" When in Rome, do as the Romans do, except cross the Emperor "
23 May 2009 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

There are not too many films which sweep across time to snare a bit of History and attempt a serious comedy. Then again, this film " The Age of Treason " may have started out as far fetched comedy but as we view it, should be taken seriously. Whatever, the beginning, the story is quite interesting, cohesive and most of all, entertaining. The star of the film is none other than Bryan Brown playing a 1st Century Private Investigator, named Marcus Falco. OK, so there wasn't such an occupation in the 1st century, but who cares, the movie works. Like a modern private Eye, Falco has a difficult time holding onto his money, that is until one of his clients gives him a enormous Gladitor named Justus, (Matthias Hues) in exchange for a fee. Always looking for work, Falco and his friend are to learn who murdered the brother of his employer. In a day and age where it is not wise to ask questions, especially about the nobility or the powerful, Falco nevertheless seeks out the culprit. His investigation will take him into the secret chambers of the Vestal Virgins, the dark blood pits of the gladiatorial area and even into the Palace of the Emperor Vespasian (Anthony Valentine). Wheather he will ever return to his lower income dwelling alive, is not assured, by any means. Still it is his line of work and for an off the beaten path type of movie, it works indeed and I predict it will become a rare Classic in its own right. ****
