A Very Silly Use of Stock Footage, 10 April 2004
Author: dbborroughs from Glen Cove, New York

After a bit about barbarians over whelming the Roman Empire the plot starts as a Roman Legion in Gaul comes upon another legion thats been attacked and robbed of its gold. An official arrives and sends the new group to look into what is becoming a series of robberies of Roman gold.

An okay and overly familiar story is brought down by awful English dubbing that consists of just voices and maybe an occasional footstep. Worse is mismatched footage thats used to make the barbarians actually seem like they have huge numbers. Unfortunately the footage doesn't quite match and huge battle scenes are inter-cut with considerably fewer numbers of people in tighter shots.

Over all the movie isn't bad, its just not very good, at least in the form it has as a dubbed English movie. Perhaps on a dull rainy Sunday...
