Storyline

Young Vercingetorix came of age in 60 B.C., as soldiers of the Roman Empire ran roughshod over Gaul and his father was captured and executed by Romans. A wise and philosophical druid, Guttuart, tells the angry Vercingetorix that he should seek justice by winning freedom for Gaul from the Romans. As an adult, Vercingetorix becomes a brave and insightful warrior, and at first joins forces with the charismatic Julius Caesar. But in time Vercingetorix is betrayed by the great leader, and soon he raises an army of his own to defeat Caesar and bring Guttuart's prophesy to life. Written by Anonymous

It took a lot of gaul to attempt this mess
13 September 2018 | by arthur_taferoSee all my reviews

This film has an official one-star rating from the primary reviewer on the IMDB entry for this film. I'm sorry, but that rating was too high. It should have been titled "How to Waste 15 million dollars made by some knuckleheads in France" or "The Human Umbrella Forehead Saves the Druids". I never thought I would EVER see worse casting for Caesar in my life than Marlon Brando, but this film outdid that catastrophe. I thought I was watching a conehead skit from SNL.
