* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: For all the film's posturing about Colin being selfish for being obsessed with revenge; it glosses over the fact that Moya betrayed his trust by drugging him, offering herself as a bribe to Marcus, and then strong-arming him into promising not to seek revenge despite the fact that she caused all of it through her own selfishness.

* TheGloryThatWasRome: Marcus was a Roman Legate and is absolutely obsessed with recreating the Pax Romana in his own image. He still lovingly wields his old Legionary gladius. We also get to see Rome's last moments before Alaric's Gothic army sacks it. Colin is among the Germanics, presumably as a Celtic mercenary.

Set in the distant future, Colin meets up with a resistance group, partially held by the prostitute Dahlia, that is being oppressed by Marcus and plagued by a disease only Marcus has the vaccine to. Throughout the story we get flashbacks of Colin's failed attempts to kill Marcus. Marcus seems to be perpetually attempting to rebuild the glory of his beloved [[RomanEmpire Rome]] whereas Colin, blinded by his hatred, joins whatever cause is opposed to him in the hope of taking his head.
