Good pick. I really like the Duellists but Waterloo does capture the fighting and feel of the wars.

Do you like a mass battle or a small skirmish!

Maybe 'The Duelists' was so good because Scott did not have any battle scenes in it.

Bondarchuk's 1960s War and Peace series was epic, with amazing battle scenes. Still available on DVD at over six hours in length!

If anything the movie Napoleon has increased Waterloo's favorably

Great Choice. "Waterloo" could use a re-release in theaters. I am not sure there is enough footage for a director's cut but a remastered IMAX version would be great. My appreciation of this movie has only grown.

Despite the inevitable omissions and compressions [unless you WANT a film ten hours long] its stood the test of time.

There was a spate of historical movies at about that time but it all fell out of fashion a bit
