Disappointing mishmash
1 February 2003 | by ms94801See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Lindsey Davis' mystery series set in First Century Rome, and was really disappointed by this filmic conflation of several of her early Marcus Didius Falco novels. The primary flaw, which spoils anything good in the movie (and there IS some good stuff here) is the woeful miscasting of Bryan Brown as Falco. I've loved Brown in several other movies, but he isn't the guy for this role. Most especially distressing is his lower-class Aussie accent, which is completely wrong for Falco -- he could never have won the heart of a Senator's daughter talking like this!

It's really a shame, because the Falco series deserves a treatment like what the BBC provided for "I, Claudius." It's that good.
