Circa 460 A.D. Mira was born in a warrior-family in Kerala, British India, was well versed in martial arts and self-defense, so much so that she was recruited by the Spanish royalty and re-located to Constantinople. From there she was instructed to assist Roman Commander Aurelius to plan the escape of 12-year old Romulus Augustus Caesar from a prison in Capri after his parents had been killed by the leader of the Alliance in turmoil-stricken Rome that has seen the deaths of five emperors in five years. Mira, Aurelius, and a Priest, Ambrosinius, along with a handful of loyal soldiers were successful in the escape plan and deliver Romulus to Roman Senator Nestor. What the crew do not realize is that their task is not over yet, for Nestor is all set to betray Romulus, leaving them with no alternative but to flee to Britannia, where they will forced to confront a seemingly invincible Vortygn, whose main aim is to obtain a powerful sword that was meant for defense and defeat, and also ensure the death of Romulus at any and all costs.



Kingsley's character: Ambrosinus / Merlin.

The most recent film of Kingsley's I've seen. I believe it didn't get many good reviews, but I thought it was OK. His son Ferdinand was in it too, as "The Druid"... I must admit I couldn't pick him out on the screen... Anyway...

I saw this at the weekend on DVD and my son's house. I thought it was much better than the critics say.

A French DVD review article on the internet, written by a Yannick Gallepie classes BK's role in this film as "even more ridiculous than BloodRayne". I hate this sort of criticism. First of all, it isn't true, and secondly, I don't agree with putting personal opinions in articles of this nature. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I like him very much as Ambrosinus. When I first saw this film, I saw it in French, so obviously you couldn't tell if one of the characters had an accent or not. Then when I watched it in English on the DVD, I was quite surprised that Ambrosinus spoke with a Welsh accent. It was very well done.

It's not fair that it got such bad reviews. It's not as grand as say, "King Arthur" or "Kingdom of Heaven", but it's got a good story.
