If you have Scottish ancestry- you will love this movie. It clearly shows the bravery and cunning of the original population, which refused to be defeated. It demonstrates why the Nazis feared Scotland's regiments during the World War. It is quite historically accurate.

GOOD movie. I liked it. Very entertaining. Tough people. I really like the "lady" who opposed the Romans.

Very much a rated R movie with blood and brutal killings. The fight scences are magnificent though. Roman legion goes against native Scotland ones called "Picts". Displays both sides of the conflict. The female lead Pict Is so cold and so well acted. You can really get caught up in the story and background. Its a story of a solider being loyal to his fellow mates. Also a story of a people defending their home to an invading army. The countryside is a beautiful backdrop that adds to the realism. You can tell this was on location, no green scene, no sound stage.

I'll be honest with you, you know all those movies with half clothed women that really don't have much to do with the narritive but are a surefire way to get the fellas to see it? Well ladies, this one is for us. Talk about Man Meat. Sexy Fassbender skantly clad is a lovely sight. That being said, the movie is far from good. Even with all the lovely men, i just couldn't keep watching it.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Very predictable movie. Not too bad---good performance.

Not worth it, in my opinion. And I typically enjoy historical movies like this.

Well, I can see why I've never heard of this movie, but I've seen lots worse. OMG, the number of bloody ways to die in battle, I think they got paid by body count. I don't think I'd ever watch it again.

this is a solid story of loyalty, honor, courage and ultimate betrayal. the moral may very well be...a simple life...
