Somewhat Interesting, Though Flawed
29 May 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This might be one of the earliest attempts to make a historical spectacle on film, and it's fairly interesting even though it's not really that good. It offers a look at the mad emperor Nero, with some settings and props that are rather lavish for its era. The sets and the characterization of Nero ring mostly true. The same cannot be said for the story; you don't have to know all that much about Roman history to realize that they took some liberties with historical events. At times it is also surprisingly slow. It's mostly worth watching to take a look at some of the means they used in trying to recreate the world of ancient Rome on film.
