I watched The Last Legion with some hope, but not that much and was still disappointed. What starts as a huge CGI filled epic, goes into a weak,empty story with not the best acting,action and a terrible story.
The acting talents and chances of a good film as so badly wasted and in parts the film seems to not know what it wants to be.Action film, Epic historic tale, kids adventure and even comic farce, which was a huge mistake.
Its empty and totally soulless.The ending is so bad, so very very bad that Myself and a friend sat stunned.lol
Its such a great shame that the main star of ROME the TV series was anywhere near this film.Rome it totally superior in every way. If you want a well written,acted and totally realistic version of Rome, see ROME don't waste your time on this.
