Brother Against Brother
12 February 2004 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Two brothers battle it out for the love of a slave girl in ancient Babylon. Its got Hammurabi and Zoroaster thrown into the mix of a familial relationship gone sour. It ends with one hell of a flood and a raging fire. (Look for the burning candle that falls on a drowning woman's face.) A perfectly forgettable time killer.
