Abstract

An epic, international production shot on location in the Ukraine, Waterloo focuses on the iconic battle that led to Napoleon Bonaparte's defeat at the hands of the British Army commanded by the Duke of Wellington. Over half of the film is dedicated to the battle. Although historically problematic in its depiction of the battle, particularly with the effects of weaponry, the film is lauded for its depiction of war as mundane and horrific.
