Blu-ray Review: Centurion

Brutal as Hell
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: More grounded than Zack Snyder’s 300 yet less heady than the HBO show Rome, Neil Marshall’s Centurion is the sword and sandals historical action film for those who enjoy spending Saturday afternoons watching TNT New Classics and pounding back some Keystone Ice. The film, set during the first century, details the Roman Ninth Legion’s suicide mission to march into Caledonia and wipe out the Picts, a guerilla army of natives unwilling to bow before Roman rule.

Centurion Blu-ray Review

5 November 2010
  • Summary: Centurion belongs to that category of films where the characters, without a trace of irony, shout stuff like "Hold the lines!" and "We live united, or die divided!" It's the sort of movie where the men are all grizzled, battle-hardened badasses and the women—without exception—are drop dead gorgeous. Warriors trudge single-file up snow-covered, Lord of the Rings -style mountainsides, then descend into the valley to fight with courage and die with honor.

Centurion Review

DoBlu
3 November 2010
  • Excerpt: There is a ton of blood spilled in Centuiron , some of it a physical effect, other splotches a by-product of lower-end CG work. Why is it important to mention the bloodshed before any plot details? It’s about all this movie really offers, and is certainly the highlight it wants to showcase. The variety of ways people are dispatched are quite inventive.

  • Summary: In spite of the impressive attention to detail in creating England in AD 117, the lack of compelling characters makes "Centurion" ultimately forgettable.

  • Excerpt: Rule No. 1: Never piss off the fortress wall at night when the enemy is armed with spears and tends to strike under cover of darkness. As an opening salvo, Neil Marshall’s survivalist war odyssey Centurion shows the gruesome result of breaking this rule, then proceeds on a relentless barrage of stabbings, disembowelments, and heads giving way with the suppleness of rotten cantaloupes.

SXSW Film Review: Centurion

Brutal as Hell
19 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The general of the 9th legion of Roman soldiers, Virilus (West), has been given orders to take his men into Pict territory in what is now Scotland, and finally bring an end to the long-running war between Rome and the Picts. Rome has had its sights set on Britain, but the Picts, a native people who use the terrain and bows and arrows to their advantage, have long stood in their way. The Picts don’t fuck around.
