Stanley Kubrick’s sword & sandals epic about the slave turned liberator. Spartacus is brilliant, just like any other of Kubrick’s film. The sprawling epic shows Spartacus’s character transformation brilliantly, mostly because of Kirk’s excellent performance as the legendary leader. The set and costume designs are beautiful, the landscapes are wondrously shot, and lastly the battle scenes are brilliantly portrayed. Kubrick’s Spartacus is a fantastic film, a must watch for any cinephile, and a 91 out of 100.
