Full movie description "Caesar the Conqueror":In 54 B.C. Julius Caesar seeks to solidify his position in Rome by putting down a rebellion in Gaul led by a tribal chieftain named Vercingetorix. Vercingetorix has rallied many tribes to his cause, including one led by the beautiful Queen Asterix and others who'd once pledged allegiance to Rome. At first things go badly for the Romans, complicated by the fact that Vercingetorix has captured and tortured a centurion named Claudius Valerius who's in love with Caesar's ward, Publia, who has also fallen into the hands of Vercingetorix. Eventually a great battle pitting Caesar against the rebellious Gaul decides the fate of all concerned.
Reviews of the Caesar the ConquerorHere's a low-budget but epic-looking peplum movie which begins with lots of suspenseful court intrigue as the Roman senate conspire against Caesar, and ends with a predictable but rousing battle sequence which leaves bodies strewn asunder. Now to many people this will just seem like another typical peplum movie with not much to distinguish it from dozens of others. There's one difference - for a change we have a strong acting performance from Cameron Mitchell, resplendent in a grey wig as Julius Caesar. Mitchell's character is actually explored in the movie and given motivation, while the scriptwriters go behind the scenes to show the powerful, occasionally cruel, but just, man that he was (being an Italian movie this is obviously on Rome's "side" and depicting the Gaul as bloodthirsty barbarians).
The costumes and sets are immaculate, giving the film a really authentic look which is one of the strong points, and there's plenty of action to keep the drama moving along nicely. Bloody battles are done in style on wide grassy plains and with good choreography and lots of bloodshed and death. This is a surprisingly grisly film for the time in which it was made, with some strong moments of torture via red-hot pincers and scenes like when a soldier is axed in the head with blood pouring down his face which act as a forerunner to the atrocity movies they were making in the early '80s. Arrows drive into heads and through necks and bodies are impaled and stabbed on swords, so this definitely isn't a movie for children. Whoever said that BRAVEHEART paved the way for historical war violence was obviously mistaken!
The supporting cast is a strong one and the film gives Mitchell a worthy opponent in the form of Rik Battaglia, an Italian actor who would enjoy relative success later on in his career. Battaglia shows us the human side of Vercingetorix which makes him a likable screen villain. Assorted Italian beauties flesh out the rest of the cast along with good supporting turns from Ivo Payer as the torture victim and various double-crossers and traitorous allies.
I found this to be a pretty involving movie in that we learned to care for the characters instead of simply not giving a damn as in so many films. I would even go so far as to say that some moments - like a pan over a field littered with the mutilated bodies of the dead - are pretty humbling as the film-makers intended while the action is both stirring and exciting. Sure, the low budget is evident in the occasional use of stock footage but nonetheless, CAESAR THE CONQUEROR is an enjoyable, old-fashioned yarn which could stand up with the best of them.
