A little bit of everything

by David on 11/1/2006

Rome is an excellent series that appears to accurately potray the mood, culture, and circumstances of the events leading up to the rise of Julius Caesar and the proceeding decline of Ancient Rome. An intelligent docu-drama based on historical events, this would appeal to anyone ranging from the history buff to someone who enjoys a mature, thoughtful dramatic series.

Product Overview

(HBO Dramatic Series) Four hundred years after the founding of the Republic, Rome is the wealthiest city in the world, a cosmopolitan metropolis of one million people; epicenter of a sprawling empire. The Republic was founded on principles of shared power and fierce personal competition, never allowing one man to seize absolute control. But now, those foundations are crumbling, eaten away by corruption and excess. After eight years of war, two soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo unwittingly become entwined in the historical events of ancient Rome. A serialized drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, husbands and wives, ROME chronicles a turbulent era that saw the death of the republic and the birth of an empire.Format: DVD MOVIE

ReviewSource Variety
Review Some recent HBO productions have fallen short of the "It's not TV" boast. Amid pressure to deliver, then, "Rome" is a lavish series that offers many lusty pleasures similar to the net's other period drama, "Deadwood." Coarse, initially convoluted and densely populated by roguish characters, it's an intriguing world that hews closer to "I, Claudius" than "Gladiator," with all the expected pay-cable debauchery. (It's not for the faint of heart).

Review As good as "Rome" is -- and it's an epic, multilayered thing of beauty -- it's still not on the level of "The Sopranos" or "The Wire" or "Deadwood." That's almost an unfair comparison, but it's also true. On the other hand, "Rome" unfolds like a marvelously shot big-screen movie, each scene (filmed on location in Italy) dripping with money well spent and a meticulous grandeur that rewards you for paying extra for HBO.
