1.0 out of 5 stars "Braveheart" this is NOT June 16 2004
Format:VHS Tape
If you are a fan of Roman history, a fan of Caesar, a fan of barbarians, or interested in Celtic/Nordic/Gaelic history...then don't watch this movie, because it tarnishes all of the above. Anthesteria, the reviewer before me, mentions it's based off a book and says the book is much better - I will take their absolute word for it, because this movie has the feel of a story butchered by bad film making.
First, they treat the main character Vergingetorix very poorly. Christopher Lambert looks absolutely ridiculous, and reading in Anthesteria's review that he was supposed to be young at the beginning makes me laugh even more. His hairdo looks like they slapped a bad wig over his balding scalp...matter of fact, they probably did. They also develop his character poorly and the movie simply expects you to BELIEVE he is a great, brave man. Characters are continually saying, "You are a great warrior! As good as your father!" but you know what he does to prove this? He stabs a man...with a spear...from behind...on horseback...and the guy was sitting down...and unarmed...and uh...yeah...
And now I must give my biggest grief about this movie: they chose the absolute worst man to play Caesar. Not acting-wise, in that area the man was fine, but...the way he looked? No! During this campaign Caesar's camp was ambushed at night, and he went through out the legions fighting at the front line with his men to inspire them. The man in this movie doesn't do much with his sword except spin it around in one scene, and he doesn't look like the battle-hardened veteran Caesar was. This combined with Christopher Lambert as Vergingetorix with a comb-over does not make for good re-enactments.
The battles are actually decent I suppose, particularly those involving the siege of Alesia.

1.0 out of 5 stars That almost beats U-571 Aug. 1 2002
Format:DVD
This film almost beats the worst war/history movie I have ever come across: U-571.
Druids looks to me like a bad soap opera. The costumes looked as if the makers of this film have studied cartoons like "Asterix and Obelix" rather than history books.
Christophe Lambert has played in a lot of good movies but also bad ones and this is one of his worst.
Everything in this film just has the feel of being fake. The worst are the Teutons who are ALL shown red-haired. What a joke. Did they all fall into the same pot of red paint?
Brandauer and his cynicism kept me going in that movie. This is how Caesar should be portrayed: as a ruthless, cynical, and ice-cold careerist politician who walks over corpses to achieve his political aims. That portrayal of Caesar in the film is good and historically accurate.
The rest should be kept in silence.
If the French ever see how the Gauls are portrayed in this film, the director will never be allowed to enter France again.

watch this horrid movie ever again. I like Christopher Lambert. I really do. Even in his awful, cheesy movies. But not this one. At one point during the movie, I turned to my husband and said, "Remember when Clint Eastwood went and made Spagetti Westerns? Well, this is a Spaghetti Braveheart." I actually sat through the whole thing. I truly don't know why, and would like to demand two plus hours of my life back, thank you very much. It wasn't exciting, it wasn't epic (well, except in the epic amount of time they took to draw out the most boring battle scene I've seen in my entire life). The best part of this movie (besides when it was finished) was when the townswomen got on the town walls and started baring their breasts to distract the Roman soldiers. Gratuitous breast shots always enlighten a dull movie. Even so, this film gets a rating of "what... did they think they were doing?" from me.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Wretched Non-Epic June 22 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
"Druids" is a very important film for those filmmaking types looking to break into the historical epic genre. In fact, it should be studied in any film school - a second-by-second presentation on how NOT to make a film. Everything about this movie is bad - and this comes from somebody who delights in bad movies. Steer clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars extremely historically accurate, worth a glance March 10 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
What most of the the reviews above have failed to mention about this movie with all its evident faults is the evident attention of detail on behalf of the producers. With those with some historical background one will notice the many reference both visual a literary to the actual nature of Gallic society art and war. It seems most of the budget has gone to reproducing a number of well known, and some less known Celtic artifacts. From the helmets, skulls, sword hilts, shields, musical instruments, cloaks, cloak pins, shoes, combs, drinking vessels, habitations all are historically as accurate as possible with what we know of the period of the Vercingetorix resistance. The story is also faithfully followed while speculating that perhaps it is the actual way the Celts viewed war: as a pleasure and not a rational cruel science that led to their defeat. Their noble and boystrous natures are simply incapable of restraining their warlike natures.
Perhaps this movie has no ambition of being a Braveheart or a Gladiator, but of a being of a different order, i.e., educational. It is the only movie out there that accurately synthesizes and reproduces on living screen the customs and esthetics of the continental Celts. Because of its unique nature and educational value I give it the highest rating. Keep this in mind when you watch it and it will be an enjoyable historical ride.
