"This is a fun oldie. The Druids have invented a secret weapon that is supposed to be able to stop and perhaps even destroy Julius Caesar, who must win in order to put down the intrigues against him in Rome. He sends some fanatical warriors to find and destroy it, a desperate gambit that the cautious and analytical Caesar would never have depended on. Along the bloody way, they have a number of adventures (sacrifice, tragedy, cowards, even love). Amazingly, though the Druids invented no such thing, this is not simple superhero stuff, but filled with dark characters and some pretty good suspense. I am sure I saw this when I was a kid, which makes this extra fun. The Romans are kind of the good guys - honorable, brave, and devoted to Caesar - and the Gauls are the cruel savages, but there are many surprises in the characters and their machinations. There is a good finale of battle, and it ends just prior to the battle of Alesia.
REcommended as background fun."
