Visually stunning and replete with masterful dialogue, Cleopatra (Parts I & II) are the MGMKid's reverential homage to the long lost Hollywood epic! The set design and visual backdrops are meticulously researched and expertly photographed; readily transporting the audience back to the mystic times of Ancient Egypt and Rome! MGMKid is a First Class Writer and Motion Picture Producer who would most definitely be a welcome breath of fresh air in Hollywood today. Looking forward to Part III!

~~GREETINGS FROM L.M.A.O. STUDIOS~~

Rating : 5

POSITIVE: Where does one begin with a MGMkid1 film? Allow us to start at the beginning. The opening scenes have that classic 70's �??get ready for something epic�?? set up. The the score of Cleopatra fades in which compliments the epic feel. The next is the dialog, writing and acting which are nothing less of remarkable. Timing and realistic script is the backbone of this cinematic achievement. The sets , props and special effects add an additional layer of awe to this film. I am the first to admit (Mefune) that I am a huge fan of Dulci's acting and she adds so much depth to her character and the film itself. The clever meld between backdrops and sets is unbelievably seamless. The story flow of this achievement so smooth. Not once did we roll our eyes and mutter �??get on with it�?? as many do with so many of these type of epic films. The directing is what stands out to me (Bucky_McMacho) the most. MGM knows what it takes to make a truly successful and professional film. It takes sending back dialog until it works. Its getting the sets, cotumes, props, sound effects ans backdrops just right to marry the dialog. Its writing believable and emotional dialog. Its setting the music to bring it altogether in harmonic cinematic perfection.


NEGATIVE: A few mic air hits and editing polishing, but nothing disruptive.

SUGGESTIONS: PM Mefune Akira and suggest a collaboration. lol

OVERALL: An amazing film that rises above most films on TMO. MGMkid1 knows what it take to deliver and does it with excellence! Well done pal!

Wow. What an amazing epic. Just outstanding. The story doesnt drag once, it carries you along on this epic historical journey with such ease and grace. You really deliver MGM, and everything just looks great. I really love how you make backdrops seem like seamless sets and make them blend with the set design. Amazing. Top notch VO's, amazing freecam and music. I really like how you cut a certain scene near the end, just well done.

Acta est fabula, plaudite! Well until part 3 atleast! Just a solid epic, and I really am impressed with the scope of this film. 5 well earned stars!

Exellent. What word could possibly describe these movies any better? Of all the movies out here, "Cleopatra" is among the few, which can truly be called that. During the last three months I've been recieving extremely positive reviews for one of my own movies "The Creepy Clown Visits - A Poem", but I feel like a complete and utter rookie, when I watch the greatness that is Cleopatra. Two grand movies which are not only incredible to look at, but also fantastic exsamples of storytelling. I applaud all of you, who have been involved with this great project.

Whew! Let me catch my breath...

That was without a doubt the most visually stunning piece of work I have seen on TMO. Your painstaking attention to detail has served you masterfully in what can only be described as an epic. I won't wax rhapsodic over the sets, mods, costumes, etc. -- it has already been done so many times by people more versed in the difficulty of such effects than I am. I couldn't even get a cell phone mod to work in my film -- so what you have done here has literally blown me away.

The film is not without its flaws. Essentially, the story of Cleopatra is a soap opera on a grand scale. The good news is that your writing has given it a dimension of life that kept me watching (as I have mentioned in other reviews, Romance is not my strongest genre). You kept the plot moving along, in spite of a few scenes which seemed just a tad overlong. Your actors were strong in their roles, though I found Skintrade a little difficult to hear in Part I.

Admultsanos deserves special praise for his non-stop music score. I tend to feel less is more when it comes to music in movies, but the magnificent themes and motifs he placed throughout the entire length of the film made it a sumptious experience all around.

Congratulations on the well-earned success of this film.

wonderful, of course. one burning question: how come octavia has a midwestern accent? :)

my comments:
i didn't realize marc antony was irish.
the mgm lion on the fountain was a neat little bit of self-promotion.
your set dressing and attention to detail are exceptional. you are truly a director extraordinaire, more than worthy of the legacy set by my namesake, cecil b. demille, who directed the 1934 version.
desperately awaiting the next installment. get to work, mgmkid, we are counting on you.

The mainstay of this film is it's decadence in custom backdrops and meticulously detailed sets and props, taking obvious length of time and effort in it's research and design. It was a shame to see the same quality not taken into the custom costumes, but it is not so bad that it takes anything away from the film and the simple fact that there were custom costumes alone has a praise well worth a full review.

