Caesar and Pompey are shown as the only leaders of Rome after Sulla's death. The other member of the triumvirate, Marcus Licinius Crasus, who heavily financed Caesar's rise to Consul, was omitted rather than shift focus from the two. See more »

The story of the politician, general and private man, Julius Caesar.
29 December 2002 | by neuhachSee all my reviews

Julius Caesar is another mini series by the DeAngelis Group. Like some of their other Producions one sees a few well know actors, such as Richard Harris and Christopher Walken , as well as some local actors of Germany and Italy(Heino Ferch, Tobias Moretti).

The picture itself, even not indepth to the real Caesar story, gives an nice picture of the times of the roman empire. Nice acting, as well as a well combined cast, give a nice viewing pleasure.

Jeremy Sisto gives a new angel to a few on Caesar,Chris Noth (Sex & the City) gives a very good performance and Harris plays a Sulla, which you enjoy dying.

All in all, the about 3 hour mini series is a nice evening view for the family, bringing love, war/action as well as history into your living room.
