Synopsis:
AD 117. The Roman Empire stretches from Egypt to Spain, and East as far as the Black Sea. But in northern Britain, the relentless onslaught of conquest has ground to a halt in face of the guerrilla tactics of an elusive enemy: the savage and terrifying Picts. Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender), sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, marches north with General Virilus' (Dominic West) legendary Ninth Legion, under orders to wipe the Picts from the face of the earth and destroy their leader Gorlacon (Ulrich Thomsen).
But when the legion is ambushed on unfamiliar ground, and Virilus taken captive, Quintus faces a desperate struggle to keep his small platoon alive behind enemy lines. Enduring the harsh terrain and evading their remorseless pursuers led by revenge-hungry Warrior Etain (Olga Kurylenko), the band of soldiers race to rescue their General and to reach the safety of the Roman frontier.

Funny PC historical piffle - Centurion review by PV

Spoiler Alert
22/08/2010

This is watchable, but certainly not in the same league as the excellent Gladiator.

Why? Well, for a start, the film seems to have been written and casted by a committe or perhaps an HR diversity manager:

Black actor Noel from Dr Who, tick; Asian (Muslim) Roman soldier, tick; women in macho aggressive feminist roles, tick. This is utterly predictable and tiresome in so many British films, and is especially true for films made with the backing of the PC Film Council and lottery funding.

Too much like a Dr Who episode really. And the way the women all have make-up and nicely done hair as they rush into battle with their swords and spears killing dozens of Romans twice their size is (unintentionally) hilarious! Girlpower? Comedy, more like!

History it ain't! But at least it is mercifully short! Worth watching, but no better than a time-passer.
