The Last Legion (2007)
[on the morning of the battle]
Aurelius: If we don't live to see tomorrow...
Mira: Nothing will ever part us.

Aurelius: My friends, we've all seen many mornings like this one. Together we've watched the sun rise, and not known if that day would be our last. Some comrades I've seen, scarcely out of boyhood, trembling before their first battle.
Demetrius: It was a cold morning, Commander.
Aurelius: That it was, Demetrius. And you men of the Ninth Legion, all of us, together we have fought all our lives for the Empire our ancestors created, and together we have watched that Empire crumble to dust. And with its fall we have lost two friends. I can tell you that in the darkest moments, I came to believe that there was nothing left to fight for. But I've been shown, through the wisdom of others, that there is one more battle to be waged, against tyranny and the slaughter of innocents. Let us defend to the last breath this island of Brittania, against those who would tear out its heart and soul! And then those who come after us l remember that there was such a thing as a Roman soldier, with a Roman sword, and a Roman heart!
[draws sword]
Aurelius: Hail, Caesar!
All: Hail, Caesar!

Aurelius: Who are you?
Ambrosinus: One who knows humiliation to be a poor teacher, of both men and boys.
Aurelius: I smell a philosopher.

[looking at the summit of Capri]
Aurelius: How long is it to climb to the top?
Batiatus: An hour. Faster coming down.

[Aurelius and Mira escape the Goths by leaping off the cliff into the ocean]
Aurelius: You were right, Batiatus. It is quicker on the way down.

Aurelius: [sees Mira behind him] I told you to stay on the boat.
Mira: You will need my help.
[She climbs up closer, and freezes when he puts his sword to her throat]
Aurelius: You know what happens to a soldier of mine who disobeys an order?
Mira: [pushes the blade aside] Your men are too slow.
