What he's missing in The Eagle is that spark of the insane - the slightly lunatic fever that makes us unable to keep our eyes off him (Channing Tatum). show more
I\'m interested in all things Roman, but usually I get the days of the Republic as subject matter. Not only is this movie in the era of \"The Gladiator,\" I thought it a much better story line: Honor and loyalty. The scenery is gorgeous and the theme is well played by all (especially Tatum and Jamie Bell as the slave Esca). I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in early Romans living anywhere but Italy. It is a history lesson easy to absorb.
Loved the movie! Loved also the attention to detail, except for one little detail. The two brown horses the stars were riding suddenly turned into a beautiful white one and a black Fresian war horse once they reached the woods. How could anyone miss that faux pas?
