And..... it sucked. Absolutely butchered the book. We're talking Dune level butchery here. Everything that was neat and clever about the book was replaced by Spartacus blood spray action and splosions. The book tapdanced around historical events but had respect for them. That was totally missing from the movie.

Had I not read the book, I would have enjoyed it to a certain degree. They made good use of the 3D and the action sequences were entertaining. But I did read the book, so it sucked.

My recommendation? If you like Spartacus blood spray action and sposions, leave your brain at home and you might enjoy it at a cheap matinee. If you've read the book or plan on reading the book, don't bother.
