An ancient quest fuels this drama, with Channing Tatum ("Dear John") as a Roman soldier determined to find the title symbol, a golden icon that would inspire his legion. Locating it also would do much to restore the reputation of his father, on whose watch it vanished.
Jamie Bell ("Billy Elliot"), Mark Strong and Donald Sutherland also star for director Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland"). DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Macdonald; deleted scenes; alternate ending. *** (PG-13 and unrated versions: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
