| Best version of the play
It's a crime this movie isn't on DVD yet. If you can get ahold of the 20 year + old VHS tape and you like either Shakespeare or Charlton Heston, then get it. The Richard Johnson/ Janet Suzeman version is good, especially Patrick Stewart, but that was a TV production- this is a film. No constant close-ups or backgrounds that are hard on the eyes. Instead you get lots of scenes filmed on location (by that I mean outdoors, not a set thats suppose to be outdoors), action scenes involving gladiators and a honest to goodness depiction of the Battle of Actium (ok, they reused some Ben-Hur footage in parts, but its still not bad for the time), and a musical soundtrack. The cast is great, and Heston is perfect as Antony. The actress playing Cleopatra gets criticism from some, but I think she did a great job as well. This is the definitive version of this play, all things considered.
