PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, War
As the Roman empire crumbles, young Romulus Augustus flees the city and embarks on a perilous voyage to Britain to track down a legion of supporters.
Director Doug Lefler says that the story idea started as a film concept at the Dino De Laurentiis Company, then Dino De Laurentiis brought Valerio Manfredi on as a historical consultant and he fell in love with the idea. When progress at the Dino De Laurentiis Company on this movie stopped, Valerio Manfredi went off and made a novel of the idea, which became successful in Europe, and helped get this movie going again.
How long is it to climb to the top?
Batiatus: An hour. Faster coming down.
There is a scene near the end where Romulus Augustus is wearing the Caesar's sword scabbard with the shoulder strap over his right shoulder (scabbard on his left hip) and in the next shot, it is hanging from his left shoulder and then in the next shot it is again on his right shoulder.
