War And Peace (DVD)War and Peace is a commendable attempt to boil down Tolstoy's long, diff icult novel into 208 minutes' screen time. In recreating the the social and personal upheavals attending Napoleon's 1812 invasion of Russia, $6 million was shelled out by coproducers Carlo Pon ti, Dino de Laurentiis and Paramount Pictures. Some of the panoramic battle sequences are so e xpertly handled by second-unit directo r Mario Soldati that they appear to be Technicolor-and-Vistavision newsreel footage of the actual events. Still, the film falters dr amatically, principally because of a lumpy s cript and King Vidor's surprisingly lustreless direction. In addition, t he casting is wi ldly consistent: for example, while Audrey Hepburn is f lawless as Natasha, Henry Fonda is far too "Yankeefied" as the introspec tive Pierre. Proving too long and unwieldy for most audiences, War and P eace died at the box office; far more successful was the epic, sc rupulo usly faithful 1968 version, filmed in the Soviet Union.]]>

Gaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following Ashurâ€™s death, Naevia and Crixus fight as one. Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome. The Roman Senate turns to Marcus Crassus, a wealthy, strategic politician, for aid. He respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion. The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.
