Wesley Morris Camp crusade lacking muscle

Todd McCarthy Taking flight
Steve Ramos The storytelling falters throughout and The Eagle, despite its grandeur, turns out to be Macdonald's most disappointing effort.
|Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert 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.
Jason Anderson The impressive scenery and solid performances (a shaggy Donald Sutherland appears as Marcus’ uncle) don’t make up for the colourless dialogue, stock characters and plodding nature of the storytelling.
C. Fuchs It's quite likely this flick will follow suit of its real life subjects and simply vanish from the minds of moviegoers quite quickly.
Tomatometer The Eagle has a pleasantly traditional action-adventure appeal, but it's drowned out by Kevin Macdonald's stolid direction and Channing Tatum's uninspired work in the central role.
