“The Liberator” is an amazing biopic about Simon Bolivar. Do you know who he is or have you already tuned out? He was a brilliant pioneer that fought the Spanish across swaths of land that would’ve made Alexander the Great blush. The problem is that you can’t cast a Benedict Cumberbatch or Ryan Gosling the role, so Hollywood tends to ignore these kinds of movies.
Edgar Ramirez is on the verge of exploding in America. He was a hair way from Doctor Strange and other big roles under the Disney Umbrella. But, I wish he’d land a major prestige flick and break out that way. I appreciate genre entertainment, but Ramirez has serious acting chops. Also, did I see Danny Huston in this movie?
The Blu-Ray comes with a featurette, trailer and introduction as the special features. The A/V Quality is tremendous for a foreign release. The 1080p transfer really pops. Plus, the DTS-HD 5.1 track holds its own with major American studio releases. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
