Hmmm a cross breed here with a mix of historical fact ,or what we know, blended with your typical over the top action sillyness much like 'Prince of Thieves'. There are some nice touches here from the cityscape's and landscapes rendered in cgi to the attempt at telling the real t...

An interesting premiss, but too many inconsistencies and a mixing of some nice sets intertwinned with some horrible cgi.
What starts out passably reasonable turns silly once the "seige" on Capri begins - the baddie Goths running around a south mediterrenean island wearing furs...

The Last Legion just didn't click with me. It lacked the crucial sense of "epic-ness" that movies of this ilk need. The cast was unexciting, the story flew by without making an impression, it was just not fun to watch.
The whole King Arthur connection seemed to be just tacked on...

I think the main reason I watched this was Colin Firth well I think I made a mistake so did he, And Aishwarya Rai is annoying like always & her character in this movie is annoying too, One star for the sake of its final sequence well I mean the way I interpreted it for myself

Pretentious and flawed, but decent enough to be worth the watch.

a senses satisfying bit of fantasy/history, eh, w/ben kingsley having some little fun as a teacher to the future king, colin firth as errol flynn and that king's in-over-his-head protector, and aishwarya rai as the saucy bit w/a knife, a sword, and a assortment of other implement...

Overall, it's a good premise and provides a decently interesting version of the creation of Excalibur, but if you're expecting Arthur and his Knights to right around the corner any minute, you'll be disappointed. For the most part, the movie pretty well sailed on its own, but ex...
