Several cuts above most films in the genre....
30 April 2006 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

Brennus, Enemy of Rome (aka Battle of the Valiant) is several cuts above most films in its genre. The well drawn characters and intricate plot are mostly responsible for its superiority, not to mention the fact that most of the story is historically accurate. A brisk pace with lots of action account for more of its success. But primarily it is the two main characters so well portrayed with superior acting by the fierce Gordon Mitchell (Brennus) and the handsome, urbane Tony Kendall as Quintus Fabius. All these elements add up to a rousing tale that will keep viewers enthralled culminating in a grand duel mano a mano by the principals. It is hard to believe that Kendall was not cast in more roles of this sort, he looks perfect for the part of a patrician military officer and is entirely natural and comfortably credible in acting the part. Mitchell, of course, did many roles of this sort and was at his best in them. Brennus is one of his best; see also "The Fury of Achilles" and "Julius Caesar Against the Pirates" for two more of his best. Films such as these are both exciting and entertaining, sometimes even educational like this one. A resurgence of them would be welcome.
