Fun, clean, family adventure movie.

Scary thought of child being hunted and family killed, but otherwise fun, clean and very family-friendly.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

The leaps of faith required for this brutally bloody film are many. But once you've already made one or two of 'em, it's easy enough to accept that Bollywood superstar Rai is as likely to a super-lethal fighter as Mr. Darcy. Both Aurelius and Mira suffer betrayal by their leaders, which prompts their decisions to cut ties with the past and throw their lot in with the boy, the apparent future of Rome.

The question of country -- of borders that need defending and serve as markers for identity -- remains mostly unresolved. The fact that the titular legion has been abandoned by foundering Rome and now waits for a mission in Britannia suggests that the whole empire thing isn't all it's cracked up to be.
