    It took a few views, but this one grew on me.

    Here, you have all the elements of a solid historical fiction thriller. First of all, you have the ancient Romans, represented here by the very talented Michael Fassbender. Additionally, there's the setting among the wild tribes of ancient Scotland, a very cool place in history that I was happy to see on film. I was on the fence after the first watch, but another viewing made me a fan.

    Not much else to say. If you like sword fights then this is for you. It's a well made movie and has Fassbender before Prometheus put him on everyone's radar. Olga Kurylenko compliments the cast and is oddly good at the role. Fits perfectly too! It's a cool movie to watch with friends if action is what you're after, but don't expect anything amazing or worth coming back to.

    Solid action adventure movie.

    "Centurion" was a surprisingly good movie. I had low expectations since it seemed to want to be a "King Arthur/Gladiator" clone, however it did well on it's own merit. The action sequences are satisfyingly brutal and well choreographed, and the dialogue is well executed and genuinely humorous at times. Enjoyable watch!

    Formulaic, but enjoyable

    I enjoyed this adventure, even if it was a little predictable. The usual bad barbarians versus good Romans, in some hostile country, facing almost insurmountable odds. But the story development lets you follow along without too much reliance on basic history knowledge of the viewer. Gives you an enjoyable 98 minutes.

    The plot is kinda corny and rather predictable, but the movie is very entertaining, has some great action with battle scenes that are sheer butchery. I may be partial as a soldier, but I like the bravado and commitment of the legionaries.

    Save the time... weak story and dialog.

    We could see it as a TV production. Intentionally, broken up with commercials to break the plot line and story continuity. It suffers from a weak story and dialog. Some fair cinematography but that does not salvage the movie overall.

    Michael Fassbender could spend 2 hours staring at paint dry and the world would be entertained! Centurion is a classic roman empire era film that is an awesome addition to the collection of any fan of that time period!

    Great Blue Ray extras that help complete the movie. The camera captured beautiful scenery with a great action packed story with a hint of love that will keep you entertained for the whole movie.

    This movie is very much like "The Eagle" and could almost be a prequel to it. If your into Roman era movies, I highly recommend this one. I actually bought one for myself and one as a gift.

    If you like Men running around in blizzard conditions, snow, and frozen lakes then this is a good choice. I didn't like this at all. Acting fair, sets good, story ok, envinorment conditions not likely.

    I would not say this movie had any kind of wow factor. It had a different story line than others of this time period. I found it okay, but would not recommend it due to its weak plot.

    Centurion is a decent action movie with plenty of action scenes and gore. The plot is okay and is spent mostly on beating up on the 9th Legion, but the ending isn't too bad.

    I always start out at Best Buy when looking for movies to buy. They have a great selection and I have always been able to find the "hard to find" ones there.

    A well above average story that brings the period to life. Perhaps a bit too dramatic in depicting some of the "driven" characters, but an overall satisfying effort.

    I am a huge fan of movies about the roman times! This one was good but also odd in parts and a bit predictable. If you don't mind that then you may enjoy it.

    Great story, fabulous scenery, exciting action. Historically correct Roman armor. I even recognized a leading actor form the series "The Affair".

    This movie was very entertaining and fast paced. It wasn't in the league of a '300' type movie but still worth watching.

    Good plot. Only problem is that they left some holes in the plot that could have been interesting. I would buy it again though.
