Robbo Would Not Approve

I doubt it is faithful to the classic The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire which certainly graces Robbo's bookshelves at stately Orgle Manor. But the flick does have one redeeming aspect, it features this Bollywood babe:

YIPS! from Robbo: In fact, I rented this from Netflix some time within the past year and, truth be told, found it oddly appealling, in part due to the aforementioned Bollywood Babe and in part due to the sheer comedic value of watching Colin Firth try to play a battle-hardened Roman Army commander. If that really was the kind of material Rome had to work with in the 5th Century A.D., no wonder the Empire was overrun by the barbarians.

I for one, like the looks of it. And the Arthur/Rome connection has been done before, with mixed success, for instance the 2004 movie King Arthur, and the 1980 novel Firelord.
