Attila (2001)



During the waning days of the Roman Empire, the barbarian Huns are making their way toward Europe. A warrior named Attila (Gerard Butler) violently assumes Hun leadership and unites the warring clans under his banner. But this is not enough for him, Attila seeks to form an empire, and he sees Rome, bristling under the leadership of the incompetent Caesar Valentinian (Reg Rogers), ripe for the picking. In an attempt to quell a Hun invasion, ambitious Roman General Flavius Aetius (Powers Boothe) attempts to form an alliance with Attila against their mutual enemy, Visigoth King Theodoric (Liam Cunningham). But this plan backfires, and it soon becomes clear that a violent showdown between all three armies awaits.

‘Attila’ Is Slashing, Burning Fun

There's television, which calls for clearing your throat and speaking almost respectfully, and then there's TV. "Attila" is TV, a foolishly watchable, old-timey trash wallow with Roman baths, grunting battles and barbarian beauties. It's dumb Hun fun from the USA...

The Hun Also Rises: A Bloody, Boffo ‘Attila’

Oh Attila the Hun was a very fine Hun, a honey of a Hun was he. He pillaged and he plundered and he ravaged and he sacked but 'twas never never late for tea. Perhaps you remember that wee little rhyme from your youth. If so, you had a very strange upbringing, because...
