As an aficionado of Roman history, I was very pleased with this adaptation of Nero. Along with the TV series Rome, it is one of the few decent adaptations of Roman history to have been produced recently.
Surprisingly, John Simm is brilliant at playing Caligula, and Hans Matheson is superb as Nero, humanizing the classic monster through a powerful blend of arrogance and paranoia.
A true story that mirrors our own troubled times.

Let's clear things. this is no masterpiece nor a failure either. It's desent and it's part accurate part fiction.
OK, So nero was 4 years old at the time caligula was murdered. so what ? that's not so important.
What was important is to get to the politics which eventually determined nero's fate. his dealings with the infamous tiggelinus the chief of the praetorian guards after burru's death.
For it was tiggelinus and sabinus who overthrew the emperor in june of 68 and this movie tells a lot of this stuff.
Until now we had only quo vadis a religious film from 1951 in which we saw part of nero's life and a few other attempts (an episode of the i claudius series and an episode of the ancient rome series) but never a full 3 hour movie.
Although not great is worth for our dvd collection and i hope this series to continue with more roman emperors biographies.

Ok I'm only half way through this... at 1 hr 35 min... but it's obvious this is completely historically inaccurate. It's supposed to be a historical piece but if you can't trust the history what's the point?

I'm not a professor or academic but I've read plenty on the history or Rome and the Emperors etc, and been there. All those books, all those academics who have really studied Roman history, well their agreed interpretation is totally different to this. For example Nero was about FOUR when Caligula died and Claudius became Emperor, not a lovestruck teenager living with slaves as in this story. And the whole love denied plot... I've not read this before about Nero. It may be true, who knows, but it seems they have drawn on other areas of Roman history, perhaps the life of Tiberius who turned bitter when forced to divorce his wife and marry Augustus's daughter. Historians say that is a reason Tiberius became a monster. So maybe they used that as a reason for Nero instead? It seems like everything has been adapted to fit the script, paying no respect to history. It's like the current BBC show Robin Hood. Ok, it's not THAT bad...!! But to say on the box it is the TRUE story seems, based on what the profs say, to be total nonsense. Shame.

Buy Rome seasons one and two instead. They are brilliant.
