Storyline

In Gaul in 52 B.C., two Roman soldiers, Legionary Titus Pullo and Centurion Lucius Vorenus, are tasked with recovering Julius Caesar's personal Eagle, stolen from his camp in the dead of night. With his campaign in Gaul coming to a successful conclusion, Caesar's popularity is continuing to grow. He's saddened however when he receives news from his good friend Pompey Magnus that his daughter, Pompey's wife, has died in childbirth. In the Senate, Pompey must defend the prolonged absence of his friend and co-Consul Caesar against charges of corruption and of waging an illegal war. It's all a ruse however as he is plotting to eliminate him. Meanwhile, Atia of the Julii sends her son Octavian to Gaul deliver a gift of a beautiful stallion to his great uncle Julius Caesar. He is taken prisoner along the way. Fortunately, Vorenus and Pullo rescue him and as a result, both receive Caesar's favor. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

While having a chat riding looking for the stolen eagle, Vorenus says he's from Mutina (now Modena, in Emilia-Romagna Italian Region), Pullo says he's (probably) from Ubii tribe, a German one living near actual Cologne (Köln in German, now the biggest city of North Rhine-Westphalia). See more »

Goofs

A talent of gold isn't an amount; it's measurement by weight, roughly equaling about 70 pounds. Marc Antony is given a half talent of gold, roughly 35 pounds, which he carries easily, and in a pouch. In addition, he gives a quarter talent, roughly 18 pounds, to Lucius Vorenus, again handing it over with little effort, indicating the lack of accuracy. See more »

Quotes

Marcus Junius Brutus: Of course, you have to imagine, long hair down to here, huge moustasches, the most terriffic stench, they eat only raw meat and never wash. Though they do have one admirable custom, they settle their political disputes by a single combat to the death.
Pompey Magnus: Excellent idea.
Marcus Junius Brutus: Isn't it? Mother is always nagging me to attend politics.
Servilia of the Junii: Well it's been our family's tradition and duty for, uhm, five hundred years?
Marcus Junius Brutus: Oh it's such dreadfully dull stuff. Now you see, if our senate conducted business in the German ...

A joke as puncuated with the 'breetish' accents plus perversion du jour
2 October 2019 | by rusovietSee all my reviews

The sets look cheap akin to a back lot with minimal use of 'location' but the worst thing is the porn. Give 'Caligula' a run based on the first 20 minutes I viewed before I shut it down. The Brits usually give a good performance but when they imitate Romans they're epecially driven to jump from som,e stage to their moment on screen. It doesn't work and that's why they shove in the porn. The guy who played Caesar was especially 'sour' and I wouldn't think he could ride a horse if his life depended on it - Caesar did it's how he took down Vercingetorix.

If you love depravity then watch it - if you want to be engaged watch the original 'Spartacus'...this is a waste.
