Movie Summary

Director:
Kevin Macdonald
Released:
2011
Rating:
PG-13
From acclaimed director Kevin Macdonald comes a thrilling Unrated version of the adventure that's even more gripping, gritty, action-packed! In 2nd-Century Britain, celebrated Roman soldier Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) embarks on a dangerous quest to restore the tarnished reputation of his father and find the golden emblem that disappeared with him and thousands of troops twenty years earlier. But the highlands of Caledonia are a savage wilderness, and Marcus must rely on his embittered slave, Esca (Jamie Bell), to navigate the perilous region. Co-starring Donald Sutherland, it's a journey that tests the boundaries of loyalty and betrayal, friendship and hatred, deceit and heroism.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Variety Brian Lowry

    While the movie doesn't wholly succeed, there's enough to like here -- including Channing Tatum's credible performance as a tradition-bound Roman soldier.

  • 50

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Lumbering along for a bit less than two hours, which passes like three, it feels more like a chore than like an adventure.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    Plays it straight down the middle, neither pushing its contemporary vantage point nor embracing the chance for B-movie glory.
