Trivia

First-century reports tell that Boudica had two daughters, but fail to mention their names. Dramatic or fictionalized accounts often make up names for these daughters for narrative purposes. The fate of the daughters is not known: some legends have them both perishing along with Boudica, while others have one or both surviving and living on in obscurity. See more »

Quotes

Severus: We want to build a true partnership here. In this case, we'll work together to subdue all the surrounding tribes, thus extending Prasutagus's kingdom and allowing it to flourish without the threat of bloody conflict.
Dervalloc: Well, I say we kill these Romans now. Send them back to their emperor in pieces.
Prasutagus's men: Yeah!
King Prasutagus: [to his men] Hold still. Hold your tongues.

King Prasutagus: Dervalloc, these are our guests, and I will not suffer them to be threatened and insulted.
Boudica: [to Severus] Our people are poets. When ...

Very good, very bad at the same time
19 September 2004 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

It's got some great sets and costumes, a fantastic, frankly groundbreaking soundtrack of calling vocals, and spectacular deeply theatric moments, basically any time the characters aren't actually speaking is OK. The dialogue is fundamentally awful, Romans are one-dimensionally bad, absurdly condescending and arrogant, and barbarians good. Obviously the writer wanted to make this a commentary about current politics, referring to Icenians as "terrorists", a concept which did not exist at the time. In fact, many lines such as "For God's sake!" would not exist for this setting.

I don't suppose anyone could tell me the reason why all the Roman soldiers have cockney accents either.

To watch this film, you've got to have a sense of humor for the dialogue which is utterly painful. The Romans are written so badly on such a deep level one can take amusement in it. But it can't be described, laughed at, and appreciated as a bad B-movie, there are quality stirring dramatic moments there and any humor you see in it is killed by the prolonged gang rape scene, which is not a gratuitous addition but a serious, fundamental part of the historical accounts of the real Boudicca.

This film is without compare in its strengths and weaknesses and I'm wholly at a loss to classify it or say exactly how one should appreciate it. You will have to decide for yourself and tell me.
