Not perfect, but pretty good

I gave this movie a 10, it probably deserved a 5 or 6, but with the overwhelmingly poor ratings given to it I thought it could use a boost. This was by no means a perfect movie, but I still enjoyed it. If more care had been given to the script to tighten it up and improve the dialog it could have been much better. There was too much information just tossed in and the occasional plot hole. I didn't care much for the attempts at humor, either. But, though jumpy, the battle scenes were well done and the overall pace and tone of the film were good. The theme of ancient Romans and Chinese fighting together in South Asia was too good to pass up, so I decided to give it a chance despite the poor reviews. Even though it lagged in spots it kept my attention and I'm glad I spent the time to watch it. And I'm very picky about what I watch.
