Product Description

Braveheart
In an emotionally charged performance, Gibson is William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who uses the steel of his sword and the fire of his intellect to rally his countrymen to liberation from the English occupation of Scotland. Winner of five Oscars® -- Best Picture of 1995, Best Director (Gibson), Best Cinematography, Best Makeup and Best Sound Effects Editing -- Braveheart is "the most sumptuous and involving historical epic since Lawrence of Arabia" (Rod Lurie, Los Angeles Magazine).

Gladiator
A man robbed of his name and his dignity strives to win them back, and gain the freedom of his people, in this epic historical drama from director Ridley Scott. In the year 180, the death of emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) throws the Roman Empire into chaos. Maximus (Russell Crowe) is one of the Roman army's most capable and trusted generals and a key advisor to the emperor. As Marcus' devious son Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) ascends to the throne, Maximus is set to be executed. He escapes, but is captured by slave traders. Renamed Spaniard and forced to become a gladiator, Maximus must battle to the death with other men for the amusement of paying audiences. His battle skills serve him well, and he becomes one of the most famous and admired men to fight in the Colosseum. Determined to avenge himself against the man who took away his freedom and laid waste to his family, Maximus believes that he can use his fame and skill in the ring to avenge the loss of his family and former glory. As the gladiator begins to challenge his rule, Commodus decides to put his own fighting mettle to the test by squaring off with Maximus in a battle to the death. Gladiator also features Derek Jacobi, Connie Nielsen, Djimon Hounsou, and Oliver Reed, who died of a heart attack midway through production.

Braveheart
A stupendous historical saga, Braveheart won five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for star Mel Gibson. He plays William Wallace, a 13th-century Scottish commoner who unites the various clans against a cruel English King, Edward the Longshanks (Patrick McGoohan). The scenes of hand-to-hand combat are brutally violent, but they never glorify the bloodshed. There is such enormous scope to this story that it works on a smaller, more personal scale as well, essaying love and loss, patriotism and passion. Extremely moving, it reveals Gibson as a multitalented performer and remarkable director with an eye for detail and an understanding of human emotion. (His first directorial effort was 1993's Man Without a Face.) The film is nearly three hours long and includes several plot tangents, yet is never dull. This movie resonates long after you have seen it, both for its visual beauty and for its powerful story. --Rochelle O'Gorman

Gladiator
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

There were lots of concerns as to what this bundle was. Taking a chance, I pre-ordered it. It's actually 2 of the sapphire releases bundled together. So if you were to take Braveheart sapphire, remove the paper cover, then take the Gladiator sapphire, remove its paper cover, shrinkwrap the two together, and place it in a single paper cover. This is what you get. You get 2 double disc cases, the movies packaged separately. Not a single 4-disc case. No slim cases.

From what I can tell, the Gladiator version has a copyright of 2010, has a yellow UPC and appears to have the R2 code on the disc itself. This means you also get the re-mastered version, instead of the flawed old one.

Considering Amazon sells each individually for more than the bundle price, this makes a per-movie cost the least I've ever paid for a Sapphire release, and the lowest price I've ever seen for any Sapphire release.

I pre-ordered this 2 pack a few weeks ago and just got it today. I know there were a lot of people who held off on pre-ordering this, because it was unclear if this would include the special features of both movies, or if it would be a new packing of just the movies themselves.

I can confirm that the special features are included. It is a 4 disc set and each movie is in its own packaging. They're not in slim packs, either. What you get is 2 discs for each movie, in the original, full size blu-ray package. They come bundled in a slipcover, which is what you see pictured on Amazon's item description.

And at $18.99, this is cheaper than you could buy either movie individually. A great bargain.

I know some people are interested to know if you got the remastered version of Gladiator. The only sure way to tell is look at the inner ring of disk 1 and look for r1 or r2. R2 is the newer remastered version. All the talk about upc color or missing "2-disc set" wording won't help you in this case. In fact everything indicated that my disc would be the older version on the packaging but when I opened it up it was the remastered version. In fact my special features disc (disc 2) was from the old version so it looks like they just swapped out my disc 1 from the this set for the new one. If you do indeed receive the "bad" version of Gladiator and want to do a swap, Paramount is doing a free exchange program. Just call 323-956-3010 and give them your information.

In this twin-pack you get the same 2-disc, BD cases of the Sapphire Series-version of these movies sold separately at a higher price - no slim cases or anything of the sort. The Braveheart part of this twin-pack is the same old, reference quality version - no point discussing that one - so my review will focus mainly on the confusion of Remastered vs Old (DNR-laden) version of the Gladiator BD.
First of all, you can confirm which version you have with Paramount at 888-889-9456, as opposed to trusting rumours being spread by guessing folks :).

The first thing they ask you is if the UPC label is all yellow (remastered, new version) or white (old version). This seems now also the only necessary "proof" of having the new version - I suppose they don't ship new versions with white UPC anymore.

Also, regarding the alphanumerical sequence on the inside of the back of Disc 1, it can be a number of combos that indicate the new version - not only the B1R2 (remastered) vs B1R1 (old version) - so you are better off just giving them what you have and they will cross check it for you. I have the Remastered version and my disc has "BVDL-103860B1" on it, which is also a CONFIRMED way to tell the remastered version apart from the old one.

Furthermore, there was a mention of the new version having the title "Gladiator" on black letters vs gold letters for the old version - NOT TRUE, as I have a gold-titled BD and it is a remastered copy.

The new version also NO LONGER has the white security sticker at the top of the case. And then there is the "2-Disc Set" above the Paramount Logo at the back (right bottom corner) on the new, remastered version.

And the final test, of course, would be to check if you can see the arrows and catapult ammunition in flight without them disappearing into thin air during the first battle scene of the movie.

Bottom line is, if you are still in doubt, just call Paramount :)

I received my order of the Braveheart / Gladiator [Blu-ray] today.
I'm very excited and at the same time, worried about the non-remastered copy of Gladiator.
I read about the telltale signs of the packaging about UPC / 2 Disc-Set above Logo / Color of the disc - dark grey etc.

However, all the above doesn't matter because I know I got the re-mastered copy with the B1R2 on the backside of the inner ring under DISC 1.

I played the disc and is delighted at how good the picture is on the opening scene. Everything looks perfect.

And for those who liked to know the signs - here's what I got

1. A Yellow UPC
2. A 2-DISC SET above the Paramount logo on the back of casing
3. Light grey disc for both Disc 1 and 2
4. A B1R2 indicated on the underside of DISC 1 <- nothing beats this

For Sapphire discs on both titles at 2 Disc each, its really a bargain! Grab one 1 now!
Couldnt be happier!
