The Eagle

My Grandchildren are very pleased with The Eagle, it's a thrilling film!

The Eagle

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.

Epic - Yes... Dangerous - No

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

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.

Good Adventure

This is a good adventure film based in Roman Britain. There are several good action sequences and they go to make an enjoyable film.
