  • The film would serve as an entertaining educational tool if it weren't for excessive blood and a generous amount of exposed skin.

    Gerard Butler and Powers Boothe, first friends then enemies, drive this biopic that serves as a history lesson really about a name far more popular and remembered than the deeds of this larger than life bloodthirsty character. For a television production its values are quite good if whitewashed. Attila is portrayed as the guy next door driven to unusual lengths by the acts of others in this telling, and not the ambition driven dynamo that history usually paints him as. Butler just manages to keep his head above water with the requirements the acting job makes on him, while Powers Boothe comes across as the real star of the show, a malevolent spider with his sticky claws in everything and he holds the thing together. Learn about the start of the Dark Ages, why not?

    Made-for-TV quality. The famous Gerard Butler doesn't really shine. I'm still not convinced it was really him....

    Attila the film is a biopic of a great Hun who was a shrewd tactician who cared deeply about the welfare of his people, genuinely believed his conquered subjects were better off under him, and therefore strived to rule with justice. Rollo Weeks was only in the very beginning of the movie as young Attila, but his acting was wonderful! I viewed Attila because I wanted to see more of Gerard Butler THE ACTOR and I was not disappointed. The adult Attila played by Butler, was quite good at capturing Attila's warlike side and his more cerebral, introspective side. This fantastic Scottish rogue was captivating and so gorgeously handsome that it was a little difficult to pay attention to his acting when all I could think of is his good looks and what was under his armor. And those eyes wow!!!!! Nevertheless I got to learn more about a historical figure who always intrigued me. The screenplay shows his respect to the great Roman strategist Flavius Aetius magnificently played by Powers Boothe who used his mind as primary weapon and his influence as power combined with an almost Machiavellian ruthlessness. I also liked Pauline Lynch as Galen the witch. The look she gives him after teasing him about the feisty red-haired woman is so poignant. I feel like her. 'Here's this amazing guy that will never notice me, the crazy toadstool'.

    3 minutes shy of 3 hours this TV movie it's just great a classic and a legend by itself and you can see how low budget it looks and still it doesn't tire you and I didn't even feel the 3 hours!! wow and that is a lot!! what more can I say Gerard another great pick on your career and a great character that you made come to life here!! it is awesome!! A romanced story of Attila the Hun, since his childhood, when he lost his parents until his death. Attila is disclosed as a great leader, strategist and lover and the movie shows his respect to the great Roman strategist Flavius Aetius, his loves and passions, the gossips, intrigues and betrayals in Rome, all of these feelings evolved by magic and mysticism During the days of Roman Empire, the barbarian Huns are making their way toward Europe. A warrior named Attila assumes Hun leadership and unites the clans under his banner. Attila seeks to form an e...( read more )mpire, and he sees Rome, under the leadership of the incompetent Caesar Valentinian, ripe for the picking. In an attempt to quell a Hun invasion, ambitious Roman general Flavius Aetius attempts to form an alliance against Attila with their mutual enemy, Visigoth King Theodoric. But his plan backfires, and it becomes clear that a violent showdown between all three armies awaits.