The story (since I don't know the true story of Cleopatra) seems completely accurate by it's depth and inclusion of fact, though I couldn't say if it is was or wasn't. But it is known that even Hollywood will add or remove certain traits or ideals of characters to better suit a selling story.

What was most impressive is that fact that you not only made the story, but that it seems like you did not cut anything from it because the game would not allow you to have in included; instead, you went around the game and made some kind of modification and forced it to work! And even in doing so, still kept a great visual masterpiece intact.

The story is groundbreaking, for TMO, with as much detail as it holds. But the pacing is the one thing I had to cringe on. I feel disheartened to mention it, and if I could give a 4.8 star I would. Such limited facilities of the game and web engine though make it seem a cruel thing of a four star rating, so let me explain my reasoning.

The story felt very rushed, and then had sudden moments of seemingly no movement at all. It was not a consistent pace, and as such I was unable to be fully encased in the film, constantly made aware I watching the movie with the progress interruptions. And the end, though seen with stunning camera work as is the whole film, felt far too dragged on. The repetition of some things came off too often, and never seemed to let up in time.

The scenery, as I said, was beautiful; and the focus. It would have been well to have the shots of the scenery, but not to allow them to overtake as many actor moments as they had. This is one of, I believe, the factors that pulled back on the story.

You are worthy of great and admirable praise, as a film maker and even artisan. But storyboarding and consistency in dramatic course had a falling point, and I hate to make any note of it to begin with.

I am in anticipation of the third part, and would like nothing less then to see more work from you.

Hello MGM!

Sorry to be so late my friend!
I'm not surprised by the quality of your movie. It's very very well done. First of all, you have made a very good job on the editing with the use of props and backdrops. Oh, yes, the backdrops; I don't konw how you chose your backdrops but it's very nice, it gives a touch of the Antiquity. So, you succeed to create the Senate, the interior of roman houses, the palace of Cleopatra...I'm impressed.
I like the work on the characters too, with costumes and starmaker but overall the personnality and the dialogues.
I know very well that period of the Roman story and the life of Cleopatra. I think your storyline is well written and retranscribe the real story.
The sounds effects and musics are well chosen for this kind of movie.

Thank you for this very good moment and I'm waiting for the next part. (I like your idea to use the "intermission like the old movies).
All the best for you.
See you soon!
Ciao

Truly an epic movie. The production value on this one is far superior to most films on TMO. If there were a "big budget" hollywood of TMO, this surly would be the epitome. The music, set dressing, and backdrops really grab you and pull you into the time period. There's really not much I can say, this is just a fantastic movie.

So I take it there is more. Cuz I know there is more but you also have intermission at the end. I really don't have much else to say that I didn't say on the last one. Expect the sets were much better. I really liked the setups. Very nice. Everything was spot on. You didn't lose any fire with the story at all. And the killing of JC always makes me feel sad. Such a great man betrayed by friends. Overall you've made one epic movie.

This is why MGM is known around here for epic productions... massive production value, huge effort put into sets and scenery (and always an admirable attempt at authenticity, to boot, given this software).

Aside from some mic pops and occasionally 'busy' camera work, there really is too much effort on display here to give this film anything but five stars.

Outstanding work, MGM - really an enjoyable flick, and one that (as usual with you) pushes the software's boundaries.

Please, please, please, film on!

This is such an extraordinary production, breathtaking in its beauty, scale and detail, that it requires serious attention to all of its facets to give it the full justice it deserves.

There is no doubt here that MGM Kid has produced a stunning masterwork. It is a beautiful film to watch on every visual level. On particular note is the OUSTANDING character detail of the actors that grace our screen - Good god, is that really Elizabeth Taylor I'm watching here? So good.

But this production is massive, and with any 7 reel epic the early flaws we pick up are going to repeat on us time and time again. As the film progresses the flaws start to get in the way and the character of the film as a whole begins to suffer. As they stand, separately these flaws seem minor, but compounded the effect is a huge one and it subtracts mightily from the "Perfect" status this production almost achieves. The effort of producing this work in itself ranks as a glorious achievement.

I made so many notes watching this work that I had to re-spool and watch again. On a repeated viewing the niggles refused to be dismissed.

So much attention to detail is wrought in this production that it is a wonderment that MGMKid was unable to balance his VO soundtrack. A few characters have unbalanced sound levels the create the effect of us zooming in and out of audio range. With a masterly Music soundtrack sitting there at the right level throughout the VO levels demanded greater attention than they received. This is just a minor point, but an important one, as I firmly believe that audio in film has a 50% share-impact on the audience and should be in complete partnership with the visuals.

