Constantine and the Cross
One of the many Italian sword-and-sandal adventure stories roughly depicting historical events -- sometimes too graphically -- this drama by director Lionello de Felice has its merits. The action moves along at a good clip, as Constantine's (Cornel Wilde) rise to power is depicted, amidst battling armies and political intrigue. All the well-publicized, old Roman entertainments such as feeding Christians to the lions are shown in more detail than might be necessary, leading to one of the main points of featuring Constantine at all -- he was the emperor who gave Christians the freedom to worship as they pleased. His cronies and his enemies, his loves and his successes all have their moment in the sun. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    classic old movie I watched as a kid

    if you like classics, you will like this. The charm of some old movies never fade. It's like putting on a comfortable pair of slippers. Sure the costumes and sets are inexpensive, but who cares. It only adds to the enjoyment. History wasn't butchered too much and the actors are great.
