CALIGULA REVIEW *CONTAINS SPOILERS*

Choose file... or enter url:
WELL WHERE DO I BEGIN,IT IS AN IMPORTANT MOVIE IN FILM HISTORY BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER MOVIE LIKE CALIGULA NOR SHALL THERE BE A MOVIE LIKE CALIGULA EVER AGAIN IN THE HISTORY OF FILM. IN CASE U DIDN'T KNOW THIS MOVIE IS PART PORN, IT FEATURES A PLOT(NOT A VERY GOOD ONE)AND BIG NAME ACTORS LIKE MALCOLM MCDOWELL, PETER O'TOOLE, HELEN MIRREN AND JOHN GIELGUD. ITS THE ONLY MOVIE TO EVER MIX FAMOUS ACTORS WITH HARDCORE PORNOGRAPHY ON SUCH AN EPIC SCALE. THE FILM IS NEARLY 3 HOURS OF POWER HUNGRY MADNESS. THE STORY IS ABOUT THE RISE AND FALL OF CALIGULA AS HE BECOMES RULER OF PAGAN ROME. THERE IS ONE SCENE OF JOY IN THE BEGINNING AND THEN THATS IT BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELT,AS CALIGULA GAINS POWER OVER THE ROMAN EMPIRE IT THEN STARTS TO CORRUPT HIM AND SO HE EMBARKS ON MANY ACTS OF CRUELTY, CALIGULA MAINLY KILLS HIS INNOCENT VICTIMS OUT OF BOREDOM OR JUST FOR THE FUN OF SEEING SOMEONE DIE A SLOW DEATH. MALCOLM MCDOWELL'S PERFORMANCE IS VERY BELIEVABLE AND STRIKING, HE PLAYS THAT CRAZY MOTHER FUCKER TO A TEE (WELL I SHOULDN'T SAY MOTHER FUCKER BECAUSE CALIGULA HAS A THREESOME WITH HIS SISTER AND HIS WIFE! A LITTLE GROSS AND WEIRD!), NO ONE PLAYS A VICIOUS PYSCO LIKE MALCOLM MCDOWELL. PETER O'TOOLE PLAYS CALIGULA'S OLD ASSHOLE GRANDPA WHO IS JUST AS BRUTAL AS CALIGULA, HELEN MIRREN IS PRETTY DAMN HOTT IN THIS MOVIE, IT BEING 1979, AND JOHN GIELGUD KILLS HIMSELF WITHIN THE FIRST 30 MINUTES. THE PLOT SOLEY FOCUSES ONLY ON THE ATROCITIES DONE BY CALIGULA RATHER THAN HIS LIFE STORY AND THE HARDCORE PORN THROWN IN BY PENTHOUSE CREATOR BOB GUCCIONE DOESN'T FURTHER OR HELP THE STORY ONE BIT. THE PORN IN THIS ISN'T EVEN "EROTIC" IT DOESN'T TURN U ON AT ALL, IT JUST KIND OF SHOWS IT TO U. THIS HAD POTENTIAL TO BE A VERY VERY GREAT FILM HAD IT HAVE A BETTER PLOT, MINUS THE PORN AND A LESS DEPRESSING ENDING (IN WHICH CALIGULA, HIS WIFE , DAUGHTER AND FRIEND ARE ALL BRUTALLY MURDERED, EVEN THOUGH HE DESERVED TO DIE.) ITS A GOOD MOVIE BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER, BUT ITS UNLIKE ANYTHING U HAVE EVER SEEN BEFORE, IF U ARE A FILM BUFF THAN THIS IS A MUST SEE.
