Review : In 140 AD, a young Roman centurion attempts to uncover the truth about the disappearance of his father's legion—the Ninth—in the north of Britain 20 years previously. The centurion, Marcus Aquila (Tatum), travels with a British slave, Esca (Bell), beyond Hadrian's Wall into Caledonia (now known as Scotland) where he must confront the Pictish tribes to recover the legion's eagle standard and restore his father's reputation. It's revealed that all but a small amount of deserters were killed in an ambush by the tribes and Esca knew the truth the whole time as his tribe was one of the ones that attacked the Ninth.

The two are found by the Seal People, the most vicious of the tribes, and Esca claims that Marcus is his slave and betrays him in order to get his freedom. Eventually Esca reveals his actions are a ploy to infiltrate the tribe and the two sucessfully retrieve the eagle which is in the possesion of the Seal People. The two flee, chased by the Seal People, but Marcus is wounded. Marcus tries to stay behind and have Esca finish the mission, but Esca refuses to abandon his friend, even after Marcus grants him his freedom. Esca heads out to look for horses and returns with the survivors of the Ninth who wish to help protect the eagle and put themselves under Marcus' command. Marcus, Esca and the survivors succesfully protect the eagle and defeat the Seal People, although many of the Ninth fall. Marcus returns the eagle to Rome, where his family's honor is restored and there is talk of reforming the Ninth under his command. The movie ends with Marcus and Esca wondering what they'll do next and Marcus leaving it up to Esca. Source : wikipedia
