Hollywood strikes again
28 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

Hollywood strikes again. The miniseries trys to cram too much into too little time. The first part was great mainly due to Timothy Dalton. He played a very strong Caesar. The second part lost its drive. I don't know if it was casting or plot. Just watch the first part. You know what happens in the end anyway.
