    There are certain things that no human being could be expected to endure. And a few rare instances when exceptional people rise up beyond the limits of what it is possible to accomplish as a human being, to become known as legends. How can anybody, you may ask, possibly walk proud and fearless right before the enemy that betrayed, tortured and humiliated them - and that is more than capable of wiping out all their people in an instant? Bodicca shows us all how. The film provided a portrayal of Bodicca that was inspiring, a documentation at the suffering of the Iceni - one that mirrors that of many persecuted and extinct tribes - that was humbling, and a look into the past that was eye-opening.

    Excellent Celts vs Romans war movie with some very strong actresses in the cast.

    Somewhat silly tv adaptation of the life of Boudicca. The British are way too good and the Romans alternate between idealistic Claudius and clownishly evil Nero. It's a very fake dichotomy, made worse by the attempts to show that her opponent Suetonius respects her. It isn't accurate and much more importantly it feels false. The attempt to give this film a "happy" ending is laughably confusing.

    WEAK. The acting was forced, the dialogue did not fit, and they left out so much of Queen Boudica's rich and bloody legend.

    To think Masterpiece Theater, that once showcased I, Claudius would later spotlight this on its schedule. When you have a Roman ambassador tell Briton that he needs to learn, "how to play ball", you have to wonder if its drama or farce you're watching. Nero as played by Andrew Lee Potts looks like he's just come from a Green Day concert and he wears armor even when making out with one of his Roman wenches. Alex Kingston makes a strong impression in the lead role, even when she's forced through cliches of the genre (watch for her Braveheart moment). Her acting and physicality are formidable enough to carry interest through to the end, but its a lesser effort from Masterpiece Theater.

    It was good in a way, but it was a bit thin on plot. There were some great things they left out.
