The Last Legion


Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Last Legion is a fantasy action-adventure in the vein of The Sword and the Stone set against the fall of Rome and its last emperor; 12 year-old Romulus Augustus; the boy who would rule for a day before losing all that he loved: his family; his home; and an empire that once stood for truth and honor. Imprisoned on the island-fortress of Capri; Romulus searches for a means of escape. He discovers instead excaliburnus; the legendary sword of Julius Caesar; and realizes that he must do all in his power to save Rome. Aided by the clever strategies of his teacher; Ambrosinus; and the heroic skills of his loyal legionnaire; Aurelius; Romulus escapes the island. Accompanied by his friends and a mysterious envoy from Constantinople; Romulus travels to Britannia in search of the last Roman Legion the fabled Dragon Legion. There; Romulus will fight alongside his friends to make his last stand for Rome and take his first steps to becoming a man and he king who would father a legend.


Swordfights, battles, and betrayal fuel The Last Legion, which tells the story of the last emperor of Rome: a slight 12-year-old boy who is a descendent of Julius Caesar. Protected by commander Aurelius (Colin Firth) and guided to an extent by the wizard Ambrosinus (Ben Kingsley), Romulus (Thomas Sangster) is an unlikely leader. Too inexperienced to rule wisely, he also shows little of the fortitude and courage needed to be a great warrior. After Romulus finds Caesar's sword--the legendary excaliburnus--he begins a search for the fabled last legion that will help him save Rome. Directed by Doug Lefler and produced by Dino De Laurentiis, the film has a clunky feel, thanks to uneven dialogue and fight sequences that are tepid at best. Portraying a female warrior, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai is a beauty but unconvincing in her athletic skills. Kingsley makes the most of his role, chewing up the scenery and doing the best he can with some laughable lines. But Firth is out of his element here. More thinking man than action hero, the charming Brit is sorely miscast in this movie, which would've benefited from having better CGI animation and, just as importantly, a more developed script. With its broad strokes and lack of character development, The Last Legion actually would've worked better as a half-hour Saturday morning cartoon than a feature-length epic. "i"--Jae-Ha Kim

Net-zero easier and cheaper with nuclear, says French grid operator

Published: Wed, 27 Oct 2021 14:58:09 GMT

France can achieve its net-zero emissions target by 2050 through energy efficiency and electrification that would lead to a 35% increase in electricity demand, the French grid operator has said in a new report.
