The Last Legion (2006)
As the Roman Empire finally succumbs to history, the last Caesar, Romulus Augustus, still a boy, flees to join his last legion in the north of Britannia.
I’m glad to say that this isn’t as awful as the trailers made it look and the final result passes the time and keeps the attention. However, it does feel like a television mini-series that has been edited down to feature film length as the plot feels barely coherent. Odd child actor Thomas Sangster wanders emotionlessly through another part while Colin Firth and Ben Kingsley, surprisingly, don’t embarrass themselves. Talented composer Patrick Doyle adds some quality through his fitting score.
This movie contains sword violence, mild gory and unpleasant scenes
