Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald re-teams with The Last King of Scotland screenwriter Jeremy Brock for this historical epic set in second century Britain and following young centurion Marcus Aquila on his quest to solve the mystery of the missing Ninth Legion. The year is 135 A.D. It's been 15 years since the Ninth Legion went missing in the mountains of Scotland, and it's up to Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) to find out what happened. His own father was the commander of the Ninth, and by discovering what fate befell the fearless leader, Aquila could restore his failing reputation. Crossing Hadrian's Wall and navigating the treacherous highlands of Caledonia won't be easy though, especially since Aquila's only traveling companion is his British slave, Esca (Jamie Bell). Along the way, Aquila will attempt to make peace with his father's memory as he and Esca confront the savage tribes of the land and attempt to recover the lost legion's golden emblem -- the treasured Eagle of the North. Donald Sutherland and Mark Strong fill out the rest of the starring cast.

This movie seems to be rather tightly edited. On first viewing I was not sure how I liked it. However, It is one of those films that becomes better and better with each viewing as you notice the detail of the battle scenes, the scattered irony, and (most importantly) the development of friendship and respect between two young soldiers of different cultures. It has become one of my favorite videos.

Though it's definitely not my favorite epic, this movie really was actually pretty good. I had heard varrying things, but after watching it I would have to say that I rather liked it. It's a great tale of honor and bravery. I would recommend it if you are into epics at all. It's pretty worthwhile.

Heard this wasn't that good. After watching it, I thought it was good. Not great but still good.
