Decent story and characters (Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell play well off each other) but it's lacking that spark to make it truly memorable. It just moves a bit too slow to make a strong impression - but if you like classic (as in Roman) stories - it's a good watch, just don't expect it to linger.

"The Eagle" is a film which revolves around Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) who quests to discover what really happened twenty years ago related to his father's disappearance. With him is Esca (Jamie Bell), his servant to fight and regain his family's honor by bringing back the Golden Eagle. I didn't expect much from this film but it turned out to be a good watch for me. Tatum's performance was satisfying while I find Bell's better into his. Story wise, not a bad one but maybe a lot are disappointed because it doesn't have enough fight scenes knowing Marcus should "fight" for honor. Generally, a smooth one but not a great one.

"The Eagle" by Yojimbo

A Roman centurion injured in battle is honourably discharged and finds new purpose by seeking out the standard lost by his father's defeated legion twenty years earlier.

Channing Tatum is the square-jawed Yankee Doodle Roman who finds an ally in Briton Jamie Bell who inevitably owes him a debt of honour to help him and they go through the “all brave soldiers are brothers underneath” schtick of the modern war film. The early scenes are actually very nicely done with some well shot Celtic scenery and s...
