Twelve-year-old Romulus Augustus (Thomas Sangster), was only appointed Emperor of Rome for one day before everything was taken away from him. With great determination the exiled ruler sets out to reclaim his kingdom, enlisting the aid of faithful mentors (Ben Kingsley, Colin Firth and Aishwarya Rai), a legendary sword called Excaliburnus and the strength of The Last Legion.
Why Is The Last Legion Rated PG-13?
The Last Legion is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence, some language and brief sexuality.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Last Legion...
Violence is the biggest (and nearly only) concern in this story about a young Roman emperor who sets out to find a band of soldiers who will uphold his rule. Lots of combat and conflict ensues, with swords, spears and stones being used to overcome enemies. Many deaths and injuries are depicted, however the portrayal of blood is minimal—especially considering the massive amount of mayhem. Some bothersome moments include a man who cuts off another man’s finger as a punishment (we do not see the actual act), images of dead corpses being hauled away, as well as bloodied faces and blades of weapons. Sexual content is limited to a brief moment when an unmarried man and woman get into bed together. No profanities were noted.
