Movie Review: The Last Legion


Featuring: Colin Firth, Ben Kingsley, Aishwarya Rai

Genre: action, history

Plot: the destiny of the last Caesar

Acting: we already know that Ben Kingsley and Colin Firth can act… as for Aishwarya Rai she’s too cute for such thing to matter

Drama: going to battle against the enemy knowing there’s no way to win

Action: cool one on one fighting scenes

Funny: yes, at times, but not overdone

Visuals: the cinematic was pleasant to the eye all through the movie

Soundtrack: -

Comments: If I say I liked it better than Alexander will you believe it? It’s done as a historic piece, but with a strong legend feel to it, after all it’s set before King Arthur’s time, and this being said don’t waste your time looking for inaccuracies, just take it for what it is and enjoy it. Kingsley is a toned down Merlin and not his usual annoying charming self, Firth is not too old to fight yet and Rai can kick ass big time. Even the kid is cute, though I spent half of the movie wondering where I had seen him before. And the best part is that in the end the hero doesn’t die, yey!

Rating: 3/5
