For me there is something compelling about historical movies based on facts as we know them. Waterloo is a fine movie, garnished with all the splendour and spectacle you would expect depicting a bygone age. The sets, costumes and battle scenes are unquestionably brilliant. Rod Steiger as Napoleon is so far into character, he could almost be a descendant of Napoleon himself. A truly magnificent movie with a brilliant cast. No doubt one to watch over and over.