The main detractor in this wonderful film is the one that we so often see in mod-rich productions:- The scenery tussles with the actors for top billing. This is almost like a curse upon talented filmmakers with access to mods - in a real-life setting a top-billing actor would get the producers to fire a director who spends so much footage on the scenery rather than them. The important note here is that scenery and sets are an accompaniment - not the star of the scene. Our focus as an audience should be on the actors who create the drama: the setting does not create drama, it sets atmosphere and a sense of place and reference for us. Once that has been established it is a backdrop, pure and simple. MGMKid allows, many times, his artistic eye to take control of his camera at the expense of his actors. Now, watch this movie with a casual eye - the sweeping dolly shots and panoramas take a goodly percentage of screentime in this epic, and too many times story and drama stall as we wait for it to arrive. The singular point here is to keep the drama moving. When you have a massive production unrolling beneath you you do not want to impede it in any way - get to the next scene and then move on again. The story is the focus, not the scenery.

While MGMKid has laid out in spectacular fashion one of the best dramatic tales from ancient times its impact is diminished greatly by some - and I hate to say it - ordinary scene composites. There is a recognisable pattern within his scene compositions that begin with a standard two-shot medium closeup, and this is the least interesting or dramatic of close-encounter shots a director can use - particularly in confrontation scenes and MOST particularly in romance. It is at best an establishing shot, and the drama and emotion contained within this tale is so very often lost. So many scenes demanded closer attention to facials and frontals. Split-referencing, ie, having two separate conversations with common themes happening at the same time, is a damn tricky thing to achieve well. This technique requires over-shoulder shooting and/or very tight cutting: using a dollying camera in this instance risks confusing the audience. While I got the gist of the scene in the movie it was a close run thing for a while there.

The penultimate climax of this film is an extended scene that perhaps goes on too long, again dragging back the unfolding drama. We can see what has happened and the import has been stressed, the drama established - do we need to see it played out again and again? Less is more in this case.

It's heartbreaking to consider anything less than 5 stars for this epic master-work, but in this case there is no 9 and a half out of 10. This is a serious filmmaker with fantastic vision and flair, deserving of - and receiving - serious consideration and praise.

This movie redefines spectacle on TMO! The backdrops were beautiful depictions of the classical world that elevate this movie to fine art. The script is well-structured and engaging, bringing ancient history to entertaining life. I felt transported to Rome and Alexandria, and that kind of travel is what I look for most when I go to the movies. Bravo!

What glorious sights and sounds--at times I actually thought I was watching a true Hollywood classic feature film. The costumes, sets, props, and even music score (brilliant job by Admultosanos) really came together perfectly to re-create places and times long gone (or at least what they were envisioned to look like by classic Hollywood). Some of the voices didn't seem to be of the same volume and quality as the others, but that's to be expected considering the huge cast you had involved in this production. The pacing was also slower than what TMO and even contemporary Hollywood audiences are accustomed to, but since your goal was to re-create a Hollywood classic, it was quite appropriate. In sum, as I mentioned earlier, this truly felt like a classic epic in every way, and that is what we have now come to expect from your studios. Now I eagerly await in anticipation to see if you can match your exacting standards in part three of Cleopatra.

So - we reach halftime in this ambitious epic.

Again, my 5 stars were hard fought for - at times I felt like giving it 4, but never 3.

Visually, it's breathtaking - the sets and mods and costumes (as I'll shortly explain) really do carry this film. Good camera shots in most places too.

Again, a terrific score by admultosanos; this film was never going to be less than three thanks to that alone.

The dialogue needed significant improvement though - not just in the writing, but in the delivery as well.

WRITING: (paraphrasing) "I am with child - your son" - that would mean that they must have had maternity clinics with sonar scanners in ancient Rome! How does she know it was a boy? Or - assuming that she's indulging in some wishful thinking, how come she's not challenged "how do you know?"

DELIVERY: This film seems like a point by point lesson in how to not edit dialogue.

The pacing was very slow, I could have had a bath in between some of those lines (ok - I exaggerate - just a shower then).

Even when the pacing was good, the conversations didn't seem at all natural - it was as if each actor had a different idea of what their line meant in the context of the scene. Bad direction there - the director should send lines back when they don't fit and explain what he/she wants; even a rough synopsis of the scene helps: "your character, X, gets angry with Y - they mock you, then Z intervenes trying to make the peace". I get the feeling that no line was sent back in making this film - nor that the motivations in each scene were properly explained to the actors. I could be wrong - but that still doesn't explain why some of those lines weren't sent back for retakes so they fit the scenes.

