Storyline

In Roman-dominated Egypt, the corrupt administration of a governor named Petronius has sparked a revolt headed by El Kabir, a young man who learns that he's actually the son of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar. When Petronius' daughter, Livia, newly-arrived from Rome, falls into his hands, El Kabir uses this opportunity to win her over to his side before releasing her to her father. Livia's efforts to promote peace, however, are thwarted, and only the arrival of Octavian Caesar can bring about a resolution to the troubled situation. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Nice Surprise!
8 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Son of Cleopatra was included in the DVD Son of Samson that I had ordered through Amazon. I had ordered Son of Samson, because I am a Chelo Alonso fan. I held no expectations for Son Of Cleopatra, so I was happily surprised by this near epic movie. It was filmed in both Rome and Egypt. The acting was excellent for this sort of film, because with the exception of Mark Damon, it was an all Italian-Egyptian cast. They were great actors! There are innumerous amounts of people in some of the battle scenes. I suppose to pay that many people; they must have been citizens of Egypt at that time. The battles were excellent. The plot was thick, and action suspenseful. This is definitely a better than average Gladiator movie superbly directed. Sadly Son of Samson fell to second place behind this Desert Oasis. The quality of the DVD was very good, and the color was impressive.
