Storyline

A Roman Consul, on his way to fight a border war, stations a garrison of soldiers in a provincial town. The townspeople aren't happy with this situation but decide it's in their best interests to cooperate. However, the Tribune left in charge of the garrison proves to be cruel and demanding. He takes over a house for his own use and forces his attentions on Fabiola, the owner's daughter. She reluctantly submits in order to protect the life of her lover, Brenno, who's already been publicly whipped and who's been hauled off to the local arena to provide sport for Roman gladiators. Soon, Brenno and Fabiola's brother are organizing a resistance which will put an end to the Tribune's reign of tyranny. Written by dinky-4

Tons of Plot, Tons of Action, Just a Tad Slow.
10 April 2004 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

A Roman Tribune, left behind to mind a subdued city, decides to go against orders and ends up becoming a tyrant in order to spread the glory of Rome. The tribune falls in love with a girl who is in turn in love with the leader of the rebellion.

This movie is interesting in that the villain isn't really bad, he's just misguided. From his point of view, one that is truly understandable, he's doing the right thing. This gives the movie a nice shade of gray missing from most other epics of this sort.

My one question is why is this called Alone Against Rome when no one is really alone against Rome and there isn't even a central character?
