Mira was born in a warrior-family in Kerala, India, was well versed in martial arts and self-defense, so much so that she was recruited by the Spanish royalty and re-located to Constantinople. From there she was instructed to assist Roman Commander Aurelius to plan the escape of 12-year old Romulus Augustus Caesar from a prison in Capri after his parents had been killed by the leader of the Alliance in turmoil-stricken Rome that has seen the deaths of five emperors in five years. Mira, Aurelius, and a Priest, Ambrosinius, along with a handful of loyal soldiers were successful in the escape plan and deliver Romulus to Roman Senator Nestor. What the crew do not realize is that their task is not over yet, for Nestor is all set to betray Romulus, leaving them with no alternative but to flee to Britannia, where they will be forced to confront a seemingly invincible Vortygn, whose main aim is to obtain a powerful sword that was meant for defense and defeat, and also ensure ...

Trivia

Director Doug Lefler says that the story idea started as a film concept at DDLC, then Dino De Laurentiis brought Valerio Manfredi on as a historical consultant and he fell in love with the idea. When progress at DDLC on the film stopped, Valerio Manfredi went off and made a novel of the idea which became successful in Europe and helped get the film going again. See more »

Goofs

The invention of stirrups did not reach the Roman Empire. This invention arrived only after the fall of their reign, around the 7th century. As such the horsemen could not have used stirrups as seen in this film. See more »

Quotes

Aurelius: Who are you?
Ambrosinus: One who knows humiliation to be a poor teacher, of both men and boys.
Aurelius: I smell a philosopher.

What a waste of talent
22 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
