Editorial Reviews

They stand today as testaments to the glory and grandeur of Ancient Rome. But what outrageous lewd and murderous acts helped build and sustain the imperial monuments? There were splendid arenas where no form of torture was deemed too cruel...Places of worship where the Gods were frequently honored with shocking ritualistic sacrifices. Pleasure palaces where wanton sexual depravity was not only accepted but encouraged. In INCREDIBLE MONUMENTS OF ROME we will expose the men responsible for these imposing structures and what they symbolized in their world. Find out what enourmous egos fueld their drive to build bigger and better monuments and at what human cost. INCREDIBLE MONUMENTS OF ROME answers the probing questions about the masterminds behind an Empire that dominated the Western world for thousands of years...and the testimony to their greatness.

This was a well balanced DVD. Mixed with history of every monument, and some modern day video. I am pleased with my purchase.

The dvd came with poor audio quality and without has-been-advertised subtitles.

I was worried that this would only focus on the coliseum. That was the first "act," but they did cover other places in Ancient Rome. This work speaks of Roman culture and history, not just architecture. Architectural purists may dislike it, but fans of "I, Claudius" or "Gladiator" should learn something.

I still don't like the "Ancient Mysteries" narration style where they ask a question and then answer it. Just say what you have to say and don't just speak to fill up space, Mr. Spock! They interview a scholar who has a Condi Rice- or Elton John-style teeth gap. She never states why she doesn't try to close it. At one point, Nimoy gives a timeline of the world at approximately 350 BC, but most of the monuments mentioned here were made in 200 or 300AD, with some discussion of events after Rome's fall.

At one point, Mr. Spock tells the story of Remus and Romulus, but it had nothing to do with these buildings. Again, it's space filler. But still, some of these buildings are just parking lots now, so you and the documentary makers have to use your imagination.

This did make me want to visit Rome. It is easy to forget that Rome was a major center of empire; it became a religious place in more recent times.
