Centurion film



 

I watched the film: Centurion yesterday. A friend raved about it. It wasn't as good as he said, but still good and enthralling. It's about what could have happened to the Ninth Roman Legion which disappeared in Pictland (in Scotland.) It's told from the point of view of a centurion who is the only soldier to survive. The Picts are pretty scary;  the scenery magnificent. There is a sense of menace maintained throughout, helped by some eery music.

 

The Pict huntress.

 

The legion preparing for attack.



A woman warrior.

Of course, to my annoyance, the three women in the film are all young and attractive, even the witch.

I'm interested in the historical period. The film posits a feasible solution to a mystery.

I didn't let my annoyance spoil the film. Yes, it is a quality production.
