Goofs

All of the mounted troops use very obviously modern equipment. Most notable were the stirrups. Stirrups did not come into common use in Europe until at least the 8th century, long after the end of the Roman Empire. See more »

One of the greatest historical movies of all times!
15 August 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Unlike many Hollywood movies of the same period (Cleopatra, Ben-Hur, Fall of the Roman Empire, etc) this one is almost perfect in the historical accuracy sence. They used the latest archeological data available at the time (Trajan's column) to show Roman legions in their glory. Cinematography is great. I've heard they used something like 5,000 extras to create battle scenes. Unlike its sequel (Collona), this movie is a masterpiece for everyone who likes cinema and ancient history. I think that if it would be released in the USA it would be nominated for Oscar. Its a shame that this video is hard to find and is not available in major stores.
