DVD: Centurion (Blu-ray)

DVD (Blu-ray) CenturionAhh, a good day, but a busy one.  I had a speedy journey back (from the school), and arrived home around 5.30. The girls had bought me a chocolate bottle of wine with ‘Mr Chairman’ piped on it – excellent!

We then sat down to a good meal of steak and chips with a glass of wine or three. Next, rifled-through through my growing  collection of unwatched (I’ve just been too busy!) Blu-ray DVDs and chose Centurion, a sort of Gladiator-lite but with (even) more blood and (much) less of a story. 

Starring Michael Fassbender, it’s certainly not a film to watch whilst eating your kebab if you’re squeamish. It didn’t hold-back in the blood department or the ‘thuds’ and ‘squelching’ sounds during the numerous fight-scenes – yuk! – and was the most graphically violent films I’ve ever seen.

On the plus side, the scenery was stunning (New Zealand?) and the sound-track was pretty good too! Definitely worth a watch – just don’t eat at the same time!
