Britain, A.D. 117. Quintus Dias, the sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, marches north with General Virilus' legendary Ninth Legion, under orders to wipe the Picts from the face of the Earth and destroy their leader, Gorlacon.Written by
The Picts in the film are speaking Scots Gaelic. No written record of the Pictish language exists, but historians believe the modern language most similar to theirs is Welsh. However, director Neil Marshall thought viewers would be confused by a tribe in Scotland speaking Welsh. See more »
The spear the IX Legion carries is a period-correct piece of Roman military equipment, known as the hasta. While certainly less well-known than the pilum (plural pila) throwing spear, the hasta would be a better tactical choice for a legion marching into heavy forest where the space required to bring up and throw a pilum properly is not guaranteed. The hasta, being basically a "typical" spear, is a more versatile weapon. It should be noted that every legionary was issued both a pilum and a hasta, though the pilum featured more prominently in the Romans' preferred open-field strategies. See more »

CENTURION CATCH IT ( B ) Centurion is one of those movies which try to cover its flaws with heavy violent action sequences. The best part of the movie is its locations and cinematography, I was amazed by each and single frame of the movie, they have shot at some of the most beautiful unseen locations and it makes the movie a treat to watch. I hoped that if the screen play would have been as strong as the cinematography of the movie is. Michael Fassbender is the hottest star right now after Hunger, Fish Tank, Inglorious Bastards, Eden Lake, 3OO and now Centurion he surely has made a Big place in my heart as an actor. Though this movie didn't justice to his acting abilities but he surly did cover it with great sword action sequences. Olga Kurylenko did a fine job though she played a Mute Character still with her looks and fighting sequences she proved yet again why she is been most favorite for action roles. Imogen Poots looked really pretty though she comes in last 30 minutes still she leaves a good impact. All the other men were good and supported the movie really well. Overall a good attempt which could have been great!
