Quotes

[on Appolonius]
Portia: I'll bet he ran off to fight with the rebel slaves.
Julia: *Those* slaves are not like Appolonius. They aren't educated men with happy homes.
Portia: Well, we had a Morish cook who ran off about a month ago to join the rebels. We heard he had been promoted to commander. From cook to commander! It's so inspiring...
Marcus Brutus: You talk of it as if it's a game, Portia.
Portia: I don't!

A curiosity, but not much else
13 July 2005 | by Paris-6See all my reviews

With actors like Christopher Walken, Chris Noth, and Richard Harris, you'd expect something more from the lead, but unfortunately Sisto doesn't seem to have been a good casting choice. He just doesn't have the ability to play one of the most important men in history, especially surrounded by actors of the caliber that the others are. Anyone who has seen Rex Harrison as Caesar might ought to avoid this one altogether or risk cringe after cringe. Though Sisto does try, and gives a better performance than Klaus Maria Brandauer as Caesar in "Druids/Vercingetorix", the best parts about this movie are the sets and the supporting actors. The story is not that compellingly presented and often the dialogue is quite wooden. It's a shame Richard Harris had to go out like this.
