Rotten Tomatoes Has First Look At Neil Marshall’s Centurion

centurion-olga

I’m a Neil Marshall fan.  He hooked me early on with Dog Soldiers.  A movie I bought on DVD used for $4 based on the cover alone.  Marines? Werewolves? I’m in.  Then with The Descent he showcased the ability to scare the hell out of me.  Finally, with Doomsday (a tribute of sorts to post-apocalyptic movies of the 80′s, trashed by critics) he let his inner-geek hang out.  I love Doomsday for what it is, so screw you critics and haters.

Now, Neil Marshall is showing his potential Epic side (and ability to leave the letter “D” out of his titles) with Centurion.  Set in 117 AD, Centurion tells the story of a group of Roman soldiers who must fight for their lives behind enemy lines after their legion is decimated in a devastating guerrilla attack.  It stars Michael Fassbender, Olga Kurylenko, Dominic West, and Imogen Poots.

Check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Centurion , courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes after the jump.

Review:

Marvel’s The Punisher has always been plagued by bad film adaptations.  The utterly awful Dolph Lundgren 1989 The Punisher has always left a bad taste in the mouth for fans of the comic.  In 2004 Thomas Jane donned the Skull T-Shirt in a curiously bloodless The Punisher with John Travolta sinking an otherwise enjoyable action flick.  Now, in 2008 we have attempt numero tres with Ray Stevenson (Outpost, Rome) as Frank Castle.  Easily the best version of The Punisher we’ve seen on screen, Punisher: Warzone brings  back the carnage that makes The Punisher the character we love.
