Movie Info

The life of the fabled Gallic leader Vercingetorix is brought to the screen in this epic international production. Young Vercingetorix came of age in 60 B.C., as soldiers of the Roman Empire ran roughshod over Gaul and his father was captured and executed by Romans. A wise and philosophical druid, Guttuart (Max Von Sydow), tells the angry Vercingetorix that he should seek justice by winning freedom for Gaul from the Romans. As an adult, Vercingetorix (Christophe Lambert) becomes a brave and insightful warrior, and at first joins forces with the charismatic Julius Caesar (Klaus Maria Brandauer). But in time Vercingetorix is betrayed by the great leader, and soon he raises an army of his own to defeat Caesar and bring Guttuart's prophesy to life. Ines Sastre also appears as Epona, the love of Vercingetorix's life. Vercingetorix was filmed on location in Bulgaria in both French- and English-language versions. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Druids (Vercingétorix)

I wonder if the filmmakers actually thought they had an epic drama on their hands? This was about as silly as Christopher Lambert's wig and as bad as his acting.

Wow, even the critics stayed away from this one...I guess I should have too. A slow moving rough acted movie. If his people had listened to him they might have won. But all that is ancient history...Literally!!!

Hey, this is a great story. But it's a horrible movie. It made Latin class bearable, however, so that's a plus. Look for Vercingetorix (Chris Lambert) to reprise the role of Lord Rayden in 2010's Mortal Kombat.
