Review: Rome 101

With Empire (on ABC last month) so fresh in my mind, taking anymore more of this crap is too much (usually I give a series at least a chance of 2 episodes). This time, also a 6-episode mini-series on HBO, it focuses on slightly different matters, but the outline is still the same. The power struggle to control Rome, everyone is plotting to backstab Caesar. As usual with these movies, we see a whole bunch of unknown Brit actors playing the Romans. Even the director is a Brit. But even Michael Apted can’t shake this boring thing to life. Known for cliche movies (Enough, Extreme Measures), he did bring a bit of depth and drama to the James Bond saga (The World Is Not Enough), but this script is just too much. Guess this Roman bickering will have to do without me.
