Lost Legion might have admirable costumes and props but otherwise this is community theater-level of quality when it comes to the performances with more than a few were over-the-top and utterly laughable, though not helped by terrible dialogue. The DVD released by Lionsgate is yet more filler for the studio destined for the $5 dump bin at your local Wal-Mart but even that price is far too much…

PLOT SUMMARY

After years of decline, the Roman Empire is desperate to recapture its past. Amidst war and political confusion, Urbina Prima (MICHELLE LUKES) schemes to make her son, Cassius (OLDRICH ANTON VOJTA), the next emperor. The only thing standing in their way is Maximus (BRIAN CASPE), a once-great Roman commander with his own dreams of nobility. Can Rome reclaim its glory, or will the chaos lead to civil war?

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

Outside of a Digital Copy redemption code, no other features were included.

VIDEO – 3.75/5 | AUDIO – 3.5/5

Lost Legion attacks on DVD presented with an anamorphic 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and outside of looking like a made-for-TV movie, it’s not a terrible looking film with good dark levels and well balanced colors.

The Dolby Digital 5.1 track is fine with strong dialogue levels while the front and rear channels are relegated for ambient noises and the generic action-adventure score.

OVERALL – 1.0/5

Overall, Lost Legion might have admirable costumes and props but otherwise this is community theater-level of quality when it comes to the performances with more than a few were over-the-top and utterly laughable, though not helped by terrible dialogue. The DVD released by Lionsgate is yet more filler for the studio destined for the $5 dump bin at your local Wal-Mart but even that price is far too much…

  1. The movie wasn’t that bad. It is by no means top draw but as a Roman drama reminded me of I,Claudius. If many of today’s production spoilt viewers were to look at that they would consider The Lost Legion a high budget production.
    The movie has its flaws but also it has merit. At the end I looked to see if there was a sequel and i’m fussy when it comes to movies. I would recommend you watch it and judge for yourselves.
