Good Sword & Sandal epic!
18 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I saw "Brennus, Enemy of Rome" quite some time ago and it was one of the first Italian Sword & Sandal flicks i ever saw. The dubbing is always an eyesore with Italian films, but this particular film seemed a cut above many other low budget movies in the same genre. Gordon Mitchell is the title character (Brenno/Brennus) who historically did lay siege to Rome. Gordon manages to look imposing (in part due to his muscled physique!) as he scowls at everybody he encounters in the film and fills the screen by prowling like a big cat. There is more story and less action than this kind of film usually has which is not a bad thing. The Roman nobles appear suitably refined and cerebral compared to the barbarians and their direct action approach which is why i liked this film.
