Beautiful visually. Tremendously enjoyable scenes.
19 January 2001 | by (New York USA) – See all my reviews

I'd heard nothing about this film, then caught a screening. the cinematography is beautiful and the scenes from this film are very funny individually but don't really tie the story together properly.

The two actors who are recruiting soldiers for the Legion are quite possibly the funniest duo ever, but the two travellers William and Luke are to over used with unimportant dialogue. I don't understand why film makers hire unknowns like this for the stars and then someone like Darren Shahlavi (Blood moon is lots of fun) and give him nothing to do, just to put his name on the poster. The film ended up not making much sense, I guess thats the problem with a limited budget, the film looks great but the story which is very interesting needed more explanation, but it is better than Dracula 2000. Overall the film is very enjoyable, it's gory but tasteful and not just a guys film. I give it 8 out of 10
