Movie Review: Centurion (2010)

hahaha Centurion! can you guess who's in it?? yeah that's right. Michael Fassbender! Again. LOL. Yesterday I felt the urge to watch one of his movies, and I thought of Centurion. Since I got the dvd and I haven't watched it yet, so... I watched it!!!

I think I don't have to brag about how good he is in the movie. I mean he's Michael Fassbender, need I say more? there's this thing about him that makes the character seemed to be very charismatic and charming. I don't know, is it just me? or.. haha the thing is, when he played a role, he really sank into the depth of his character. I just thought that that's the most important thing an actor should do in a movie.

As for the movies. well, the story itself is a bit flat I think.. they're just a bunch of soldiers and survivors from an ambush, running for their lives and hunted by their enemy. they just wanted to go home, but they can't do that because their enemy is hunting them like predators hunt their preys. their enemy is a ruthless tribe, a really sadistic one. they gave no mercy for the Romans. it's some kind of something The Romans did in the past that makes them hate the Romans so much.

I can't stand the bloody violence that filled the entire movie. haha. really. it's like the blood comes splattered from the screen and I can taste the blood myself. Well, for me personally, I don't like barbaric action movies as such, so... this movie isn't one of my favorite movie. and as I've mentioned earlier, the story isn't so good as well.

 "In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, piss and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet" -Centurion-
