The Reviews for Waterloo (1970) 1080p


The (box- office) failure of this film was a tragedyReviewed bycoop-16Vote: 9/10

After Bondarchuk made his colossal reproduction of War And Peace. ( Comparing King Vidor 's version to it is like comparing a paint by numbers watercolor to The Night Watch.) he was naturally chosen by the notorious Dino DeLaurentis to make the battle film to end all battle films, Waterloo.

Waterloo! Is any battle more famous, or more proverbial? With a superb score, a remarkable eye for detail, and stunning overhead shots. ( Not to mention an entire Soviet Army division ), Bondarchuk recreates the highlights of the Napoleonic battle to end all Napoleonic battles. ( Quite literally.)As far as I can tell, the only historical flaw is that The film makes it appear that Wellington's army was exclusively composed of British redcoats, ( Incidentally, one of the best British regiments wore GREEN coats.)when they were only about a third of the "Iron Dukes" polyglot and multi national army. The Kings German Legion, The Dutch, The Danes, the Hessians and the Belgians, are conspicuous by their absence.)

However, what really makes this film stand out is the excellent acting, beginning with the protagonists. Steiger, with his " New York School " method acting, captures the many shades of Napoleon's character: the brilliance, the rages, the sudden bouts of lethargy, the volcanic Corsican eruptions of love and hate.Plummer, the Canadian product of Stratford in the fifties when Sir Tyrone Guthrie was its guiding spirit, brings a very different style to a very different figure. Plummer's Wellington is dry, ironic, skeptical, a man of extraordinary coolness under fire, whose outward stoicism is relieved by sudden flashes of humor and even compassion. He has a job to do. He does it admirably, and at the end, he has lost all stomach for war. Dan O'Herlihy is superb as Ney, a man of extraordinary courage- and absolutely no judgment. Jack Hawkins, sadly at the end, still captures the gruff doggedness of Picton. Finally, there is Welles. This is from the phase of his career when he would do five minutes as Cardinal Wolsey, then five minutes as General Dreedle, all to raise enough money to somehow, someway, finish Don Quixote. Its Tuesday, so Orson is " working for the Russian on the Waterloo thing", doing five minutes as Louis the Seventeenth- and doing it magnificently, playing the corpulent shadow of the Bourbon dynasty as more of a tragic figure than buffoon.

A tremendous effort. Somehow, poor marketing, studio interference and the poor taste, historical ignorance and general stupidity of the American cinema going public lead to box-office failure, which had even more tragic consequences. Kubrick's proposed biopic on Napoleon was not green lighted, thus depriving the world of what should have an even greater film than Gance's Napoleon.

A fantastic testement to Rod Steiger.Steiger is unequalled in his part as Napoleon, not onlyprotraying the French Emperor in manner but in looks aswell.The acting and cinema world lost a master-actor thisyear and the world is poorer for it.

The problem most war movies have, especially if they depict one battle, isthe addition of extraneous sub-plots. I suppose the film makers think abroader audience will appreciate a movie more if there's an ordinary fellowshoved in that we can follow, and a love interest . . . Perhaps this view isvalid. "Waterloo" comes dangerously on the brink of that pitfall in anearly scene, but quickly backs up and focuses on who we really need to knowto understand the battle: Napoleon and Wellington.Christopher Plummer was born to play Wellington, and he underplays the partbeautifully, so that you know what he's thinking by the flick of an eyebrowor the corner of his mouth. Steiger looks like the older Napoleon, and hetends to chew the scenery, but Napoleon flew into unrestrainedrages.

The movie does an admirable job of doing what so many lesser war moviesdon't: it gives you a good idea of what's going on in the field. If youpay attention, you won't be at a loss for the strategy or tactics.

Furthermore, the way it was shot has kept it from aging. It doesn't looklike a "spectacle" from the '50s or '60s -- and though it employs a few ofthe poor film-making choices of its time that late-sixties film makersthought were so cool but which turned out so confusing and easily dated --it doesn't seem dated at all.

The script has a peculiarity that might well have destroyed it: the writersseem to have excavated every famous quote from Napoleon, Wellington, et al,and shoved them all into the dialogue; and, amazingly, it isn't adistraction.

The worst problem the film has as a whole is its tendency to try toduplicate famous paintings by Meissonier, Lady Butler, and others; sometimes this works, giving the color tones we have come to expect of theperiod from those very artworks. Occasionally, it's distracting.

There are a few very rough cuts that look pretty bad. But the movieoriginally was more than four hours long, and the American release suffersfrom somewhat poor editing and splicing. Surely it's time to bring a full(and wide-screen) release to home video?

However, if you like your historical war movies diluted with love storiesand fictional characters, rather than having the real brains behind thebattles at center stage, you'll probably be bored to tears by it. If youwant as good a recreation of a famous battle as you can probably get, thismovie's for you.
