Storyline

In 140 AD, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland, young centurion Marcus Aquila (Tatum) arrives from Rome to solve the mystery and restore the reputation of his father, the commander of the Ninth. Accompanied only by his British slave Esca (Bell), Marcus sets out across Hadrian's Wall into the uncharted highlands of Caledonia - to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father's memory, and retrieve the lost legion's golden emblem, the Eagle of the Ninth.

Even Better 2nd Time Round01 March 2014

Saw this advertised on the TV and remembered I had it downloaded so watched it again. What a stonking good adventure. Who needs CGI and make believe characters when something as simple and raw as this is just as good. Liked it more 2nd time than I did the first.

Not an awesome movie, but still well worth watching. Great scenery and acting is good as well, story is worthwhile, but not oscar material.

Pleasantly surprised07 September 2011

After reading the reviews, I was not expecting very much of a movie. However, it was full of action and a good story. I'm a little biased when it comes to honoring one's heritage, and that was a great addition to the movie. I don't watch very many movies more than once. This one I would.

If I hadn't paid for it I'd have turned it off15 August 2011

I read a lot of Historical Roman novels and this left me cold, for a similar story that would have made a far superior film try reading "Wounds of Honour" by Anthony Riches.

And I feel generous...02 August 2011

This film is hard to categorize. It is not really epic, not action, not a good character-story, not dramatic... Don't get fooled, it is not a historical film, rather an average adaptation of a moderately good novel. The good part is the action scenes. The bad part are the briefly short action... more
