SA Movie & DVD
James O'Ehley quote icon Once you accept The Last Legion for what it is, namely a Saturday adventure matinee show aimed at impressionable 10-year-old boys, then you'll have a passable time at the cinema... Sort of.

The Citizen
Bruce Dennill quote iconThis is Gladiator through a Mills & Boon filter.
