In 2nd-century Britain, a Roman soldier (Channing Tatum) embarks on a dangerous quest to restore the reputation of his father in this thrilling Unrated version not seen in theaters!
The Eagle (Unrated)
From acclaimed director Kevin Macdonald comes a thrilling Unrated version of the adventure that’s even more gripping, gritty, action-packed! In 2nd-Century Britain, celebrated Roman soldier Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) embarks on a dangerous quest to restore the tarnished reputation of his father and find the golden emblem that disappeared with him and thousands of troops twenty years earlier. But the highlands of Caledonia are a savage wilderness, and Marcus must rely on his embittered slave, Esca (Jamie Bell), to navigate the perilous region. Co-starring Donald Sutherland, it’s a journey that tests the boundaries of loyalty and betrayal, friendship and hatred, deceit and heroism.

Best of all is Anthony Dod Mantle's breathtaking photography: the Scottish Highlands have never looked so eerily, threateningly beautiful.

The story sags in the middle, as our wanderers traipse through the highlands-not a happy environment for Tatum, who, before his journey even begins, looks all at sea in this distant age.

Wild-eyed, long-haired Brits leap atop the Romans' shields as the soldiers blindly hack away, the bodies so close that you can barely tell the victor from the vanquished. The battles in the fog and rain have a hallucinatory power.

However you slice it, The Eagle is hokum, but modern-day Scots may get a kick out of the film's depiction of their ancestors as mud-caked hellions. Modern-day Romans will have to settle for less.

The latest sandals-and-swords outing, "The Eagle" has landed . . . with a thud.

There's a predictable arc, as the two enemies have to overcome their mutual mistrust to survive.

It's even less interesting than "Centurion."
2/11/2011 by David Germain
It's hard to go along for the ride when the characters act more like statuary than people.

A long slog through ancient muck, so-so sword fights and dumb luck.
2/11/2011 by Tom Long
Alas, from its scruffy period melodrama to its repetitious battles and endless cross-country shots, this film is all grandiosity with no real heft.

Becomes absurd precisely when Channing Tatum marches onto the scene as a Roman army commander.

The Eagle makes for an okay parent-and-young-son film outing. But you'll want to get your youngster the Sutcliff paperback.
2/11/2011 by Eric D. Snider
Less epic than Gladiator, less ridiculous than last year's Centurion, less homoerotic than Top Gun (but just barely), this is perfectly acceptable matinee fodder.
2/10/2011 by Scott Bowles
Despite some breathtaking scenery and documentary-like realism, The Eagle ultimately falls to some surprising contrivances that seem written by focus groups.
2/10/2011 by Carrie Rickey
A muscularly entertaining adventure inspired by Rosemary Sutcliff's historical fiction The Eagle of the Ninth, hugely popular in middle schools in the mid-20th century.
2/10/2011 by Michael Wilmington
Exciting and even moving, this robust epic is filled with action, male bonding, and a terrifying sense of wilderness.
2/10/2011 by Amy Biancolli
Anthony Dod Mantle's cinematography is kinetic when it needs to be, ruminative and pretty when it doesn't. It looks good.

If this episodic quest still manages to feel too flat and mild, at least it gives us the mysterious Highlands and the Celtic dirge of Atli rvarsson's outstanding score.

Lumbering along for a bit less than two hours, which passes like three, it feels more like a chore than like an adventure.

Channing Tatum plays Marcus Aquila with an earnest furrowed brow that could indicate gravitas or constipation.
