Product Description

Action adventure set at the time of the fall of the Roman empire. As the Roman Empire crumbles, the last Emperor, Romulus Augustus Caesar (Thomas Sangster), flees the city, heading for Britain, in search of a long-lost legion of Roman soldiers. Romulus's plans soon change however, when he stumbles upon the mythical sword of Excaliber, and becomes part of its history.

Does a film have to be historically correct to be good? Or can a film still succeed with not many real facts in it? The Last Legion is about the fall of Rome and the birth of a legend. It starts of with a young boy Romulus. He is destined to be the ruler of Rome. But once he becomes Emperor his city crumbles under the invasion of the Goths. He's then forced to run with only bodyguards as protection to Britain. There are quite a few great battle scenes. The history of the movie may be suspect but in this case that doesn't really matter. It's there for entertainment not education. So while it is historically incorrect it's still an epic film for anyone over 12 to watch.

Yes, it's not historically accurate. Yes, Ben Kingsley's accent leaves something to be desired. Yes, Colin Firth is Darcy in pretty much everything he does. Yes, Mira is an absolute stunner. My son was riveted and thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. I have to say I did too. There's something rather comforting about constantly saying "Gosh, it's so and so from xxx " as a whole host of recognisable actors stroll across the scene. It's rather like "Jason and the Argonauts" for the 21st century. Fun, not a history lesson. There's action, some wry humour, enough blood for an 11 year old and all the ingredients which make up the sort of film which used to turn up at the Saturday matinee. It doesn't take itself seriously so you need to watch it in that spirit.

Boasting more historical inaccuracies than if it had been made by the production team of My Parents Are Aliens but adapted from a story partly written by noted historical author Valerio Manfredi The Last Legion is the latest film to tie in the King Arthur mythology with the Romans occupying Britannia in the 5th century . It sure goes about it in a convoluted way though.
It's 460A.D.and Rome is on the verge of falling to the Goths whose leader Odoacer( Peter Mullan) looks like Hagar The Horrible .Young Emperor to be Romulus Augustus(Thomas Sangster), rumoured to be blood relative of Caesar( Ehhh!!) is crowned just before the invasion hordes take the city and is thus a prize capture for them. Once this is done Odoacer charges his vicious soldier Wulfila(Kevin Mckidd) to take the lad to a remote virtually impregnable fortress , though he does allow mysterious sage come magician Ambrosinus (Ben Kingsley) to act as the lads companion which on reflection he may have come to regret.
They are then pursued by commander of the Legions Aurelios (Colin Firth) , some of his men , and an Ottoman warrior Mira (Aishwarya Rai) who is there because of her empires allegiance to Rome , but more probably because she is incredibly attractive and gives the film some love interest.
The action eventually moves to Britannia so the renegades can hook up with the ninth legion -the last in the empire. Here a masked villain called Vortgyn( Harry Van Gorkum) enters the fray because he has some connection to Ambrosinus and the whole thing is resolved with a big battle and it's after this that the film finally reveals it's hand and makes the connections to the Arthurian legend.

Not the best of movies but watchable for some light entertainment. There are some good fighting/battle scenes but the overall plot is a little below par and the same goes for bits of the dialog. I felt like I was watching a B movie with celebreties at some points.
Nothing dramatic and although I wouldn't scare you away completely, there are much better films out there.

I think this is a great 'fantasy' film. I say this as some are nit picking about the lack of historical fact. If it followed facts there would be no film at all, thats the whole point of the film, a good yarn!
And a damn good one at that. Gladiator is another example, not much fact but a great film. As for realism, Romulas, Vortkin, the Goths, the Eastern Empire, Hadrians Wall, all there for some realism. And a great stirring sound track.

This film is an adaptation of the novel by Valerio Massimo Manfredi, and was the penultimate feature to be produced by the late Dino De Laurentiis, best known for his fantasy, sci-fi and horror output from the mid '70s to the '90s.

The film has an amazing cast, including Colin Firth, Ben Kingsley and John Hannah, and there's an early role for Rupert Friend (Homeland's friendly CIA assassin) but best of all, it seems to have served as an audition reel for half the supporting cast of Game of Thrones - Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Jojen Reed), Owen Teale (Allisair Thorne), Nonso Anozie (Xaro Xhoan Daxos), Alexander Siddig (Doran Martell), Robert Pugh (Craster) and James Cosmo (Jeor Mormont) all feature prominently and get the chance to show off some skills with sword, staff or bow.

The story itself is a classic quest - a crumbling Roman Empire begins recalling its legions as its pacts with mercenary forces become strained. A betrayal following the coronation of a new, 12 year old Emperor (Brodie-Sangster) sees Rome sacked and its senators acquiesce before the invading Goth army. The Emperor is kidnapped and Colin Firth's Legionary commander embarks on a mission to free him. But after a further betrayal, they are forced to escape north to Britannia and seek out the ninth legion, which may the last legion still loyal to Rome.

Unfortunately, the film suffers from some bad cinematography and direction, and the plot feels like three separate stories lumped together. Still, it's worth watching just to see the aforementioned epic cast in action.
