Channing Tatum wears a skirt as a 2nd-century soldier in this dreary sandle-and-sword adventure. The story gets unintended laughs as Tatum and his slave (Jamie Bell) cross the U.K. searching for an eagle emblem, with Bell offering a British accent and Tatum speaking American English (and brooding throughout like an underwear model). There's even a Survivor moment: Bell offers an injured Tatum rodent meat, tail still on. Ick!)
