The Eagle is a rip snorting adventure tale of the sort made before CGI, 3 D and alphabet soup in general took the fun out of moviegoing.
That means this sword and sandals epic is also a mildly engaging and roughly historical action picture.
Anyone else ready for rugged action involving swords, sandals, designated savages, and bonding between political adversaries is bound to fall in happi ..
The Eagle sticks close to its source material, which should stand it in good stead overseas but will do little for the U.S. market, given that the Ame ..
The ensuing battles between the Romans and warrior Picts are shot with a phantasmagoric intensity that foregrounds the confusion, noise, and brutality ..
Good fight scenes, but a confusion of plot, culture and accents make this a lesser example of the sword n sandal epic.
But The Eagles hokey pleasures were enough for me, its macho enthusiasm about itself somehow infectious.
More thoughtful and certainly more historically informed than the Boys Own style adventure quests to which it has sometimes mistakenly been likened, i ..

The Spy Who Dumped Me is an action comedy withwell, it has action.
Perfectly servicable sword n sandal action flick. Channing Tatum continues to evolve as a leading man, but Jamie Bell steals the show.
Despite its bleak atmosphere and sparse storyline, period drama The Eagle is a pleasant surprise. It entertains with some great sword play, and the th ..

The Eagle makes for an okay parent and young son film outing. But youll want to get your youngster the Sutcliff paperback.

This phony friction marked every buddy cop film of the 80s and can end only one way.
Still, the linguistic switcheroo takes a little getting used to, at least for anyone with much experience watching epic cinema.

But the greatest impediment of all is the square jawed, flat talking Tatum, who is so wooden he presents a fire hazard.
However you slice it, The Eagle is hokum, but modern day Scots may get a kick out of the films depiction of their ancestors.
Exciting and even moving, this robust epic is filled with action, male bonding, and a terrifying sense of wilderness.
Its a nicely nuanced outlook for a deceptively simple story to take.
Unsurprisingly, Macdonald films the scenery (of Scotland and Hungary) spectacularly, with Anthony Dod Mantles visceral camerawork positioning the char ..

It isnt like it has magical properties.Nor will recovering it prove anything about Aquilas father.
New York Post
The Eagle gets low marks for originality.Thats partly bad luck: a recent film called Centurion covered similar ground.
In every respect the language, the characterisation, the staging of the action sequences and the historical resonance The Eagle is superior.
But its robust form stands up well, with elements of Ridley Scotts Gladiator and Michael Manns The Last of the Mohicans.
We admire its cultural achievements while condemning its brutality, and in that tension we see our own ideals and failures reflected.
Its almost new and interesting, but mostly just hints at some intriguing ideas.
What It Delivers As Payoff For Your Suspension of Everything You Know as a Modern Human Being: Its got its atmosphere down tight.
Predictable action cinema convention rather than history, The Eagle still does not lay any grievous entertainment egg.

Most of the time people try to do that, they end up with a movie like The Eagle..Its quite lovely to look at, but it doesnt really mean anything.

Its a shame because it pierces the layer of authenticity that the director so carefully and convincingly labors to create.
To see the director of the great docudrama Touching the Void produce such a drab piece of epic adventure as The Eagle is appalling.
like many modern war films, it gets too introspective on the horrors of war and the uncertain righteousness of any one side
It might be silly to put such weight on a sword and sandal adventure like The Eagle.

At the heart of The Eagle is a nice idea, but one that needed some smart writing to give it wings.

The Eagle is an enjoyable film that in no way should be taken as historically literate, let alone accurate.

But the movies upbeat ending, which stops just short of a freeze frame high five, recalls another saying: At the movies, all roads lead to Hollywood.
Watching The Eagle is a lot more rewarding than listening to the picture.

Not so much, but theres already enough short, declarative simplicity to the throwback tone and structure of this Roman Empire adventure.

On its surface, The Eagle is about family honor, but at its core, its a buddy bonding film.
It is pretty weird hearing Romans speak with North American accents in the absorbing adventure saga The Eagle.
They never returned; Legion and Eagle simply vanished into the mists.

Anthony Dod Mantles cinematography is kinetic when it needs to be, ruminative and pretty when it doesnt.It looks good.
His performance isnt bad, but it is predictable and never really crackles to life.

Had Macdonald opted to trim certain portions, this final leg of the film might have made the whole adventure worth it.

A movie like this ordinarily has big, epic, bloody battle sequences, but this one is aimed squarely at the PG 13 target.
What makes this British U.S. co production unusual is that it takes as its main hero an arrogant Roman invader.
Fighting isnt big and it isnt clever. But, in the case of The Eagle, its the most interesting part of the movie.
Nice high concept and it makes sense in theory.In practice, its almost laughable.
