AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


A nice little tale that is mostly entertaining.  Once or twice it may have lulled too much between the action.

Writing / Production:       

Carried mostly by action packed fight scenes but the dialogue and drama wasn't nearly as horribly scripted as expected.


Michael Fassbender struggled to match the screen presence of Dominic West and Olga Kurylenko who were both pretty good in their respective roles.  Unfortunately since Fassbender was selected to play the title role his inability to bring the goods hurts the picture.


I liked the storyline but it is definitely a movie very much in the spirit of "Gladiator" and "300" etc..


Surprisingly decent and entertaining enough to warrant a look by audiences that like this kind of film.  There is a lot of graphic violence and blood that some audiences will want to avoid and others won't want to miss.
