this is a botched historical fiction film that even tho they deny it's porn.. IT IS PORN. Plus include the cast who can't seem to act, it's such a waste of time. p.s. malcolm's so gay here.. :s

Once again my lack of research prior to queuing led to quite the surprise when I threw this one in. I had no idea that it was a Penthouse production. There is no other way to say it--this was porn...with an ounce of history edited in. The balance of sex/story was skewed much too far in the porn direction to call this a good movie yet it was entertaining. As previously mentioned the HBO series Rome has much better balance with the emphasis on story and some debauchery intelligently interlaced in the plot.

This could have been a great movie, it has some wonderful cast, but I couldn't go through all the film, so much bloody pornography! And not erotic scenes, or nudes, REAL PORN! I should have informed myself better... what a waste...
