Okay. Good action scenes.
Unbelievably long, waiting for something to happen. Boring period piece
sad that i wasted both time and money. you know a movie is bad when you desperately hope both main characters die brutually.
one of the best movies of this year, if not the best. This movie is about honor, loyalty and sacrifice.Channing Tatum's best role yet.
My husband liked it but I was so absolutely bored with this movie. I usually like period movies
It was a good movie.
Hubby and i really enjoyed this movie. We don't pick movies apart, we watch them to enjoy them...great plot, great actors...great movie!
I thought this movie was a great movie, so I gave it three stars.
First half hour was good then it was boring beyond belief.
Typical hisorian film. If you love history in the era and fighting.
I enjoyed the storyline and the action. Good job acting job for newcomer, Tatum Channing.
Well done - terrific acting - loved the story
It was okay. I am not sure why but I was expecting more. It was okay, but not great
It was a pretty entertaining movie. I was surprised by Channing Tatum's acting being up to par. Though, if you look deeper into the movie certain historial prejudices and sterotypes are heavily played into...
I enjoyed the movie.There was alot of action.
This was better than I thought, I was afraid it would be too slow but it was actually very nice.
Great acting ,good historical equip.plot was far fetched near end Scots dancing on the beach ????? . Should have given Sutherland BIGGER role he still has it.
I was so excited to see this movie but was disappointed with it. Accents were an issue and made it hard to get into because it was un-believable. But it wasnt horrible. It was worth it just to see Channing Tatum for 2 hours ; )
This movie was very well acted and had a great stry line that was a nice change from the usual "gladiator fights for girl". A must see.
Much better then I expected!!!
I don't understand how you can claim that there were "colonial stereotypes." You obviously don't know history, the movie is just portaying how the Romans viewe the "barbarians."
Great movie. This movie was not made to be a crazy action film like 300 or Gladiator. It was more like an adventure.
I loved it and my husband loved it as well.
Fabulous movie. I had my heart right into this movie. Gets you into it and is exciting. Story line was very good. You gotta see it. LOVE this show and loved the ending !!
Excellent! Very good acting and interesting story line.
very interesting view of the native english much like the native northamaericans 1000 years later. The view of Rome civilization in britan was only good for the romans that came there is clear that the natives were exploted and that the natives were less structured but as brutal as the so called civilized romans
Bad film! Do not go and see this one if you are looking for an high energy action film. Also there was some serious colonial stereotypes flying around in this movie. I cannot believe the use of the savage image in the attempt to justify colonialism and colonial behaviours! I was really offended by this movie and would recommend not going to see it. This movie pretends to show two sides to the story, but is ultimately pushing the colonial images of good vs. evil, civilized vs. savage, competent vs. incompetent, and so on!
A very good action movie
Very Good Action Movie
Wow ... and not in a good way!!!! This film plays into every stereotype there is surrounding Indigenous Peoples. For example in it we saw the noble savage (Jamie Bell) and the wild savages (Northern Britian. This film creates the image that colonization was a positive act. Also there was very little to the story line in general.
A great movie.
Enjoyed the action scenes and it was a very good historic drama.
If I was ten years old, I would have loved this movie. Not enough action and fighting.
Hubby loved and said to give it 4 stars, me not so much
It was an interesting movie that is really about the development of trust and the changing of one's attitudes between the 2 main characters. There was a bit of a lack of development amongst the characters as it came off of the screen but if you enjoy your "swords & sandals" it is a decent film.
Terrific story, well told, I enjoyed the performances, particularly Jamie Bell. Great historical drama, the two stars play well off each other. Worth seeing on the big screen.
very anti climatic the entire movie was slow horrible compared to king arthur or gladiator.
This is no 300 or even cloe to Gladiator but its not bad. A renter for sure or a tuesday movie for the free popcorn and drink.
Ranks up there with 300 and Gladiator
