Mira was born in a warrior-family in Kerala, India, was well versed in martial arts and self-defense, so much so that she was recruited by the Spanish royalty and re-located to Constantinople. From there she was instructed to assist Roman Commander Aurelius to plan the escape of 12-year old Romulus Augustus Caesar from a prison in Capri after his parents had been killed by the leader of the Alliance in turmoil-stricken Rome that has seen the deaths of five emperors in five years. Mira, Aurelius, and a Priest, Ambrosinius, along with a handful of loyal soldiers were successful in the escape plan and deliver Romulus to Roman Senator Nestor. What the crew do not realize is that their task is not over yet, for Nestor is all set to betray Romulus, leaving them with no alternative but to flee to Britannia, where they will be forced to confront a seemingly invincible Vortygn, whose main aim is to obtain a powerful sword that was meant for defense and defeat, and also ensure ...

Trivia

Romulus' throne was built specifically so that the feet of 15-year-old Thomas Brodie-Sangster would not touch the floor when he sat in it to reinforce the perception of a small child being dwarfed by events going on about him. See more »

As they are climbing over the mountain pass, Romulus is riding on the back of Batiatus wearing a pair of very modern climbing boots. See more »

A waste of an hour and a half
24 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I was so looking forward to this film. I read the book by Valerio Massimo Manfredi about 4 or 5 years ago and when i heard it was going to be a film i was delighted but now i have seen it i feel so let down. The story has been so diluted that it makes no sense. Epic journeys that they undertake are over in the time it takes to change the position your sat in and characters which are important to the story just seem to have been overlooked. They have made this film without giving any of the characters a foundation and this just led me to find it all a bit forced.

Sometimes i complain when a film is too long but with this it could have done with at least an other forty five minutes, in fact i found it too short. I don't understand how a love interest can happen in the click of a finger yet they had time to try to put comedy into a fantasy epic ( and i use the word very lightly ).

The script is poor The cinematography is poor The direction is poor The casting is so so
