Attila

Customer Reviews

The acting was great,as well as the costumes and the sets.
Debra Young
If there is one great advantage of the film, it is that it might inspire people to learn more about Attila and the Roman Empire during the period of its decline.

Here is a wonderful movie that mixes fact & fiction, sometimes telling factual events in a fictional way. All in all, however, it is a film that is well done & well worth viewing.
It is a fact that Attila did set foot inside the walls of Rome as a guest. However, it is false that he was the guest of Flavius Aetius while both were grown men. As a matter of fact, as a boy the two were "exchanged." Atilla lived in Rome while Flavius Aetius lived amongst the Huns. It was then that Attila swore that he would return one day not as a guest of Rome, but as its conquerer.
It is dubious that Attila obtained a liking for the hot baths of Rome during his youthful sojourn in the city. By all accounts of the period historians, the king of the Huns lived a very simple and Spartan existence, despite the excesses of his officers and his extravagant wealth. Gerard Butler also portrays a bit more of a debonair and "GQ looking" Atilla than I ever imagined the historical Atilla. However, that is forgivable. After all, this is Hollywood, right?
It is a fact that Valentian III personally murdered Aetius (bad idea) in 454 A.D. As someone supposedly told Valentian, "With your left hand, you have cut off your right hand." Also, the Romans did sign a treaty with the Visigothic king Theoderic I to aid in fighting the Huns. This was a reversal from earlier times when the Romans and Huns ganged up on the Visigoths. This is recounted accurately in the film.
All in all, this was an extremely good effort. It is very hard to display the dwindling years of an empire's hegemony in 3 short hours. This movie does an excellent job with the material at its disposal. The battle scenes are fairly well done, and they even pull off a passable battle of the Catalaunian Plains in the climactic sequence.

USA network blurbs state Men Followed. Women Worshipped. Rome Trembled.
And Audiences Giggle.
Cross Lord of the Rings with a bodice-ripper romance and mix in a little Gladiator and you have this two-part movie starring hunky Scot Gerard Butler as the marauding king of the Scythian hordes known as the Huns. The Romans called him the Scourge of God, and the real Attila brought Europe to its knees, but Attila in this movie is played by Butler as a tormented man with a sexy overbite and some family dysfunction. There is intrigue and bloodwash aplenty. The Huns are depicted as a rather Celtic, not Asian, tribe, complete with wood sprite who delivers prophecies to Attila, King-Arthur style. These involve a gaining ownership of a sword, with which one rules the world. Okaaaay....
Decent, albeit comic, performances are given as Romans by Tim Curry and some other guy as emperor of Rome about this time frame (the year 452 or thereabouts). Powers Boothe is Roman General Flavius Aetius who alternately conspires with and against Attila. The emperor's sister, a hot-looking Roman princess in a corsety-type thing I am pretty sure did not exist in that timeframe, seduces Attila in a bath, even though he's supposed to be in love with the red haired woman his tribe captured from a village. Men never change. Alice Krige as the emperor's mother is much prettier here than she was as the Borg Queen in Star Trek but she's bitchy and conspires against everybody, even her own children.
Gerard Butler makes a sexy Attila, and he can invade my village anytime. However, he's Scottish, and seems to be affecting some kind of weird accent here, where syllables fall out of his mouth in an oddly non-commanding warrior way.

Format: DVD
Attila attempts to portray the struggle of two men and two cultures between 433 and 453 AD. On the one hand, Attila the Hun is depicted in a fairly favorable light as a Barbarian warlord bent upon raising his steppe-dwelling people up from poverty to world domination. General Flavius Aetius, wonderfully acted by Powers Boothe, is depicted as the "last of the Romans," intent upon frustrating Attila's conquests and thereby preserving the tottering Roman Empire. Thus, the stage is set for a great mano-i-mano battle between the haves and the have-nots of the world. As history, the film gets the essential elements correct: Attilla and Aetius did exist and do most of the things depicted. The film is also rich in the tensions evident in a decaying Roman empire and a seething mass of Barbarians awaiting the final death throes. However, the film also abbreviates and alters a great many of the particulars of this classic late-empire struggle.
Aetitius was in fact something of a barbarian himself. Although the film depicts him as imprisoned by the conniving regent, the mother of the Emporer Valentinian III, Aetitius in fact spent three years (430-433 AD) hiding out with the Huns after an unsuccessful power struggle. There were virtually no "Roman" troops left for Aetitius to command and he relied heavily on Huns and Goths to fill out his ranks. The film's depiction of Roman troops in 1st Century AD uniforms and equipment is erroneous. Attila's troops are also depicted as ethnic Europeans when in fact, they were of central Asian origin. The more bizarre but factual Hun traits, such as ritual mutilation of their faces to make themselves seem more fearsome, are not shown. The final Battle of Chalons is not represented accurately at all, but it still interesting.
