The Roman Emperor Trajan has just murdered all the local men of Dacia and holds a military stronghold in what will later become Rumania. He places a Roman centurion in his place to occupy his latest conquest. After lopping off the head of the Dacian warlord, the soldier uses his blood-stained hands to dine on cheese and bread, unable to suppress his laughter. The centurion has a change of heart when he is put in charge of the region, freely dispensing justice and forgiveness to the conquered inhabitants. When the peace is threatened by marauding barbarians in masks of fur, the locals help the Romans fend off the invasion.

Bobby D (au) wrote: The film didn't work for me. Slow paced and meandering, something the real Ali wasn't. Will Smith seems miscast and doesn't seem to capture Ali's unique style and charisma. The film suffers from a bad script and could easily be cut down by an hour. I hope someone does a new Ali story someday and avoids the mistakes in this one.

It had funny and serious moments. It was corny and silly with the body changing shit, but the animals were cute.

William W (gb) wrote: Recently I've considered drastically negatively re-appraising Clint Eastwood's work, both directorially and as a thespian, as a knee-jerk reaction to his constant defense of the more racially-bigoted face of conservative America, but because of what his work has meant to me as a cinephile over the years, plus in tribute to everyone else's work involved in this film, particularly director Don Siegel's, that simply wouldn't be fair.As well, you're basically getting, boiled down in its 103-minute timespan, 45 years after the fact, the main dilemma facing the USA. Whose rights are more important--the good guys' or the bad guys'? If they're equal, should they be considered equal, and what does that mean to the law enforcement and judicial systems?Quite simply, THE most important American-made film of the past 50 years. NOT my very favourite (that's '2001: A Space Odyssey'), but the most significant.And it hasn't aged a single day because of it.

The two women at the end reminded me of Ingmar Bergman's Persona. But this film falls short of that kind of brilliance.
Stefanie C (br) wrote: Black comedy, Italian style. Delightfully satirical. Germi explores an antiquated law that eradicates rape if the parties marry. Peppino doesn't want to marry Agnese because she is no longer virginal: "The man has the right to ask; the woman has a duty to refuse." But, why would Agnese want to marry her seducer? Chaos ensues in defense of family and honor.
Tanner B (nl) wrote: Enemy of the State (1998) C-134m. ??? D: Tony Scott. Will Smith, Gene Hackman, Jon Voight, Regina King, Barry Pepper, Jason Lee, Jason Robards. Defense lawyer against his will falls victim to nonstop NSA investigation after he accidentally gets a hold of key evidence to a corrupted politician's insidious murder crime. His life goes down the drain until he finally receives help from an unlikely source. Slick, crackling thriller with a particularly satisfying wrap-up.

Reeves is such a shit actor and I love him for it. The surf Nazi gang with black member crack me up. That scene with Utah unloading his pistol in the air is probably the most emotional moment in the history of cinema. Some unbelievable dialogue from Pappas "Harp, I want to tell you something. I was in this bureau when you were still popping zits on your funny face and jerking off with the lingerie section of the sears catalogue" and the excellent ", Listen you snot-nose little shit, I was takin' shrapnel in Khe Sanh when you were crappin' in your hands and rubbin' it on your face". Love the soundtrack aswell Hendrix - If 6 was 9, PIL - Criminal and Love 7 and 7 is,
