This is how B-movies should be made. It's a lean 90 minutes of action, adventure, and plenty of gory violence to spare. Take any 'men on a mission' story and transport it to Ancient Rome then you have an idea of what Centurion is about. Special mention should be made about Michael Fassbender's strong turn as the heroic lead and especially Olga Kurylenko as the villainous warrior opposed to Roman rule. It's tightly plotted and packed with exciting battles. Neil Marshall's direction gives the film a hard nihilistic edge to its advantage.

An okay film that I did like, but it was a bit too predictable and gory. Fassbender is good as always. I would have preferred more action over gore; gore is fine, but the battle sequences were hardly battle scenes at all, just blood. I loved the tone and setting of the film. Reminded me a lot of The Eagle which I also liked.

Keeps the violence of Braveheart, but doesn't have the dramatic story line to make it memorable. If you like action, this would be a recommended movie for a rainy day - just don't expect much more from the film.

The last survivors of a Roman garrison wiped out by the Pict warriors whose lands they have invaded attempt to reach friendly territory with a war party in hot pursuit. What we have here is a western which exchanges Romans and Picts for cowboys and indians. In fact, in Neil Marshall's tradition of ripping off classic films there is more than a nod towards Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid at one point but it has the world weary tone of tough guys sick of war and betrayal rather than the light heartedness of George Roy Hill's film. The film has a nice gritty quality about it with solid performances from Fassbender and West, although Marshall seems rather more interested in evisceration than characterisation meaning we don't ever really connect to the characters on any emotional level. …
