Boudica is an innocent sixteen-year-old girl who is forced into an arranged marriage by her father, the leader of a Celtic Tribe. However, her mother is unsure, doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter; so much so that she takes Boudica and persuades her to flee the village and live in her childhood home, away from an arranged marriage and a miserable life. Confusion and uncertainty fills Boudica's world as she faces so many challenges - the constant protection from her mother, falling in love, the ambiguity of her father's whereabouts and finding her inner strength and power. It is only a matter of time before the past catches up with everyone and Boudica must transform from a girl into the warrior queen of legend in order to protect the lives of those she loves.Written by
Complete let down even for die-hard fans of the genre
I bought this for £3, having been impressed by the DVD cover and story on the back.
I have to say this film does not live up to the hype at all. poor lighting that made everybody look like they were under a spotlight. Epic battle scenes? were more like a few slaps and tussles with as much grace as a bunch of drunk teenagers.
Passionate Fighting Spirit? Only at the end when she actually took up the position of warrior queen.
The sad thing is this could have been brilliant even without a big budget. But it seems they wasted their mediocre budget on the costumes instead of actually writing a decent storyline.
Learn from my mistake and don't be fooled by the impressive cover and avoid this like the plague.
