Fantasia Day 17 - Centurion
I don't have a whole lot to say about Centurion. It is definitely the slickest, biggest budget movie I've seen at Fantasia this year. It also thoroughly entertaining, a rugged and rousing behind enemy lines story with fantastic visuals. Morally, it is interesting in that there really doesn't seem to be any bad guys. I mean there are antagonists, the Picts and the Romans have to defeat them, but the movie makes sure you are sympathetic to both sides. It makes for a more interesting drama, but perhaps a less gripping thriller, because as the audience, you are kind of ambivalent. I think this review over at Twitch Film captures my feelings perfectly.
