Description

A Roman epic adventure, based on the classic novel of the same name, set in the dangerous world of second-century Britain. In 140 AD, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland, young centurion Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) arrives from Rome to solve the mystery and restore the reputation of his father, the commander of the Ninth.

Accompanied only by his British slave Esca (Jamie Bell), Marcus sets out across Hadrian's Wall into the uncharted highlands of Caledonia - to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father's memory, and retrieve the lost legion's golden emblem, the Eagle of the Ninth.

I bought The Eagle for my husband who loves the Roman historicals by Simon Scarrow. He thoroughly enjoyed the film, but was upset that it portrayed the Scots as totally barbaric. Whereas, in reality, every race was as bad as the next. I don't usually enjoy these types of films, but I enjoyed the story. At least it wasn't as blood-thirsty as 300 or Spartacus Blood and Sand.

The setting is interesting, the action on The Eagle is well staged but the tension never really arrives. Donald Sutherland has all the prescence, Jamie far less of it. The end battle is quite picturesque but the final scene is more of two malplaced school boys than of a former slave and an ex military leaving the halls of power. I hoped for more, and the chance of a supernatural twist is overlooked!

The Eagle is based on Rosemary Sutcliffe's 1950s children's book The Eagle of the Ninth, part of a trilogy on Roman Britain. The film dramatically brings the book to life and is reasonably faithful to the original. A good film starts with a good story and the original tale has stood the test of time and is still widely read by adults as well as young people. The film is especially interesting as it is set in Roman Britain, mostly on or beyond Hadrian's Wall, a place I revisited in Summer 2010. This film (and its competitor Centurion, even more loosely based on the same story) are continuing the renewed interest in Roman epics, which started with Gladiator. As a convinced Romanophile I really enjoyed the film, which had plenty of pace, action and good scenery. I thought The Eagle brought Roman Britain convincingly to life and I recommend it.
