Editorial Reviews

Warriors (DVD)

These are the legendary warriors of history - soldiers with the courage, ambition and military genius to lead their men to victory. In lavish, all-action spectaculars, this series brilliantly evokes the crucial battles that changed their lives, the destiny of their people and, in some cases, the history of the world. Fo cusing on six of the most powerful and majestic leaders of all time, the stories examine the motives, the personal strengths and often the weaknesses that drove them to achieve what no one else dared.

With a lower budget, no big name actors and only an hour, these small movies are better than the last ten blockbusters I've seen. Not so much documentaries as dramatic depictions of the decision making and consequences of these leaders giving a believable version of what made them "tick." The acting, writing and direction are startlingly good with only the least intrusive narration. Think low-budbet David Lean. I deducted one star only because they should have been given more time and resourses. I only hope a second series is given exactly that.

The first two disks include 6 one-hour docudramas, spectacularly produced, about Spartacus, Attila the Hun, The Shogun, Richard the Lionheart, Cortes, and Napolean. Disk 3, as bonus features, include a 90-minute docudrama about Hannibal starring Alexander Siddig (available at last in the US), a one-hour doc about Hannibal, and a one-hour docudrama about Genghis Khan. Production values are very high. This set is a great value for the history-lover.

I'm a big history buff so I'm constantly watching documentaries on pretty much any historical period I can find. The episodes in this series, however, are a little bit different than the average documentary. The episodes aren't documentaries so much as they are little movies outlining a very specific event in the life of the portrayed historical character. The events actually happened, of course, so these aren't fictionalized accounts. I enjoyed this approach a great deal. There is a bit of narration at the beginning that introduces things but then it is pretty much a little movie or tv episode portraying the event. It's kind of hard to describe properly but if you like historical documentaries (and I LOVE them) and/or you like the stuff that the BBC puts out, you'll definitely like this.

The one on Napoleon is my favorite because it dramatized only the very early part of his life about how he got his start in the army as opposed to later on when he is emperor. I didn't have a lot of knowledge on his early life so it was interesting to see how Napoleon was actually shunned quite a bit for his novel ideas on artillery. The documentaries aren't all-encompassing of the historical figure's life but are very specific to one event.

You may recognize several of these actors from other BBC productions (i.e. the guy that plays Napoleon, Tom Burke, is also Athos on The Musketeers on the BBC and the actor who plays Richard the Lionheart was on The Tudors on Showtime).

Thrill to lavish, all-action dramatic spectacles based on the lives of six men who left their marks on the world-from Spartacus, the gladiator who brought Rome to its knees, to the audacious military genius, Napoleon. Absorbing drama and CGI effects reveal the motives, force of will, genius, courage and greed that drove these men to achieve what no one else had dared.

I had seen excerpts of this series on TV, liked it so much that I decided to purchase the DVD via Amazon but, only after receiving assurance from the distributor that it would work on DVD players made for the U.S. market or region. Deliver of the DVD took only two days (Amazon Prime customer). I had no trouble playing disc 1 on my Apple MacBook Air Computer using an external Apple CD/DVD drive. I found the quality of the video and audio to be outstanding. (I assume I will find the same when I play the other two discs). A very satisfied customer!

I was very glad to be able to get this in region 1 format. I'd seen some of it in bits, on promo sites and YouTube, but couldn't find anything but r 2 for the longest time. Much better acted than most documentaries, and the narrative voice-overs are kept to the absolute minimum. The only thing slightly jarring is the inconsistency of the language barriers; sometimes characters will be speaking in their own language and having their words translated, while other times they'll both be speaking plain English.

I watched this series when it oringally aired. The Napoleon short was absoultely amazing... it is not only very well directed, but the acting blew average out of the water. I enjoyed the other shorts too, but seriously -- $30 bucks for the Napoleon piece is just a small, small price to pay for such quality.

Anyone who loves this character from history will be very moved by it.

Kudos to the max. Life is too short to review things that don't rock your world, and this one certainly did.

It's been a while since I watched Warriors, but I remember wanting to purchase it. I loved the segment on Hannibal (special features) and Leyasu Tokugawa (Disc 2); however, I was extremely disappointed with Spartacus (yuk - poor casting). Overall, I really liked the series, good history and quite informative. I would recommend the purchase of this item.