On the other hand, it really did evoke those old Italian epics. Films like Quo Vadis which looked and sounded very much like this film (bad dubbing).

Equalisation/normalisation of the actors wasn't always good - one character sounded like he was coming through a CB radio for a while (the Romans really WERE innovators - add that to the sonar scanner!) His level and quality improved by the end though.

Editing - generally good in the exposition shots, but lazy in the dialogue scenes. All too often we had characters making body gestures that didn't match the dialogue - and even when they did, it turned out it wasn't them supposed to be talking! More switching between closeups would have solved this. The camera just sat there watching two people talk on many occasions - but the actions they were making didn't match what was being said or by whom. It's a limitation of The Movies, I know, but we have to deal with it. Closeups are the way to go.

So - there's enough there to knock this easily back to a 4 -

But I return, as promised, to the amazing sets and music. Works of art both. Who gives a rat's arse about dialogue and plot when you can spend 25 minutes drinking in such splenderous sights and sounds?!

It was close, but 5 it is.

Just wow. (hehe - that's the bit of the review you quote) :)

This was a very well crafted film. The story is epic in scope and did a good job of continuing where the previous film left off. I thought this one was a lil bit of a departure from the first part which seemed to have a closer feel to the hbo series Rome. That's a good thing in my opinion because it made it seem more original.
The Cast should be highly commended for such excellent work. H_finocchiaro did an amazing job in this film bringing Cleopatra to life.
The editing and use of mods was done very well. The mods didn't overshadow the story they enhanced it which is exactly what they're there for.
The soundtrack was perfect. Amultosanos created a beautiful score for this film. It did a wonderful job of setting the tone in many scenes and conveying the emotion of the film.
Overall I thought this was an excellent film that's sure to be an instant TMO classic.

Is it possible to stay completely hooked on a movie for 25 minutes? In this case, you bet. By far my favorite movie on TMO at this point. Wow. Just unbelievable. Ceasar's death was extremely well done, not to mention his burning fire after his death. I don't think I can wait for the third, but I guess I'll have to. Well done, thank you so much for your hardwork for my enjoyment.

Up front I will state that if there were a TMO Hall of Fame you would probably gain first ballot entry based upon your promotional campaigns and your set decoration. Both were on display in this second part of Cleopatra. Your sets were outstanding, the music and sound effects were first rate and the costumes and character creations brought the production to life.

It is perhaps your attention to detail and perfection in these areas that bring a brighter focus upon other areas of the project. Some of the action felt like it was forced into scenes that did not quite fit (the romance scenes in particular seemed stilted, perhaps in an appropriate 60 style) and some of the often seen animations broke my concentration and took me out of the world you created. And yes, the invisible gun toting was detrimental to the scenes that they appeared within - especially when the viewer is familiar with this issue. These might have been smaller issues in a film with less perfection at hand.

This film was made according to your unique vision and your own assessment as to whether it lived up to that vision will obviously be so much more appropriate than my own. I felt that the storyline fit the genre and I felt this was very much an early 60s production rather than a current rendition (Spartacas and The Ten Commandments vs Rome or I Claudius - is Gladiator too cheesy a reference?) making it more difficult for me to assess the effectiveness of many plot elements, the romance in particular.

I really enjoyed that final scene where the backdrops are shadowed leaving the ship and building as more of a representation rather than a realistic replica. I also particularly enjoyed the way you created interior rooms through your set design and the sound effects that accompanied the party. All told, it is very simple to recognize the work, effort and the outstanding results of that work. This is a gorgeous flick to watch.

Wow, this one is even better than the first. the set dressing surpasses everything else done on tmo. the story was also more exiting in this one, and it was overall more entertaining and better.

Superb, after watching part 1, part 2 does not falter in fact it surpasses the original, the set construction is even better than the first. The amount of custom content that went into this is amazing. The VO's and dialogue were excellent and well put together.

An excellent movie which really demonstrates your skills as a director.

"We have not come to pariase Caeser, but to bury him!"

Another MGM standard viewing. The film is lush, and filled with the vibrance and vivid detail that we've come to expect. A marvelous job all around, and all I can say is that I simply can not wait for part 3. Magnifico!

