THE LAST LEGION is a reason to rejoice for action fans who prefer their battle scenes to be composed of flesh and blood rather than megabytes. Based on the novel by Valerio Manfredi, this is a sword-and-sandal epic that deftly weaves a tale of the fall of the Roman Empire with myth and magic, giving US plenty of swordplay and liberal doses of knowingly corny humor. In Rome of 476 A.D., 12-year-old Romulus Augustus (Thomas Sangster) is to be crowned emperor at the same time that barbarian king Odoacer (Peter Mullan) arrives with his fierce warriors-led by brutish Wulfila (Kevin McKidd)-to slaughter everyone in sight. Director Doug Lefler Star Colin Firth, Peter Mullan, Ben Kingsley, Aishwarya Rai, Kevin McKidd, John Hannah, Iain Glen, Thomas Sangster, Rupert Friend Special Features: Full Frame format. Runtime: 110 minutes Year of Release: 2007.
