If you like B-movies with so much blood and gore you have to take a shower when you get done, this movie is for you. The wounds are graphic, the action is intense, and there are not one, but two kick-ass female warriors. It is fairly well acted. Honors go to the ever reliable West and Kurylenko who has to emote without dialogue. Fassbender is appropriately rugged and the rest of the cast is serviceable. It is predictable and cliché-ridden, but entertaining. As far as accuracy, it’s not as farfetched as you might expect. It is possible that the 9th Legion was annihilated in northern Britain (although the historical consensus is against this theory). The Roman camp is authentic. The Roman weapons seem realistic. The settings do take you back to the wilds of Roman Britain. So far it is the best movie about the lost 9th Legion, at least until the next one comes out.
Cracker? This is a fun movie, but does not belong in august company.
