When the special effect in a movie are better than the movie itself one starts to wonder. Hayden Christensen delivers a better performance than in his previous movies, but that in his case doesn’t say much. Any B movie actor could have played Samuel L. Jackson’s part and we wouldn’t have noticed, why he chose to star in this movie is beyond me. Diane Lane could have used more screen time, she gives the most solid performance. Rachel Bilson looks way out of her league, it’s as if she doesn’t want to be there and she shouldn’t be. Anna Sophia Robb will become quite a beauty when she grows up. Other than that, poorly undeveloped plot, though the idea was interesting and it could have led to something better. Oh and it was nice to see the inside of the Colosseum for a change.

Rating: 7/10
