The Eagle
Set around 140 AD, this swords-and-sandals epic follows a young Roman soldier who wants to restore his family's honour. Twenty years ago, his father marched with the Ninth legion into Scotland, bearing the Eagle emblem, and promptly disappeared with all 5000 soldiers. The son, together with a brave English slave, wants to find out what happened and recover the Eagle to restore his family's good name. The task will not be easy in a hostile country.

Box Office
Steve Ramos quote iconThe storytelling falters throughout and The Eagle, despite its grandeur, turns out to be Macdonald's most disappointing effort.
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe 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.
15
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconThe 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.
5
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIt's quite likely this flick will follow suit of its real life subjects and simply vanish from the minds of moviegoers quite quickly.

Tomatometer quote iconThe 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.
