    awful. just awful. neil marshall is showing he really has absolutely no talent left after dog soldiers and the descent, i shouldn't really have to mention doomsday... but this movie is filled with cgi blood, pretentious acting and dialogue, horrible editing, and some really stupid PC stuff that was unnecessary and weren't realistic in the realm of the story.

    garbage. avoid.

    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. The guy running around in the snow in the beginning was clearly wearing something that looked like Dockers pants, I am pretty sure they did not have those around in the second century. In addition, it should be clear by now that a British accent ruins every movie. It sounds retarded, cannot explain why. Expand

    Il faudrait informer le réalisateur de The Descent que ce n'est pas en lorgnant sur la partie germanique de Gladiator qu'on en tire un péplum de qualité. Résultat : Centurion est loupé, car étant l'exact contraire du film de Ridley Scott. Les défauts que n'a pas ce dernier, Centurion les a! A savoir des dialogues sans classe (plats et même vulgaires), un casting peu imposant, un scénario déjà inexistant qui prouve son inutilité (faits historiques restés sur le papier), mise en scène bien trop plate... Bref, le film ne se contente que de son côté barbare, et là encore le bât blesse, le film étant excessivement gore (gerbes de sang qui jaillissent à foison comme dans un jeu vidéo) et "graphique" (certaines couleurs comme le blanc agressent les yeux). Bref, Centurion est un film qui n'arrive même pas à la cheville de Troie et qui se range du côté d'Outlander ou Pathfinder sans même les égaler. Affligeant! Expand

    Marshall, who helmed the underrated horror film, "The Descent," has a flair for the visual. Some of the mountainscapes, captured by use of a helicopter, are nothing short of spectacular.
  2. Marshall shows off the breathtaking landscape, but with interiors, he populates the ale houses and encampments with cliches - like dueling female warriors, one a mute and the other a white-haired vixen.

    Even if the movie had more shadings, though, Marshall's political point would undo his he-man action-flick format. If you're looking for a rallying cry to make the emotions sizzle, "Quagmire!" isn't it.
