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.

I can't believe I watched the whoooole thing. Unlike a movie such as, "The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes," which was so bad it was good, "Druids," is just plain bad! As far as historial accuracy, I can't comment, as I rented the movie to possibly learn a little about that period of history. Well, I learned a little all right. Very little!
The people who liked this movie obviuosly knew something of this historical period and were able to fill in the gaps of this, all over the map, choppy and confusing film. I was only able to tell that time had past by the growth of Lambert's hair. Like Christopher Walkin(sp?), neither has ever had a good hair day!
I am not real familiar with Lambert's career, but he must have a following. He is probably a very nice man, but I find his voice to be like, fingernails on a chalkboard and his acting/characters blah! He has made many movies and for some reason I feel like I should like him, but this movie has convinced me I don't need to feel that way anymore. I have enjoyed the, "Highlander," films a lot, but because of Adrian Paul, not so much C.L., but, a Highlander movie wouldn't be right without Lambert, as well as A. Paul.
Unless you can watch this movie as a punishment for not taking out the garbage or forgetting your anniversary, don't bother!
The main characters, weren't, the rest, who knows! The movie was edited to death by a very confused person.
I am glad to have read the rest of the reviews here to see I was not just, not seeing things!

This movie is a case study of how it is possible to waste an opportunity, never mind great actors, enough money and a truly interesting story: Vercingetorix (played by Christopher Lambert), became leader of the Gaulls half a century before Jesus Christ was born. The movie tells his story, how he united the rivaling clans in todays France and his heroic fight against the almighty Roman general Julius Caesar. At that time Caesar (played by Klaus-Maria Brandauer, a normally outstanding actor) had not returned to Rome yet. Even though Vercingetorix has a huge army, the rivalry under the clan leaders leads to a decisive defeat at the town of Alesia and Vercingetorix will be captured, brought in triumph to Rome and be executed. It is a part of history, we unfortunately do not see in the movie, which ends with a famous scene, when Vercingetorix surrenders to Caesar. "Druids" were the "holy & wise men & women" of the Gauls. Max von Sydow plays an old Druid, who Merlin-like teaches young Vercingetorix all his wisdom to prepare the young boy for his destiny. Throughout the movie the druid is allowed to return occasionally to speak some wise words.
As great as the story is and as great it could be an epic movie in Bertolucci or Kurosawa style, as flat and unfinished the movie remains. The characters are not well introduced. The actors play on 20% of their capability. Continuity (or flow of the story) is absent. This mess is crowned by a terrible editing, which looks like a young MTV-editor was allowed to do his first film-job. Jumps between night and day or dark and bright are combined with many unneccessary frames, which were added, when other scenes were cut short. Don't buy this movie. Don't go to the cinema! If you want, rent it and study the mistakes...

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.
