To be honest, I wonder how I actually ended up watching this flick but, I guess, it was because there was a pretty cool cast involved. Apparently, after the success of ‘El Cid’, they decided to make another movie directed by Anthony Mann and starring Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren but, apparently, Heston didn’t get along at all with Loren on that film and he refused to work with her again.... read more

Epics are hard. It’s very easy to give in to the bloated pageantry of much of the genre, but terribly hard to ascend beyond it.

" Director: Anthony Mann Starring: Sophia Loren, Stephen Boyd, Alec Guinness, James Mason, Christopher Plummer, Mel Ferrer and Omar Sharif Action-packed look at the beginnings of the fall of the Roman Empire. Here is the glory, the greed and grandeur that was Rome. Here is the story of personal lust for power and the shattering effects of that power's loss. Here is the tale of the plight of a people living on the brink of a political abyss. "
