grands films » qui s’imposent comme inévitables dans une bluraythèque ?
