Spectacle, history and romance collide to make a messy epic
4 August 2008 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Huge scale historical romance set against the backdrop of the Rome/ Carthage wars in the 2nd century BC. The production is amazing with a scale and a look that few films, even the Hollywood epics ever matched. As jaw dropping spectacle the film is top of the heap. However the film suffers from a storyline that is at best soap opera as a wounded soldier is saved by a priestess who falls in love with him while he has love elsewhere. Things get complicated as the soldier leaves to rescue his lady love with the priestess in tow, causing a great deal of friction for everyone. At the same time the Romans attack Carthage…and then it gets even more complicated. It seemed to have been plotted by a monkey on espresso who just wanted to keep things movie, since there is way too much going on since after awhile I began to get lost.(being tired didn't help either).Its not bad its just ..please stop enough already. Worth a look for those who like spectacle or for those who like historical romance.
