Trivia

The film is based on the book 'The Silver Pigs', the first of Lindsey Davis's series of novels about Ancient Roman 'Informer' (private detective) Marcus Didius Falco. However, it bears little relation to the book, jettisoning most of the plot and characters. See more »

The Roman Empire Revisited
15 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a bit of an oddball of a movie. It is highly entertaining and it seems to have some very good and original ideas, but it is a bit messy in it's execution. The movie gives a highly detailed view of ancient Rome. Just like series such as Hercules and Xena, this movie transposes thoroughly modern plots and characters on a historical setting, thus sacrificing historical accuracy. Though I've to say that unlike Hercules and Xena, this is not fantasy. The plot is fairly contrived, but exiting 'till the. The settings and backgrounds are convincing. The acting is is good. There's only one minor fault which bothered me. Me personally, I love Bryan Brown and Amanda Pays. But their accents are continents apart, from each other as well as from Rome, and that disturbed my suspense of disbelief to such an extent, that I didn't enjoy the acting, plot and setting as much as I should've. But if you're not a nitpicker like me and you like the genre, then you'll probably enjoy this movie.
