Great historical movie
8 February 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Best fight scenes , huge masses of soldiers , very credible movie.I saw that movie when I was a child and I was very impressed . I saw again when I grew up and still impressed. I was fascinated by the story of fighting between Dacia and Rome and when I saw this movie the stories became reality. Great performance for the unforgettable actor Amza Pellea as Decebal (the king of dacians) and the best movie of Sergiu Nicolaescu. This is a super-production in the spirit of '60 movies (Spartacus , Battle for Rome).

A movie with great Romanian and international actors. The movie is better than The Gladiator or other actual historical movies.
