clips here too
Saw Centurion last night, on the first day of its release in the UK. Although parts were excellent, I was underwhelmed overall. It wasn't the historical inaccuracies (although some really grated, I could take the rest - it was a film after all, not a book). No, it was the story, which just didn't engage me the way I'd hoped. Fassbender is excellent, and so are many of the combat scenes *note - not for the squeamish - they're really gory*. Three stars out of five. Hoping that Eagle of the Ninth will impress more. (And Agora.)
