Movie Details

As one installment in a series of ambitious documentary release canvassing the history of global warfare, this outing hearkens back to the fateful year of 55 A.D., when legendary Roman emperor Julius Caesar set his mind and his heart on seizing control of Britain. Unsurprisingly, the Romans encountered little resistance, but their movements spelled the end of a period of prosperity for the British Isles, whose Celtic tribal inhabitants fell prey to the massive thrust and force of the Roman war apparatus. This program systematically reviews those events, making full and frequent use of pseudo-eyewitness accounts (using actors), dramatically reconstructed scenes and sophisticated CG graphics. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
