Editorial Reviews

Brand new, factory sealed, fully licensed DVD manufactured in Brazil. NTSC format. Playable on any North American DVD player. High quality widescreen color image. Original English dialog with optional subtitles in Portuguese. Portuguese subtitles do not appear unless turned on and they can be easily turned off. The following is a review which appears in Amazon for the VHS edition. "I think this is one of the best-ever medieval war films. Charlton Heston's role (Chrysagon Delacroix) is almost perfect: Rosemary Forsyth (Bronwyn) is mysterious and gorgeous. Bors (played by Richard Boone) is taciturn, rough and also unforgettable. Draco (Guy Stockwell, Heston's insanely jealous younger brother) is my favorite character. Other than a few visual (technical) gaffs - like arrows bouncing off the siege tower draw bridge, and using modern-looking recurve bows - the armor and weapons and fighting is very satisfying. The mixture of Christianity in the presence of the old unforgotten Celtic religion is a tense ingredient that adds depth to what is essentially a simple story of "boy meets girl" and keeps her, even when his world turns against him over it."

This is an exact copy of this little-known Charlton Heston film. Only the cover is in Portugese, the film is in it's original English, not dubbed. The quality is good, and the price is great, compared to the "collector" prices that folks want for the English-cover version.

The War Lord is not Charlton Heston's greatest film, but is not bad. This import DVD from Classicline is in English with Portuguese subtitles. The quality of the print and sound are fine--no problems here.

I had heard this 1965 outing was a very different film to most of Heston's earlier '60s epics (El Cid etc) so bought on that basis plus Richard Boone as lead support is also usually an interesting performer.

Directed by Franklin Schaffner who later went on to direct Patton, Papillon and Boys from Brazil, it simply is a very offbeat and interesting epic, with a different look and feel from dress and hairstyles to cinematography and script (covering paganism, seigneurial rights and the role of feudal rule in regional northern France in the 11th century) that contrasts well with many other Over The Top epics of the '60s. Some things do not change (Heston's wooden acting especially the grinding of his jawbone when in moments of great doubt and the inevitable grand siege battle near the end) but the film benefits from a lack of big budget and works harder as a result to deliver a much more interesting style low key epic.

P.S. Boone is great as Heston's loyal manservant and a good contrast to Guy Stockwell's performance of the jealous younger brother of Heston and the DVD although from Brazil retains the original English language soundtrack so you simply need to switch off the Portugese subtitles.

Over the years I have bought this movie several times as it really brings the life and times of its characters into full view. This has an exceptionally strong cast and will be watched and enjoyed by any history buff.

This Portugese Version of the Classic "War Lord" is a favorite movie of mine. With the Portugese subtitles ommited it Plays like the Original movie. What a treasure! The original play was "The Lovers" and this story has enough romance for anyone. But the attention to detail and microcosim of Medieval History is the true treasure of this film. The cast of thousands and their murky motives are not missed as we see the Canvas of this time in its closeup perspective. Charleton Heston gave as much to this role as any of his big budget epics. The interplay of Celtic hold over and budding Christianity is a subplot. The "Dark Ages" were darkindeed with no certainty on the part of its active participants. Battle scenes and Castle detail are eloquent and perceptive. Should be required veiwing of Medieval History students. A welcome return in this format.Richard Boone's role steals most of the scenes he's in. As a "reenactor" I think the accuracy of detail portrayed is worthy of merit.

At the time, and still, a well crafted and realistic portrayal of middle medieval life that isn't or can't be made anymore. Sure, Rosemary is too beautiful, and James Farentino is 60's clean cut, but the other characters and costuming are spot on. The sword work is also top of the line, photographed to let it play out in actual action and not high tech manipulation.

A must for lovers of acting, action, history and romance.

Great DVD/Great movie. This is from Brazil? Who would know. Looks good and the original English soundtrack plays by default. What's not to like?

Charlton Heston performed to his usual high standards and the movie lived up to its description as a pretty honest portrayal of the Middle Ages.

I am particularly impressed with the company that shipped the DVD. They even furnished the order with a little sheet describing how to navigate the DVD's Portuguese menu.
