Snoozers in Rome
28 May 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

I don't know why this movie is so dull. Perhaps its the dub. Perhaps its just the way its put together. Perhaps its that despite an attempt to make a complicated plot line it really just isn't that interesting.

This is the story Marcus a big strong guy who is protecting a princess who no one knows is a princess. Both are now slaves after a coup in their home land. The pair are then thrown into the messy political waters of Roman political heavies. There's all of the typical pagan Romans hunting Christians plot lines, including romance. Who ever was writing this tried to put something in it for everyone, and so made a movie for no one. Its boring.

Its not bad, you just won't care. If you do click and care about whats going on you'll find it a decent movie. For me it was almost intolerably dull. 3 out of 10.
