Plot Summary: "The Last legion" is a fantasy action-adventure in the vein of "The Sword and the Stone" set against the fall of Rome and its last emperor, 12 year-old Romulus Augustus, the boy who would rule for a day before losing all that he loved: his family, his home, and an empire that once stood for truth and honor. Imprisoned on the island-fortress of Capri, Romulus searches for a means of escape. He discovers instead "excaliburnus," the legendary sword of Julius Caesar, and realizes that he must do all in his power to save Rome. Aided by the clever strategies of his teacher, Ambrosinus, and the heroic skills of his loyal legionnaire, Aurelius, Romulus escapes the island. Accompanied by his friends and a mysterious envoy from Constantinople, Romulus travels to Britannia in search of the last Roman Legion – the fabled Dragon Legion. There, Romulus will fight alongside his friends to make his last stand for Rome and take his first steps to becoming a man and he king who would father a legend.

EN 5 Second Review: Just a complete snoozefest. Give me my CGI, No one is this nostalgic! Aishwarya Rai is cute as a button and tough as nails though in making the transition from Bollywood to Hollywood.

The Last Legion is more quaint than thrilling, but it's refreshing to see an old style sword fighting movie that's not completely dependent on the use of digital trickery
Brian Webster: Apollo Guide
You’ve perhaps got to be a bit sceptical when the main appeal of a swords and horses action movie is an almost melancholic nostalgia rather than a pure adrenalin rush...more

Once you accept The Last Legion for what it is, namely a Saturday adventure matinee show aimed at impressionable 10-year-old boys, then you'll have a passable time at the cinema . . . Sort of
James O'Ehley: SA Movies
As long as you're not expecting Gladiator (rather think those Steve Reeves sandal epics of yesteryear) then you'll be reasonably entertained by this adventure “epic” - and as long as you have a healthy sense of irony about you...more