So the epic TMO version of Cleopatra continues in this second part. On a macro scale, everything here works very well. It's an engaging story with solid characters and dialog. The pacing for me was just about right. Great work on the set dressing as well. The voice-overs and sound design were good quality, and the music fits it like a glove.

Where this film does break down a little is on the technical side - some of the editing details, and particularly the scene selection. There are a fair number of character animations I found very distracting. A couple of the early conversation scenes were quite messy -- the camera didn't always stay focused on the speaker, and/or the animations didn't match who was speaking at the time.

The backdrop artwork (photos?) are certainly a nice touch... though I might recommend making sure you can't see both the backdrop and the ground at the same time, if you can avoid it. It often creates a "seam" where they meet, and it takes away a bit from the atmosphere. It tends to work best where you have a fair bit of set dressing to sort of act as a cover-up for it.

You come across as someone who'd work very well with the REAL thing -- real cameras, real actors, a real budget -- but who perhaps isn't as technically inclined with The Movies software as some of our other top TMO directors.

Anyway, these technical quibbles are certainly something to consider working on, but not quite enough for me to deduct a star. The other aspects of the film are terrific -- so good work, and keep this series coming! A low 5 stars from me.

I've been waiting for this for the past 10 months, and now that it's here, it doesn't disappoint.

As I've told you, what amazes me with all of your work, and especially the Cleopatra series, is your ability to take a classic, familiar story, and make it gripping. Anyone who knows anything about Roman history, or has seen any of the many Caeser/Cleopatra movies, knows what's going to happen. So it's not the story so much as the way you take us through it.

As always, the most amazing set dressing and background work seen on TMO...bar none. And by creating these awesome sets, you're able to get a fresh and unique look to each scene.

The voice acting was stellar, as always with your films (good material, good actors) but I really want to complement Admultosanos for a breathtaking score. In the classic movies, the score was often a huge part of the movie, and so it is in the Cleopatra series. As I told him, if he released the soundtrack album, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I hope there won't be a 10 month wait for Cleopatra 3....but if there is, rest assured I'll be patiently waiting for it.

See, this didn't really do it for me. As long as it took, it still felt rushed. Many of the custom costumes lacked texture to actually represent linen or woven fabric. Many of the camera angles were great, but some left a little jump of reset at the edge usually caused by useing a scen right up to its very end. While the VO cast was great, for me, personally, you could have easily shaved of 5 or so minutes to make for a tighter emmersion as it seemed to drag its heals in more than one spot. Some really great set dressing, kudos on that, but i felt it was let down by some 'not quite there' backdrops that didn't seem to fit. An entertaining film no less, just didn't raise my oblisk.

MGM knows his stuff; he knows how to keep it both entertaining and historically accurate at the same time. I actually bristled at (SPOILER, though anyone with historic knowledge should know what happens here) Julius' death; the sound, the scene choice...Everything went so well in that scene and every other one. The sets were a mighty breath of refreshment and the set dressing itself was astonishing.

Now of course, while a huge majority of the VO's were nicely chosen, I felt several were perhaps below standards in such a film. I noticed many instances of "Poppings" and breathing into the microphone; simply asking the voice overs responsible for such lines to re-do them would have fixed this, so it's peculiar to me as to why its still there. Additionally, one actor I felt was drastically too young to be taken for real in his role. These factors let out a bit of continuity for me.

What else can I say? I loved it even if there was some VO problems, which can be easily over looked given the epic scale and masterful directing that MGM has brought to this installment in the mighty "CLEOPATRA" series. I simply cannot wait for the next installment.

A lavish and colourful epic that comes to life with a full array of star quality involved. From the breathtaking visual backdrops and their intergration into the story and camera pans to the outstanding original musical score of Admultosanos to the highly talented Judyann88 dressing and make up effects to the Star class voice acting, Cleopatra II had a little bit of everything.

Cleopatra II was written very well and shot extremely professional keeping the flow and vibe of ancient egypt. The cinematography was outstanding with some brilliant showpieces, noticably the extremly dramatic stabbing scene.

You have continued this Saga with yet another enjoybale, colourful and vibrant world for us to see,hear and breathe.

Until the next time.....

Nuke Well for Cleopatra!!!!!

You have impressed me, yet again! I actually felt like I was watching a movie in the theater! This was extremely professional. We had to wait awhile after part 1, but it was worth it! I definately won't mind waiting for Part 3! This amazing epic is sure to leave anyone breathtaken!

