Go the Picts. Death to the invader. Not great but not bad either.
This is a technically superb movie , with a fairly lightweight story line. The amount of blood and gore was a bit excessive for my liking.
Absolute c**p. Totally historically inacurate in depicting the Roman's methods of fighting. A waste of some good actors.
This movie was OK. An interesting take on what might have happened to the Ninth Roman Legion. The first 30 minutes are very violent but the rest of the movie is less so and worth getting to. Good movie to waste time with
This movie found most interesting and photography and scenery superb even though some scenes brutal and blood curdling, the story line gave some aspect to days of conquest of foreign lands and the intrigues of past still found compelling viewing and recommended
Very heavy on the blood and decapitations. okay but not great
An interesting tale about the legend surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the Ninth Legion in Roman Briton. In the major battle scene the discipline and formation of the Roman Legion prove no match for the guerrilla warfare techniques employed by the native Picts. I knew nothing about the legend of the Ninth Legion prior to watching the film and the film made me curious enough to google it afterwards. Good performances by Michael Fassbender and Dominic West
Very good movie,great scenery and story.Recommended for viewers of this genre.
We did enjoy this movie a good watch.
Fassbender be still my beating heart. I only watched this because of him. The movie is quite average although the scenery is stunning. Too much fight scenes for me. If Fassy and Russell Crowe did a historical movie together I'd self-combust. Four stars for Fassbender.
I did advise that this copy was unable to start. I hope that I can be sent another copy without penalty. Regards R Whelan
conan is a good movie if you like movie about worriors and other things like d&d
Usually my husband's domain, but I enjoyed watching this one
as far as these types of movies go, this is one of the better ones.
wonderful scenery and worth the time.
Very good, not quite sure of historiacl accuracy, but a good watch
Just leave this to the teenage boys used to blood and guts in games (that is better than this stuff).
Frankly Neil Marshal should stick to the Horror genre requesting little money to be effective. Centurion is a low budget and it shows. It's no Gladiator, believe me. The storyline is weak, the violence is gratuitous, the acting is sometimes awkward. You won't give a fxxx of the characters so in the end of the day, this movie is about Romans fighting Picts and the rest is too superficial. We are far from Kurosawa's masterpieces.
A legion of Roman soldiers wage war against the Picts. A movie which explores the legend of a lost legion of soldiers. While obviously done on a tight budget the film nevertheless comes quite well. As usual with this type of thing the women look like they stepped out of a French fashion show. 3.5 stars
Boring, did not like this movie. Story was weak.
not what we expected, was a little disappointed with this movie
Bloodthirsty mish mash of history
Lovingly dwells on blood, gore and killing. But I'd say it was close to the truth.
watched this at a 'girls night in' because it stars the delightful Michael Fassbender (all us girls have SUCH a crush on him!) It was interesting and well done, sufficiently violent and gory. If you like Gladiator you'll probably like this. A very interesting period of history.
Better than I thought it would be. It is very graphic, blood and gore but we enjoyed it
I enjoyed this movie. Yes there were lots of heads and limbs removed during the Battle and Fights scenes, which was the normal during those days, I believeld (from the History Channel). There was plenty of the action and I thought that the story line was Ok and reasonablely realistic. I would recommended this movie if you don't mind the violence.
If you like lots of blood and guts then you will love this, otherwise not much storyline.
An entertaining movie, lots of violence,and action, not for the kids
Good film - storyline borrowed much from Butch Cassidy ('How does she do that?' and the jump from the cliff), the Hunting Party and Braveheart plus King AryhurA
the best thing about this movie is that it didnt have the non existant tribe of the woads, as King Arthur did. Other than this it is just terrible.
dont hire it
Enjoyed this movie but found some parts were too rushed (could have had more history or explanation about some things) and other parts dragged on for too long (like the voilent battle scenes!). If you like these types of movies then definitely recommended but not one to rave about.
didn't know any of the actors, and was rather surprised, a really good film, long but a good decent watch.
I didn't really know the history of the story, but I do know.
