interesting drama-documentary on the real story.
30 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like the rest of the "Heroes and Villains" series (Attila, Napoleon, Cortes, Richard the Lionheart and Shogun) this is an enjoyable dramatised version of the real events surrounding the character of Spartacus. You might be sad to find there's no "I am Spartacus" scene but the story and fight canes are well presented, despite not having the big bucks of a major production.

My only reservation is that for a leader who created such problems for the Roman Empire, Spartacus is portrayed as being very indecisive and wishy-washy at times (not the fault of the actor, who does a wonderful job).
