Neil Marshall’s “Centurion” seems to be flying by under the radar in the fanboy verse, but it’s not flying under our radar. The movie has everything I love in my period action movies — Roman legionnaires, bound shirtless guys fleeing horsemen, and Olga Kurylenko all made up in paint to stab you through the heart with a spear. That’s my kind of movie! Here’s the latest official pic from “Centurion”.
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.
Starring Olga Kurylenko, Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Noel Clarke, JJ Feild, Riz Ahmed. Directed by Neil Marshall.
