Colosseum: A Gladiator's Storyline is a nice docudrama and most likely was created primarily for test in the high school or college classroom or to be broadcast on either public tv or the History Channel. (It might be useful to know that it doesn't present intense violence but does recommend it; it also makes clear that gladiators, like modern-day athletes and rock stars, had their share of groupies.) The another fellow who provided a review seems more than a tiny confused about the general intent of the production. In no method was it ever meant to compete vs major detail films and could not be bought by someone hoping to see a gladiatorial film comparable to Gladiator. In a nutshell, it says the storyline of two gladiators, using some very primary story-telling techniques to accomplish its goals. First, rather than taking a straight-forward documentary approach, the whole storyline is instead presented using live actors on zone in appropriate costume. (Production values and unique results are not first-rate, but they're definitely more than adequate and comparable to much of what you would normally see on the History Channel.) Second, two narrative lines run throughout the production, and there's never any confusion about who is speaking. One speaker is clearly an omniscient voice who supports place the storyline of the gladiators into historical perspective, providing facts and features to enlighten the modern viewer; the second narrator is one of the gladiators, Verus, who says the viewer whatever is on his mind as it relates to his story. In the end, the narrative approach works well and does not undermine the overall storyline or create it seem ridiculous despite the fact that the storyline does have a predictable element to it. On the entire the docudrama works well and does a nice job of conveying the facts about Roman gladiatorial combat. It also blends fact and fabrication in a method that seems fair and reasonable so that the viewer has been well served when the credits roll.
This drama documentary was included as a DVD additional on Pompeii: The Last Day (2003) TV. I started watching it with tiny expectations and now ended up liking it better than the main film on the DVD.One of the main reasons I enjoyed Coloseum: A Gladiator's Storyline is that the spoken dialog was in Latin. I studied Latin in High School, but have never heard it spoken on screen before. I think the film would be understandable to someone who did not study Latin, as the narration is in English.I liked the references to Martial (who I have not read) and Seutoneus (who I am just starting to read).This storyline was not just about Gladiators, but about the political climate of the time and the reasons for building the Flavian Amphitheatre (known today as the Colosseum).
One of the greatest documentaries I've seen is "Pompeii: The Last Days". Based on historical records and artifacts, the movie recreates the final days of the doomed town of Pompeii. What makes it exciting is that they filmmakers recreated the town and a tiny group of doomed residents. Through their lives, you learn what it was like to have lived during this harrowing event.Here in "Colosseum: A Gladiator's Story" the filmmakers have once again used the same kind of movie making--though they also provided quite a bit of narration along with folks acting out the storyline of a true life gladiator. Using some CGI and great costumes, the people from the BBC recreate this life in nice detail. My only gripe is with the game of this show, as the Colosseum wasn't a large focus at all of the film--it was more the storyline of a gladiator, not the building. So, if you are looking for an in-depth discussion of the building--with its nice basement, trap doors, etc., then this is not a movie for you. Still, it's very well done and quite compelling.
