"FIERCE, VISCERAL & TERRIFICALLY ENTERTAINING!"
-Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview
In 2nd Century Britain, celebrated Roman soldier Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) embarks on a dangerous quest to restore the tarnished reputation of his father and find the golden emblem that disappeared with him and thousands of troops twenty years earlier. But the highlands of Caledonia are a savage wilderness, and Marcus must rely on his embittered slave, Esca (Jamie Bell), to navigate the perilous region. Their journey pushes them beyond the boundaries of loyalty and betrayal, friendship and hatred, deceit and heroism. Donald Sutherland co-stars in this gripping, gritty, action-packed adventure from acclaimed director Kevin Macdonald.
Gladiator this is not, but it is an entertaining movie with good battle scenes and an engaging plot. Probably more 3.5 stars than 3.
