Very impressed, good transition from TV to film

As someone who watched the show growing up, I had high expectations for the film due to the nostalgia I have from the show and I have to say the expectations were met. The humour has not changed at all even if the cast did, (however there are some notable people to look out for if you grew up on BBC/CBBC shows. The transition from being a sketch show to film was well done and as always you learn a surprising about the Roman Empire, Boudica's uprising and Celtic Britain. If you enjoyed the show you'll enjoy the film but if your tastes are a bit more high brow I suggest you give this one a skip.

Bad comedy

Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans is a bad comedy and nowhere near as good as the TV show. Nick Frost is really good and Lee Mack is surprisingly funny but other than that it's bad. The majority of the jokes aren't funny, it looks cheap and the songs are awful. The original cast are definitely missed.

A Very British comedy with plenty of laughs and a bit of education for children and parents alike

I must admitI didn't have high hopes for this but the film didn't sway from the horrible histories TV and stage formula and it worked well. If you expecting high brow then you will be disappointed but if it's a top British cast with very British jokes you want then you are in luck. The film passes very quickly and, as the plot is aimed at kids, it isn't hard to follow. It obviously isn't high budget and very much feels like a horrible histories TV special but that doesn't detract from the fun. The film is a little bit of a slow burner but soon catches on. It's harmless family fun for a 90 minutes and I even learnt a few things while laughing, the whole key to horrible histories success.
