The Last Legion. It aint so bad...
This movie came and went faster than Damone in “Fast times at Ridgemont High”.
It played in theaters here for like a week and then bombed out. It’s a Sword & Sandal movie starring Gandhi, Vorenus from HBO’s “Rome”, an Uber-hot Bollywood chick and half the cast of “Love Actually”. It’s a totally un historical attempt at melding The last days of the Roman Empire with the Excalibur legend. Forget history (trust me the writers sure did) and sit back and enjoy a cool team mission flick. Watch The Last Legion for the sword fights, the costumes, the hot Bollywood chick, and basically for the geeky fun of it.
If you’re a Sword and Sorcery Geek like me you will have no problem sitting through this one and having a good time.
Classic cinema? No way.
Cheesy sword-fest? Pretty much.
Worth your time as gamer flick? Oh yeah.
Check out Uber-hot Bollywood chick slice her way through a bunch of NPC's.
