an interesting story with some good acting, but quite predictable.

In my opinion, this is the best movie Channing Tatum has done so far in his career. And that goes for Jamie Bell too. The story is very dramatic and becomes personal, not just for them but for me too. The historical details are all handled wonderfully, and I always end this movie cheering and laughing and crying. I recommend this movie to everyone who loves movies based in history and ancient cultures.

Channing Tatum has his best role to date in this fictional story from a true time period.
The Romans have conquered most of Europe and parts of Asia, but each time they try to invade the cold, barren lands (Scotland)north of Brittania ( England) they get their arses kicked!
They have tried for 10 years to destroy The Picts, but failed. Hadrian's wall is built and Rome washes its hands of the matter. Turns out that is as far as it goes with true historical events. The rest is pure entertainment and the quest for a lost Roman guide-on of a huge, golden eagle. Marcus(Tatum) takes his slave with him and they infiltrate
the Pict stronghold.
Rousing entertainment, and a pure joy just to see the beautiful scenery of Scotland.
Surprisingly a well-made movie with Donald Sutherland and the talented actor who played
'The King of Louisiana' on True Blood (HBO). Don't bother with the previous reviewer. Man up and see the UNrated Version which is also included on the DVD.( More blood and legs getting chopped off!)
