Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans

Dir. Dominic Brigstocke. UK, 2019. 1h 32m. Starring Emilia Jones, Sebastian Croft, Nick Frost, Kim Cattrall, Derek Jacobi, Craig Roberts.

Friends, Romans, Celts, lend us your ears! A quick-witted Roman teenager angers the powerful Emperor Nero and is sent to the work in the cold, wet, and uncivilised Britain as punishment. The hit CBBC series Horrible Histories is given the big-screen treatment featuring amusing cameos from some well known comic actors, including Nick Frost, Sanjeev Bhaskar, and Alexander Armstrong.

'Derek Jacobi gamely reprises his celebrated role as Claudius in an entertaining big-screen outing for the CBBC television series' Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

'The songs on the whole are terrific, The Battle of Watling Street foremost amongst them – a rousing rap battle that perfectly illustrates the franchise's gift for blending education with anarchy.' Emma Simmonds, Radio Times
