5.0 out of 5 stars The Eternal City, 23 Feb 2006
This review is from: Rome: The Complete HBO Season 1 (6 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Full marks for this production . Most would agree this was never going to be on the scale of Ridley Scotts - Gladiator, instead we had what I consider to be an 'as was' view of Rome, and rightly so, no apologies for frankness . The casting was particularly good, Cieran Hinds as Julius Caeser was masterful (from an already quality actor)as a depiction, whilst Keven McKidd's portrayal of the ex-soldier/good citizen ranks as some of the most convincing for historic drama seen yet . As someone who is ex-military himself I found the brotherhood of feeling within the army (and particulary with between Lucious ad Titus) to be very refreshing in the bland political times we live through .
I eagerly await the second series - but please HBO - get this DVD of the first series released SOON .
