For honor and the eagle

  • Summary: Around the year 100, the Roman Legio IX Hispana supposedly went missing somewhere in Britain. Nobody really knows what happened to them. But that hasn't stopped writers and moviemakers from speculating about what did happen. "The Eagle" is a solid adaptation of Rosemary Sutcliff's novel "The Eagle of the Ninth" -- a gritty, mud-slicked quest movie set in a time when Rome still ruled the world.

The Eagle

  • Summary: 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

  • Summary: 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

  • Summary: 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.
