Warrior Queen (2003)
Boudica: Romans, you are damned. You have awakened the terrible anger of our gods and ancestors, and they will show you no mercy. We will crush your bones into the land you have desecrated. We will slit your veins and watch the blood burst from you and shower down upon our soil. We will swallow you up. And our strong green shoots will spring to life where you once stood.
Boudica: See your gods tremble and fall before the wrath of Boudica!

Prasutagus's men: Yeah!
King Prasutagus: [to his men] Hold still. Hold your tongues.
King Prasutagus: Dervalloc, these are our guests, and I will not suffer them to be threatened and insulted.
Boudica: [to Severus] Our people are poets. When Dervalloc speaks of killing, he means using reason to defeat your arguments. When he speaks of sending you home in pieces, he means something quite harmless, I'm sure.
