A vengeful gladiator and a young noblewoman find love against the odds in 1st century Italy. Cheesy disaster-themed tosh (though never quite camp, Kiefer Sutherland’s panto villain aside), mashing up Titanic and Gladiator to cliched CG-tastic effect. A medium-budget B-movie, and unashamedly so.
Here’s the trailer.

Sutherland is amazing in this film….
One of those performances where he’s in a different movie from everyone else. A ripe slice of luscious ham from beginning to end.
