Colonel William Ludlow (Sir Anthony Hopkins) built a ranch in the remote foothills of the Montana Rockies where he brought up his three sons away from the carnage of the Indian wars. Alfred (Aidan Quinn) the eldest, is dutiful and reserved, Samuel (Henry Thomas) the beloved youngest, is compassionate and idealistic, while the middle brother Tristan (Brad Pitt) has a wild untameable spirit. Into this masculine world enters Susannah Finncannon (Julia Ormond), a beautiful intelligent woman who stirs a passion and rivalry in all three brothers that will change the course of their lives and shape their destinies forever. From the rugged prairie lands of 19th Century America to the trenches of World War I and the changing world beyond, Legends Of The Fall is a sweeping, star-studded epic - a passionate journey into the darkest secrets of love, betrayal and the unbreakable bonds of blood.

I would consider this film to be one of Edward Zwick's masterpieces, and if not probably his best film to date. This 1994 film has everything you looking for. Action, war, Romance, adventure, drama, and it is lavished with so many themes it just strikes so many chords. Not to mention the beautiful sweeping and majestic soundtrack which is so powerful in the film, that only a music composer like James Horner could accomplish.
For me this film is just pefect in so many ways, that it is a pleasure to watch again and again. So what if it is perhaps as some would say idealistic and romanticised. The era it is set in, can justify this, as it was a time where people had romanticised views of love and war.
The DVD is unfortunately not available ina 2disc special edition, but for what it has to offer, it is suitable enough. It has wonderful animated menus, it has interesting featurettes, a trailer, filmographies and a commentary. I was impressed with the DVD, and felt i got a good deal for a good price. I would definitely recommend this film to own on DVD.
