Follow along as Julius Caesar and his Roman Legions lay siege upon Gaul - now modern-day France - in this film exploring just how Caesar's initially tenuous involvement in the bloody inter-tribal Gallic warfare eventually turned into a full-fledged mission of command and conquest. Though his actions at first raised genuine concern Italian security, Rome's most powerful commander was about to hatch one of his most daring plans. To this day Caesar's account of the Gallic Wars offers one of the most compelling depictions of life in First Century Gaul B.C.-era Gaul ever recorded. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
The film was informative, but has the usual drawbacks of History Channel features: unimaginative action and untalented actors, with few or no speaking parts. The Caesar (who will not make you forget Cyrian Hinds (Rome)) would have told about the battles from memory. He would not have read it lifelessly from a scroll. The man who portrayed Vercengetrix also had little charisma.
