Quotes

Boudica: Romans, you are damned. You have awakened the terrible anger of our gods and ancestors, and they will show you no mercy. We will crush your bones into the land you have desecrated. We will slit your veins and watch the blood burst from you and shower down upon our soil. We will swallow you up. And our strong green shoots will spring to life where you once stood.
[pause]
Boudica: See your gods tremble and fall before the wrath of Boudica!

Inspiring Tribute
12 January 2004 | by lucy_kriemhildSee all my reviews

I loved Alex Kingston (of ER and numerous British period pieces) as the fierce, yet human Queen Boudica (also spelled Boadicea)! She was believably tough, yet believably naive in her struggles with the overwhelming forces of Rome. The whole plot boils down to a clash of two cultures: one ancient and decentralized and one a "modern" empire which butchers with ruthless efficiency. An inspiring tribute to the human spirit!
