Storyline

In the first half of the first century A.D., the Teutonic tribes, led by Arminius The Terrible, rebel against the cruel and conquering Roman Empire. In raging torments and blood curdling battles, the barbarian tribes and Roman Legions fight a war of attrition, so brutal and terrible that Arminius becomes a legend throughout the empire. Only Augustus, Emperor of Rome is evil and treacherous enough to enslave the Teuton barbarian and halt his murderous uprisings. Written by Sic Coyote <sicc@mindless.com>

The barbarians are coming

Better-than-average Italian epic, considering that the average doesn't mean too much in this case. Rebel Germans, so-called barbarians, fight against the Roman Empire. Their leader, played by American actor Cameron Mitchell, is a former member of the Roman army. The film, also known as "Massacre in the Black Forest", has two long, violent battle sequences which are not bad (although you can see the same scenes repeatedly) and a surprisingly introspective, maybe shakespearean scene with Caesar pondering over power and glory, the meaning of life, or something like that. Another advantage: as the story is set in the winter, you don't have to see Roman warriors fighting in mini-skirts. Here they wear pants and it helps a lot...