Simply amazing. It's obvious you had a vision and stayed true to it. The direction and cinematography push the capabilities of the software beyond it's limits. The pacing was true to the epic movie genre. As in the first movie the voice acting, backdrops, and costuming was outstanding. The music score was spectacular. I was a big fan of Rome on HBO and may have come to this movie and it's predisessor with some skepticism of the quality that could be attained in this format. I am happy to say you exceeded my expectations!

Well I don�??t get on here often and reviews have pretty much dried up for me. But I come across this on the forum and decided to check it out.

For TMO you are a director many will never aspire to and you produce movies of a standard only equalled by the greats of this community. As a TMO movie you get the full 5 stars from me as you nail every aspect of filming a movie requires.

The music alone is amazing but there again Ben�??s work has always been outstanding. I�??m so happy this has worked out so well for the two of you.

The voice acting on TMO has always been of a high standard, but the random quality levels is something I now expect of these movies, even though I wish you had treated the files prior to using them. Gladly you never experience any �??Sound Sync�?? problems, of which would �??kill�?? a brilliant movie.

However I do feel saddened that you stick, like others do, with this limited software that at times embarrasses your creative art. Examples are the numerous extras standing with invisible guns, the constant use of the same limited props or the frequent use of backdrops to propel your audience to the places you want us to go.

In fact if it wasn�??t for your expertise in production and to a huge extent, your patience in working with this awful software, a lesser individual would not have been able to make this.

As a Machinima piece this for me is less then average and that is by no way a fault of yours MGM, but the medium you choose to portray you masterful stories with. I do understand it is quick, it�??s easy and people just want to get their stories down quickly. However if you just looked around I�??m sure there is better software that would benefit from your outstanding direction and production.

Good luck with it.

Cape.

*editor's note...this movie was accidentally submitted to Film of the Fortnight... Clearly, it doesnt have the qualifications to be considered for FoF. But the review was written before this was discovered*

Clearly this was one of the Strangest Sci-Fi movies ever to show up in the Mayo Jar for Film of the fortnight. It had all the weird helmets and space costumes you would expect...but not one single exploding space ship! Not one!...well it did have a this superhero that would catch on fire...but thats all he did, burst in to flame, and just stand there. Now if my sound card hadnt been messed up when I watch this, Im sure the plot would have made more sense, but I think the super hero's name was 'Intermiso' or something like that... His girlfriend has a baby and then its off to fight crime in this weird looking city....I keep waiting for him to burst into flame..but he goes to a party... and then he walks into this Ice sculpter's convention, and they make this statue of him...but forget to put the pants on the statue...and he Faints dead away!.... His girlfriend finds out about this and leaves 'Intermiso' for his best friend, or maybe...not really sure. All I know she was real ticked off at the end of this movie. Will 'Intermiso' Return in the Sequal?...I hope not. And where was the Title Character Cleopatra Jones... I didnt see her kick her pimp's ass once in this movie....
I will watch it again when my sound card get fixed.

*editor' note... Well I watched it again with the sound card fixed, and I want the sound Track!!!*

I havn't seen the original movie with the adorable Elisabeth Taylor, but after this one I actually don't want to see it, because Cleopatra gives me already anything I want from a movie.

Sure, the craft isn't flawless. Your editing seems at times a bit harsh to me and I can't figure it out why you are using that often the "Soldier"-position, at it's a minus in atmosphere, when people hold hands like that. But anything else in the movie is just stunning and makes me breathless just because of the beauty of the images & tunes.

A lot of time went into the seeking & crafting of the backdrops and general the setdressing. It truly pays off! What I find remarkable is that you succeed in using the backdrops in the movie all the way through and truly give attention to them. Through this simple effect you create an atmosphere, which gives me something of old Rome & Egypt. Also your use of freecam and scene selection speaks for you. Just take the scene of Caesars murder & funeral. It's a lesson of outstanding cinema, scored under the fabolous work of Admultosanos.

I also found the script to be quiet written very good. It portrays the several characters very well and let them act in the scenario. The tension of what happenes next isn't of course not that high, because we all know the story of caesar and cleopatra, but anyway you succeed through detailed and wonderful written dialogues, voiced by the best of the best voice actors, to create a certain niveau and tension!

I want the next part! This is one strike of pure atmosphere, style & beauty, starting from the Entr'Acte to the Intermission, we sit back and enjoy!

I wrote a wonderful long review for this film yesterday and lost it, arrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!!!

So here goes again:

The script and filming was of the high standard that we have come to expect as standard from Imperium International.

The casting was spot on and the acting a real pleasure to listen to.

