Description

Fearing the power-hungry Napolean, the kings and queens of Europe pressure him to step down as the emperor of France. He bids a touching farewell to his soldiers before departing for exile in Elba. That exile doesn't last long, however, and soon Louis XVIII and his court learn that Napolean has fled the small island and is already gathering some of his loyal men in an attempt to take control once more. The troops arrive in Paris and occupy the city without a shot being fired or a sword wielded. Napolean again becomes emperor, prompting much political maneuvering by the leaders of Russia, England, Austria, and Prussia, who unite to put an end to his ambitions once and for all.

    With incredible performances from Rod Steiger, Christopher Plummer and many more. This film has to be one of the greatest within it's genre, as well as one of the most underrated films of all time. depicting the build up to Waterloo and the battle itself, as well as the downfall of Napolean (one of the greatest military commanders and leaders in history) The film is faithful to history, and the director delivers an incredible piece of work, a must watch

    A true classic film. What a genius Rod Steiger is playing the role of Napoleon. The perfect combination.

    A great movie with battle scenes that lord of rings look like a cheap made for tv film! It was filmed using thousands of soviet army soldiers. No cgi just thousands of men and horses But there much more to this them spectacular battle scenes. it has a great screen play and human drama. Rod Stieger performance as napoleon is definitive. Plumber as wellington is also superb. The scenes showing the long night before the battle is cinematic perfection. It brilliantly conveys the fears, self doubt and tension that must have gone through the leaders minds before the battle. My greatest regret is that my father (a great admirer of Wellington and this film) passed away before he could see this film in glorious high definition! ,
