Storyline

Katherine of Alexandria, brought up as a nomad and living in the desert, was aged just 11 when Emperor Maxentius saw her whilst out on patrol. Consumed by her beauty, impudence and uncanny talent for languages, he abducted the child, killing her family. The slaughter was witnessed by her young friend, Constantine, who would later become Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. He never lost hope of finding Katherine. As a young woman, Katherine refused to submit to Maxentius' offers of marriage and she continually denounced his brutal enforcement of pagan religion upon the masses. Still obsessed with her beauty, Maxentius brought Katherine before 50 of Rome's finest scholars in an open court in Alexandria, where she eloquently demolished their arguments. When Constantine learned of Katherine's whereabouts and imprisonment at the hands of Maxentius, he led his army from York in a desperate bid to save her. Written by Anonymous

24 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of historical fact based drama films. Coming across Katherine of Alexandria and discovering Edward Fox and Peter O'Toole were amongst it's the cast, I was very eager to watch it.

I wasted 108 minutes of my life! Poor (at best) acting and directing, "history" rewritten by the film studio and a general wondering if the whole movie was shot using cheap camcorders.

On the plus side, now I have seen it maybe I am able to steer others away from it. Then maybe my 108 minutes would not seem so futile.

1/10 because IMDb won't let me rate at 0. I will have to watch Lawrence of Arabia now to remind me how great Peter O'Toole was.
