Not too engaging in the story dept, but graphic, real fight scenes
18 June 2012
Excerpt: Let me start by saying the medieval and early america type genre really peaks my interest. Vikings, Nords...all awesome. This story however, was not one that really had my heart in seeing the main protagonist kick ass. It never really made me feel into the story.
Summary: Centurion is a pretty decent action-packed historical thriller. The story may be merely diverting rather than compelling, but there's plenty to entertain throughout. The fight scenes are brutal and expertly handled, and I like the comparison made between Pict tactics and modern guerrilla warfare.
Summary: Godawful. The number one rule is: don't make a time piece if you don't have the budget for one. The worst is to make a film that looks cheap. Everything in this movie looks cheap: the fortress, the effects, everything. Combine that with a bad script, and you have a crap movie.
Excerpt: My title speaks for itself, this is a good guy movie. There is a lot of killing and action but the story line lacks but it makes up for it with suspence. It is a survival movie about like the warriors and if you haven't seen the warriors I suggest you do so.

Summary: This is in direct response to davidfurlotte's fairly asinine 'review'..... First of all, if you're going to claim to be an authority on these things, do some research. In practically every interview, Marshall made it very clear that the film was based on a myth, a legend, nothing more.
Summary: This movie was entertaining and exceeded expectations. I love history and am a history degree holder with an emphasis and ancient Indo European culture. I'm not here to tear into this movie as a I felt it was just fine, but rather try to deflect some "junk" history that some people seem to throw...
Summary: This movie was relatively unheard of when a friend of mine gave a copy of it. I was skeptical since it was not from Hollywood, no big stars etc. However, it proved I was wrong. This is not a masterpiece indeed; but it was able to get me a thrilling ride from beginning to end.
Summary: This film inserts itself into a couple of historical gaps: first, what happened to the soldiers of the Ninth Legion; second, what were the Picts really like? "Centurion" comes up with much more sinister answers than historians venture, but, hey, it's a movie, right?
