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 »

Attractive sword and sandals film from Romania
1 February 2013 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Attractive Romanian film (actually a Romanian-French co production filmed in Romania) belonging to the swords and sandals genre and telling the story of how the Dacians confronted and resisted the Roman Empire at around 100 AD. Great action scenes, attractive outdoor locations (in pastoral like locations) are a plus. This was made in 1967, when many films of this sort were made in the West (the so called Peplum, including Spartacus, Cleopatra and countless Italian movies), yet this particular film seems to be little known outside Romania. It is a well made, entertaining film with fine color photography. Since the Dacians are believed to be the ancestors of the Romanians, I suppose part of the purpose of the film was to raise nationalist consciousness, but this is thankfully not too heavy.
