WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

40

Variety by Joe Leydon

Seriously hampered by glaring inconsistencies of tone and intent, and often feels like a series of highlights carved out of a much longer epic.
63

TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

While not exactly in the same league as the visually dazzling "Excalibur" and saddled with cheap looking CGI effects, this Anglo-Italian co-production has quite a bit of fun finding a direct path from the fall of Rome to the birth of Arthurian legend.
50

The A.V. Club by Nathan Rabin

Though it's never wise to underestimate the power or universal appeal of Rai's cleavage and lustrous hair, that's about all that sets the doggedly mediocre The Last Legion apart from every other sword-and-sandal epic about the origins of Camelot.
50

Boston Globe by Wesley Morris

The film is nothing to be ashamed of (especially if you're Kingsley). But it's as if everybody involved knows what the deal is.
