Classic! Great price for a brand new release (released yesterday) - and an amazing film!

They trained him to kill for their pleasure... But they trained him a little too well...

This presentation of the powerful film classic features an additional five minutes cut from the films original release, plus the original overture and extended soundtrack.

Director Stanley Kubrick tells the tale of Spartacus (Kirk Douglas), the bold gladiator slave, and Varinia (Jean Simmons), the woman who believed in his cause. Challenged by the power-hungry General Crassus (Laurence Olivier), Spartacus is forced to face his convictions and the power of the Roman Empire at it's glorious height.

The inspirational account of one man's eternal struggle for freedom, Spartacus combines history with spectacle to create a moving drama of love and commitment.

Spartacus? No not me...thought you said Sporticus.

Don't think this was released yesterday, i have it on betamax. If you have waited 50 years for a blu ray version, i'm sure you can wait another 6 months when it will be a fiver, grandad.

I have this on HD DVD and would say that don't expect anything too great with the picture quality. Both for grain and colours...

It's an uncut version [on the HD DVD] with footage from 'fully restored film'. Audio on the BR is full lossless compared to a much meaner DD Plus 5.1 on the HD DVD.

I know it's old, but compared to something like the Wizard of Oz, it shows what really can be done these days. Just fabulous! bluray.highdefdigest.com/138…tml
