This is a list of the best Roman movies. These are films that take place in ancient Rome. If you believe we've missed one please feel free to add it to the list yourself. What's the best roman movie of all time? Ancient Rome was an amazing time in world history. It was a peak in western civilization. When the Roman Empire fell, the western world plummeted into a Dark Age that lasted for over 600 years. With its western yet unfamiliar customs, Roman society is a gold mine for filmmakers and storytellers in general. What's the best movie taking place in Rome? This list included both films that take place during the Roman Republic as well as the Roman Empire. These eras, of course, have given us such icons and gladiators and their arenas, the Roman Legion, Roman emperors, and of course the many Roman myths and legends. Suffice to say, you don't have to be a history nut to love the movies on this list.

List Criteria: Movies must take place during Roman times.
