Put bluntly, the difference between El Cid and Fall is the difference between faith in a concept of heroism that can transcend even death.

While The Fall of the Roman Empire is even more technically assured than El Cid, it's less interesting narrative-wise.

From back in the day when epic meant upwards of 10,000 extras, gargantuan sets, and 122-piece other words, CGI is for wimps.

Spectacular crowd scenes, costumes and snow-filled landscapes mix with intelligent, powerful pro-peace and Civil Rights commentary.

Commodus, played here by the flamboyant Christopher Plummer, forsakes the Pax Romana and turns Rome into an empire of camp.
