Director Neil Marshall has made some good films (The Descent, Dog Soldiers), but he won’t make anyone forget Gladiator with the sword-and-sandal gorefest Centurion. Inglourious Basterds’ Michael Fassbender plays a scrappy Roman soldier leading the remnants of the slaughtered Ninth Legion against the savage, face-painted Picts tribe led by badass Bond babe Olga Kurylenko. The plot’s pretty thin — even for a gladiator movie. Fortunately, when it comes to crunchy impalings and messy arterial geysers, Marshall’s a maestro. B
