Goofs

Julius Caesar married Cornelia in 83 BCE and their daughter Julia was born that year or in 82 BCE. As the movie starts in 82 BCE with Sulla establishing his dictatorship, she should not be depicted as a young girl of about 9 years. See more »

Portia: You take the inspiration out of everything!
Marcus Brutus: Rome had to act.

Not bad as TV biopics go, especially for history buffs.
9 August 2003 | by (Jacksonville, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Covering the period from Sulla's occupation of Rome in 82 BC to Julius Caesar's murder in 44 BC, this is a fairly good biography. Some of the details of Caesar's career are touched on only briefly, and some relationships are inaccurate. E.G. Brutus was Cato's son-in-law, Portia was Cato's daughter. The film says Brutus was Cato's nephew. One may be disappointed not to get the dramatic aftermath of the murder, but that would take at least another hour. One might wish for better acting here and there, but you seldom get really great made-for-TV movies. As a lifelong history buff, I found the film entertaining, even instructive once in a while.
