The Last Legion (Movie Review)
"The historical epic is an interesting genre. It’s brought us some of film’s most memorable ventures, from Cecil B. Demille’s The Ten Commandments to Mel Gibson’s Braveheart. It’s also one of the most difficult kinds of films to make; successfully combining history, story, characters and large set pieces is a monumental task that few directors are willing to tackle. The Last Legion, the latest sword-and-sandal movie to come since the genre’s revitalization with 2000’s Gladiator, has been mistaken by many critics as an attempt to recreate these films’ size and scope. When in reality all the filmmakers set out to do was to make a fun action/adventure film, and if you watch the film with this in mind and your inner-child at the forefront, you’ll have a lot of fun." - Chris M.