The costumes, make up and sets, backdrops, overlays and set dressing were of an exceptionally high standard.

But one aspect of the film enhanced the whole production to another level, and that was the incredible score. I don't think there has been a better scored movie on TMO.

So to the sign of a really good film on TMO is the length of my review. This film has received a long review, in fact including the one I lost means that it has had two long reviews. Anyway this film is good enough to get them both.

Well, at first let me say thank you for the wonderfull series, a real gem on TMO!

My expactation for part 2 after part1 and all the promo you`ve done were hugh! But excapt from the body language in some dialogs the whole film was so perfect, you`ve deffinatly managed to make the best out of the limited possibilities "the movies" offers us! Especially the VA`s, the score and of cause the set-dressing and use of backdrops made such a special atmosphere. You always manage to show us places we`ve never been before on TMO! That`s what makes all of your films so special and that`s what makes me a fan of you! =)

I guess I'll be the first to go against the flow rather than with it, so I do apologize but it is how I honestly perceive the movie.

If I were to rate this movie based on overall I would probably give it a 4 and I'll tell you why.

Personally I felt the movie was too much about "Oooh, ahh, wow look at the backdrops, the scenery, the set design!" There was not enough plot really going on, and the plot that was going on felt shallow and overshadowed by epic backgrounds and brilliant set design.

But that's really all this movie feels for me, that the focus is just on the sets and the backgrounds. Throughout the movie there is an overbundant focus on scenery. When the camera zooms out of Egypt, when it shows the runner going across with the city in the background, the throne room, Cleopatra walking through a park. All if it was all scenery, scenery, scenery, scenery.

When it was time to find out what was going on in the story and to focus on the plots and characters, well it was hard to follow. The mother felt like she came out of nowhere and everything involving Cesar simply felt like it was an afterthought to the grand backdrops. Although the cinematography was well done to convey a brutal murder the constant focus on backdrops and scenery started ruining my enjoyment of the movie.

The soundtrack was excellent, and the voice acting was well done as well, but plot wise, pacing wise, and character wise it felt extremely lacking. I also found it ironic that this movie is named Cleopatra, because from the two parts I've seen it may as well be called "Cesar" or "Marc Anthony" because Cleopatra feels more like a secondary character than a main character.

If the movie bored me, and it didn't I would have definitely marked it 4 stars. But thankfully it was such a strong production and a lot of time and effort was put into it that I would have felt guilty if I did give it such a rating.

But honestly, if I wanted to see an Art Gallery of Egyptian era architecture; I would go to a musuem. My mind still can't comprehend why in the world you would have a part 3 for this, as there are MANY scenes in this movie you could have cut out completely; it feels like it's being made epic for the sake of epic. I am watching this movie to see Cleopatra, not Cesar, not Marc Anthony, but Cleopatra. There should have been much more focus on the actual star of the movie!

Anyway, that's all I need to say about that. Great job with the movie, but you should really start focusing more on getting through with the story rather than distracting everyone with another pan of Egypt.

That was a cornucopia of vibrant color, a canvas of nuanced music and voice performances worthy of the big screen. I can't say enough about the quality and
professionalism in this film.
The music was very well made by the talented Admultosanos, he added color and depth to an already richly textured film. I felt that on occasion, when the visuals did not contain dialogue, that the music level could have been emphasized even more.PerhapsLouder here and there.. But we would need a mixing console to get the dialogue/fx/music blend I'm hearing. :)

An inspired work MGM, truly well made.

Breathtakingly beautiful.

Admutosanos' hauntingly gorgeous score perfectly sets the tone for TMO's greatest epic. Countless, sets, mods, and actors all work under the skillful direction of one of TMOs premiere players, MGMkid.

Egypt comes to life once again, as we are transported through time to the era where Emporers and Queens rule the land. You will not find a more visually stunning film anywhere else on TMO. This is set creation at its pinnacle. And I honestly cannot say enough about adultosanos' score. It may be his best work to date. It adds so much to each and every scene, it would be impossible to imagine this picture without it. Admultos, you are a master film composer, sir.

Ichthus, H_Finnichiaro, and Alfric lead the cast in yet another very well acted film. Each cast member delivers their lines well, something that is essential in a film as epic as Cleoptra.

How many more ways can I say beauitful? Alluring, angelic, appealing, beauteous, classy, dazzling, divine, elegant, exquisite, fascinating, good-looking, gorgeous, lovely, pleasing, pretty, radiant, ravishing, sightly, splendid, stunning, superb, wonderful. That still doesn't quite describe it.

