Napoleon is a spectacle-filled action epic that details the checkered rise and fall of the iconic French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, played by Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix. Against a stunning backdrop of large-scale filmmaking orchestrated by legendary director Ridley Scott, the film captures Bonaparte’s relentless journey to power through the prism of his addictive, volatile relationship with his one true love, Josephine, showcasing his visionary military and political tactics against some of the most dynamic practical battle sequences ever filmed.

“… a big acting swing from Joaquin Phoenix in a beast of a role that will keep you riveted.

– Peter Travers, ABC News

Scott has created an outrageously enjoyable cavalry charge of a movie

– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
