A true epicBy YDL13 from Mid Glamorgan , 09 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]With a running time in excess of 3 hours it truly is an epic film, besides it won 7 Oscars and in its day that was epic!
At the risk of being branded "an old wrinkly" I can remember being taken to see this film in the "sixties" with my parents. The film absolutely bowled me over then and now in my fifties it has so much more to offer now that I can better appreciate the stupendous cinematography, acting and settings.
It has action in abundance yet still conveys the era and story faithfully. This is a must see film for both children and adults alike. A true story about one of England's greatest unsung heroes set in the lands that we commonly now refer to as "The Gulf". I cannot praise the scenes enough, although you have to see it in widescreen to truly appreciate all its glory.

A MasterpieceBy FilmBob (1 review) , 08 May 2013Made before the advent of CGI, it takes some thought to realise that each person, camel, etc, in this sweeping epic is real, and not a virtual creation. Once that sinks in, the true scope of the film can be appreciated, not only as a film, but a reflection of the truly great life of one of the Greatest Britons. The Blu-ray doesn't disappoint, with beautiful visual detail and sound. A definite candidate as a permanent addition to any collection.

A classic.By Sam5678 (1 review) , 19 Jan 2013Absolutely fantastic. Tells the story of T. E Lawrence very well, even if some of it is pure speculation. A well made film, worth every minute.
True EpicBy BettyH (2 reviews) from Wotton-under-Edge , 11 Jan 2013A true epic. It looked marvelous in blu ray on our 42' screen. Well worth watching again, it really hasn't aged.
