Audience Reviews for Roman Empire: Reign of Blood

  • Jul 25, 2020
    The series takes some pretty obvious shortcuts , there are no costume changes and I heard one character scream twice in the exact same way.
  • Jan 28, 2020
    Extremely disappointing. Not only do the characters completely lack depth, it is like the makers went out of their way to make almost every single detail look historically inaccurate: They tick all the boxes of typical mistakes they obviously copied from other series/movies set in Ancient Rome (those horrible cuffs, leather cuirasses, deep cleavages on the actresses), and then they add some more inaccuracies of their own (a beardless Marcus Aurelius, to just name one)! One would expect these things from a mindless action movie, but at the same time they seem to aspire to bring some kind of documentary. By trying to unite two irreconcilable formats, they fail miserably at both.

    Amazing show. The history of the Roman Empire is very interesting.
  • Nov 29, 2018
    A mix of documentary and drama, both of the poorest quality imaginable. Acting and scenes are like watching NPCs roaming around in a cheap video game, and the commentary fails to provide even the most basic explanation of events.
