Review

A brutal ancient actioner...

The film pans out exactly as the trailer, offers nothing new, done to death story, but somehow, this brutal portrayal of the Romans battling for survival against the tribes of forestry is exciting enough for the entire duration. Save for a letdown in the formula romantic subplot, the film serves the audience well, with an efficient actioner that offers nothing special, nothing new and nothing memorable.

Michael Fassbender leads a cast of non-Hollywood heavy weights. Fassbender makes a charismatic hero to follow, while offering nothing ingenious in terms of acting; he is suitably capable as a leader of the magnificent seven. The highlight and eye candy comes in the form of former Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko, who displays some meaty acting chops by being outright nasty. Perhaps aided by being a mute, Olga is great and if she shed a few more of those cloths on her, it will be even greater. Shame it didn’t happen, but she is certainly one very hot heroine.

All in all, Centurion delivers action, action, blood, blood, violence, violence and absolute brutality. For that it entertained me from start to finish. Yes, I am a casual ancient historian, but if you discount the factor of any historical accuracy and embrace the film as a fiction or even a fantasy. Centurion can be a joy ride and not unlike the Zth time of going on the same rollercoaster, Centurion offers the thrill and entertainment, if not for long after the duration. A decent film for what it is worth...(Neo 2010)

I rate it 6.5/10
