Quotes

Boudica: My brave warriors! Today we face a mighty Roman army. They are strong, but we are stronger. Their weapons and their wealth will not protect them. They are no match for our fierce hearts; our courage; our passion; and they never will be.
[beat]
Boudica: You may die today - and I may die - but we will do so in good heart. And if you find yourself on the tip of a Roman sword, you look into his eyes and laugh! For he can never kill you. Shed one drop of blood on this land and you live in the place you love ...

Why not just stick to the facts.
16 August 2005 | by Sulla-2See all my reviews

I have no problems with film makers using their imagination when there is a lack of information. I fail to see the sense of deliberately distorting the facts though. Believe me, they could make a splendid film just sticking to the facts. A Book about Suetonius called 'Imperial Governor' would make the basis of a fine film. Others have pointed out the stupid mistakes in this film and the children running rings round trained ruthless soldiers was just plain silly. The final battle started of quite well and good use was made of technology. However, the Romans won battles like this using tight shield formations, NOT hand to hand fighting. I have no problems with the acting at all, just the story lines.
