Neil Marshall United Kingdom, 2010

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Centurion

Formulaic, with no emphasis on characterization, emotion, or anything but gore-soaked mayhem. Yet, it's well paced and when the action hits, it ignites machismo and adrenaline. Centurion isn't as glorious a mash-up as Doomsday, or clever like Dog Soldiers and The Descent, but delivers no bullshit fights. Despite having no unique bones in its body, even in its setpieces, it's another B-film crowd pleaser by Marshall.
