By the Gods!

The 'Apocalyptic' ending in THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

One of the (many) things which disappointed me about this film is the fact that the truly amazing sets were so underused in the film. We see a lot of the sets during big crowd scenes such as this one but I always thought they would have been more stunning if the main characters could be seen just walking about them during other parts of the story, not just the climax. Oh well...

I agree this film is basically a disappointment, albeit a very lavish one.

Title is also misleading, as the Roman Empire in the West lasted for several centuries after the death of Marcus Aurelius in 180 AD. The city was sacked by the Visigoths in 410 AD.
