Flavius Aetius: There is only one fathomable reason why you are here, you *need* me.
Placidia: Why would I need you?
Flavius Aetius: If I had to guess, I say that the Huns are on the move again and you and the rest of Rome are pretified with fear.
Placidia: There are rumors of a new warlord amongst the southern tribes. Attila, do you know him?
Flavius Aetius: No, but I know King Rua. And that is what matters.

"The Romans have done great things but their time is past. What they have done, we can do. We should rule the world!" - Attila
6 February 2005 | by (Glasgow, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

After witnessing the destruction of his village and the death of his father, Attila successfully escapes with his life and is picked up by his uncle, who is king of a group of Huns. Attila grows up to be a strong warrior who has his mind set on invading and, consequently, taking over Rome. The deceitful Roman General Flavius Aetius goes to Attila's village to seek help from the Huns and suggests to Attila's uncle that Attila is to be taken to Rome with Aetius when the battle is over. Aetius is impressed with Attila and takes him under his wing. But when Bleda, Attila's brother, murders their uncle, Attila returns to his village and fights his brother for the throne, and then sets his sights on Rome.

This movie was really enjoyable, although some of the acting was rather stilted. The top actors were Powers Boothe as Flavius Aetius, the excellent Scotsman Gerard Butler in the role of Attila the Hun and, although not having very much to do in the film, only in it for 2 scenes, was Tim Curry who is, as always, terrific and amusing.

This is not a film full of gore, but it survives without it. The action scenes are good and liven the film up a bit but it does not have an excess of gore like other historical battle films.

Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended. 8/10 from me! As always, your faithful Scotsman, Cat §quire
