Bear witness to the rise of the most corrupt and ruthless ruler ever to preside over the Roman Empire as filmmaker Paul Marcus tells the tale of Nero's unlikely ascent to the throne, and his historical fall at the hands of his own vengeful kingdom. After murdering his sister's husband on grounds of conspiracy, the increasingly incoherent Caligula exiles his grieving sibling and sets into motion a devious plan that will one-day find her son Lucius presiding over all of Rome. Beset on all sides by tyranny and bloodlust, Lucius rises to power as Nero while facing the constant wrath of all who oppose his legacy. His paranoia soon reaching a fever pitch, Nero struggles to maintain power as his army, his people, and his own mother, ultimately turn against him. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This was a terribly boring, badly acted movie. The worst part is that the label on the dvd said that it was only 100 minutes...HOWEVER it ended up over 3 hours long! We kept thinking..well, it's almost over...but three hours later it finally ended!

Hans Matheson in lead role of Nero
was well done, good cinematography
but a bit too long - 3 hours but it was
well worth watching once only. HM a
bit young for leading role, but he is
awesome in The Virgin Queen for
PBS -- an up and coming actor.
