The Eagle

DVD Verdict
21 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The Eagle came and went from theaters quickly and mysteriously, which is ironic when you consider that the plot is about a legion of soldiers disappearing without a trace in the Northern parts of the United Kingdom. It's a Roman epic starring young dancer/model Channing Tatum ( G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra ), and I wasn't expecting it to be a moving mini-epic about two men journeying to the end of their known world.

  • Excerpt: THE EAGLE The Eagle , directed by Kevin Macdonald and adapted from Rosemary Sutcliff's 1954 historical novel The Eagle of the Ninth , a best-selling tale of 2nd-century Roman legions and youthful derring-do on the far side of Hadrian's Wall, is a thunderous boys' adventure of the old-school type — there's not a female speaking part in the entire movie.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
21 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Full of action-adventure appeal, "The Eagle" is a completely serviceable movie for those who like films with swords n' sandals. Based on the famously lost Ninth Legion of Rome, the plot is erratic, but is carried by actors who surprisingly acquit themselves with a good deal of restraint in delivering likeable characters. Although it may all feel a little too familiar, it's supported by some splendid cinematography that makes for an enjoyable enough story.

  • Excerpt: På Discovery Channel går det ibland en ganska fånig serie om hur saker egentligen tillverkas. Man får se hur traktordäck kommer till och hur blybatterier skapas. Vad som slår mig är att i alla fall har man en idé, sedan gör man denna idé till något som man kan i snabb takt pressa fram, så att alla slutprodukter ser likadana ut. Ibland undrar jag om inte filmindustrin använder sig av samma gjutformar och ändrar bara marginellt på mönstret.

  • Conclusion: Filmen: Ibland önskar jag att våra filmrecensioner kunde bestå enbart av korta ljudklipp som berättar allt ni behöver veta. I så fall skulle The Eagle lätt kunna beskrivas med ett rungande "njaaa". För det är den känslan man får när man tittar på Kevin Macdonalds tolkning av den gamla romerska legenden om nionde legionen som försvann under ett uppdrag i Storbritannien.

  • Excerpt: De historische achtergrond van ‘The eagle’ is beter dan de uiteindelijke film. Zo’n 1900 jaar geleden was het Romeinse Rijk zo ongeveer op zijn hoogtepunt. Het lukte de Romeinen echter niet de Schotse Hooglanden in te lijven (en een dorpje in Gallië natuurlijk...). Om de Schotten buiten de deur te houden, werd in Engeland de Muur van Hadrianus gebouwd, een 117 kilometer lang bouwwerk van steen en plaggen.

  • Excerpt: Romerne er igjen filmhelter. The Eagle er en tullete, men stilig actionhistorie om to fiender som må stå sammen for å utføre et farlig redningsoppdrag. Jeg liker skildringen av en fordums verden med tåkefullt og mystisk landskap. Jeg er ikke så gæren etter hovedrolleinnehaveren og de bleike voldsscenene, men ble likevel godt underholdt!
