'Peplum'


  1. millotpue
  2. Millo

That is the name for movies about romans or greeks, or, in general, set in Ancient Eras. Here I just talk about Roman Empire and Classic Greece, putting in the first places the modern versions, and in the last positions the old ones.

For me, the real film that shows that you can make a good historical movie again. Tell us the story of Hypathia, the last great scientific of antiquity, a woman that defended that philosophy and knowledge were something important, model for feminists and scientifics. Takes us to Alexandria in the time of Romans, shows as the famous Lighthouse and the Library, and talks mainly about religious intolerance. A movie against fanatism, then and ever, in which we can find lots of things in common with our present time. Very intelligent movie, and a song directed to stars.

Donīt understand why people is so impressed about this film. If you have seen Braveheart previously, itīs almost a copy, point-by-point. And the end, of course, itīs a direct punch to real history.

Unconvincing story, not very amusing. Tries to get from feeling from the hard times of Judah and his family, but only the points about his family are interesting enough. If you like 'peplums', Charlton Heston, or you really love Christian movies, you will like it, but I don't see anything more to admire.