Yet another first class production from a first class guy.

Once again MGM, you prove to us just how captivating you can make your films. With all the flash and pizzaz of a huge Hollywood production, "Cleopatra Part II" gives us a great experience. Helped along by wonderful performances from the talented VA cast, as well as the simply grand costumes and set decoration, the film moves smoothly through the tale of Cleopatra. I'd like to especially point out the simply amazing score for Admultosanos. He once again shows us just how spectacular a score for a TMO film can be. In all, a film I would recommend over and over again. Great job on this, MGM. Time well spent waiting on it to come out.

You really deliver MGM, and everything just looks great. I really love how you make backdrops seem like seamless sets and make them blend with the set design. Amazing. Top notch VO's, amazing freecam and music. I really like how you cut a certain scene near the end, just well done.

The wait is finally over! Hoorah!
That was one hell of an epic blockbuster and definelty the movie i was expecting. I really enjoyed it. It was brilliant. Just as good as the original.
Not a dissapointment at all. Really to the same quality as Part one.
The production values of this film are off the wall! Incredible.
Just as in Cleo 1.
The sets and set-dressings were absoutely amazing.
I don't think i have really ever seen a TMO film [except for Cleo 1] which had so much detail with the sets.
That is a really key thing for films, like these especially to have.
Unique sets and set-dressings.
In your films, one thing among many others which i really do admire and love is the way that by adding so much detail with the set-dressings, sets and so much more you really create an amazing atmosphere.
You make us feel as if we are really there!
I loved the cast. They were all amazing once again.
H finocchiaro was excellent as Cleopatra once again.
Everyone did an excellent job and shined in their roles.
I loved some of the guest appearances in the film,
for example: Dulci, Mustachio26 and a few others.
I also noticed your little cameo in the film MGM. Nice work.
I found that very enjoyable. Very nice stuff.
Why, it was really clever of you!! Great idea.
The story in this one is easier to take in and digest as a whole.
From that you have grown a great continuing story which made this installment very, very enjoyable, just as much as the previous installment.
What I love about these films MGM, is the way that you perfect every single detail to make these films really professional and top notch.
From the set-dressings, the cast, sets, music, and much more.
The score by the very talented Admultsamos is once again superb.
He is one hell of a composer. I came to learn that from Cleo 1.
There are so many things to love about this film.
From the cast to crew it is definelty very true to say that you all have worked you socks off and made a really good movie. Congrats to you all.
You were all excellent. My hat is off to you all!!!
I have to say the camera-work was very well done and i really have to say i didn't find anything that killed the film or made it really sloppy in areas.
In this film, you really excelled in everything to make the best film you could.
From these two very, very good Cleopatra TMO films it does shine through that you are and have been a big Cleopatra fan for a long, long time.
By that i mean, it's great to see someone like you making re-makes of real life films [TMO versions i mean] that you love and make in your own vision.
I find that really intruguing as you can put your own take on it and this has come very obvious in these 2 epic blockbusters by the amount of love and passion you have for these types of films.
It was really entertaining and by far the best film online atm.
It has to be said. A really big epic blockbuster extravangza.
After months and months of anticipation, Cleopatra 2 is finally here.
The wait was well worth it and much, much more!
Thankyou MGM for making this wonderful film.
This is one of the most finest, rich masterpieces i have seen on TMO.
Overall: 10/10 [6 stars if i could, but a high 5 on TMO]
Another very, very fine installment in the Cleopatra series.
I loved it from start to finish.
It had a really great pace and didn't feel like 25 mins at all.
It was well worth it!!!!
This was exactly what i wanted. Thankyou very much MGM. A true masterpiece.
I am very impressed by this film!!!
A really top-notch film and i'm glad it was!
A very, very good film.
By making these films, you will make new TMO film-makers really inspired to make as such a good film as yours and many you have made in the past.
A lovely film. Gratzi, gratzi.
A film of an extremely high standard.
I'm really looking forward to Cleopatra 3. Can't wait to see it!
This film gets my "Derbyrams's Excellence Award" and Two big thumbs up!
A highly recommended film!!!

Un-freaking-believeable. Absolutely mezmerizing. A little boring, but mostly entrancing. The freecam was great. The set dressings were top-notch, the VO's (and VA's) were exceptional, the backdrops and costumes were breathtaking and all historically accurate. The music score was epic, to say the least. The stabbing scene was superbly filmed. This film will soon be included in the vault of amazing, epic TMO movies. Wow.
