DVD: Centurion (15)
An accomplished director of horror films Neil Marshall may be, but his first foray into historical epics is somewhat flat. Despite being full of high-octane running, it never seems to go anywhere.
Dominic West and Michael Fassbender are energetic Romans leading troops against the barbarous Picts, only to find themselves stuck deep behind enemy lines without a cat-in-hell's chance of making it home to safety. Long on blood, gore and snarling, this film is rather short on discernible plot. A smattering of romance and the rather tremulous exploration of the psychology of war fails to conceal the fact that this film is simply an unfortunate ragbag of disjointed chase scenes.
