nel 140 d.c. l'impero romano si estende fino alla britannia, anche se non ha il controllo di tutte le regioni e l'estremo nord e' governato dalle tribu' ribelli della caledonia (l'attuale scozia). vent'anni dopo l'inspiegabile scomparsa dell'intera nona legione nei monti della caledonia, il giovane centurione marcus aquila giunge da roma per risolvere il mistero e risollevare la reputazione del padre, comandante della legione. accompagnato solo dallo schiavo britannico esca, marcus varca il vallo di adriano e si reca in caledonia per confrontarsi con le tribu' selvagge del luogo, far pace con la memoria del padre e recuperare l'emblema dorato della legione, l'aquila della nona.

THE EAGLE R2 DVD

There can be very few school boys of the 1950's who had not read and enjoyed the historical novels of Rosemary Sutcliff. For myself, The Eagle of the Ninth was probably my first introduction to the historical novel and the book that hooked me onto the genre for life.

The release of the new film `The Eagle' has triggered a new world wide interest in Rosemary Sutcliff's Roman books with new editions in the bookshops and a belated re-release of the BBC Radio drama on CD. The big surprise is probably that the film industry has not previously used these novels as the basis for a movie. I did buy the film when it was first released but it is only recently that I have viewed it.

Despite the many poor reviews that this film has received it really is not all that bad at all. The two lead actors Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell put in good performances and there is a short appearance by Donald Sutherland, the historical details are remarkably good and the scenic filming is at ttimes quite spectacular. Most of the location filming was made in Hungary but some scenes were actually shot around Loch Lomond.

Naturally, as with all movies, the film does deviate from the book quite considerably, characters are left out or changed; strangely there is no female love interest, and certain events were altered to give the film a more viewer friendly feel. Ignore the undisguised American accents and it is a good historical actioner; anyway, who is to say that the Roman accent did not sound trans-Atlantic to the Celts anyway.

Not the best Roman action film and will probably be a disappointment to serious Sutcliff fans, but I enjoyed it never-the-less.

This pseudo history follows the "Centurion" pseudo history, although it is not necessary to sit through that one to watch this one. During the "Centurion" campaign, they lost their gold eagle standard to the Picts. OMG! Channing Tatum plays Marcus Aquila, who is determined to get the symbol returned for gods and empire, lost by his father. In the beginning he assumes command of the Britain outpost. His men see him as a little "wet behind the ears." However, his attention to detail and heroics save the fort.

In one early scene, it wasn't safe to send out a patrol because a Druid priest was going about the villages. hmmm. Marcus is injured and is moved to a hospital, given numerous awards for bravery and discharged because of his wounds. He saves the life of a slave, Eska, who lets it known he hates Rome and everything Marcus stands for. Marcus, joined by his new slave go on a mission to cross Hadrian's Wall and recover the lost golden eagle, thus restoring honor to Rome and his father.

While Marcus talks about the glory of Rome, Eska talks about their atrocities and how his family was slain at their hand and lands stolen. About this point in the fictional narrative one should figure out the tale is meant to be symbolic for our own country.

The sound track sounded like something that is old Celtic, with off setting drums. kudos.

As a film fan and an amateur student of ancient history, I was quite prepared for this movie to be irritatingly facile and bear no relation to actual events.
But this is a quality film - historically on the money (with one or two very small exceptions), decent screenplay, good lead performances (especially Jamie Bell), fantastic photography, and very effective celtic mood music.
I was even moved to tears here and there. If you liked Apocalypto, Valhalla Rising and Gladiator, you will like this. There are plenty of action sequences but without gratuitous gore but it also has the emotional tug that films for grown-ups should have.
A Roman bromance with echoes of The Defiant Ones - definitely worth an airing.

This is an adaptation of Rosemary Sutcliff's novel of the mysterious disappearance of Rome's ninth legion north of Hadrian's Wall. I have not seen similar films based on the same premiss about the lost ninth legion in Roman Britain, such as `Centurion' (2010), and (less so) `The Last Legion' (2007), but `The Eagle' is certainly not as "hideously violent" as the former.

It's a fine yarn, told relatively well, based around the relationship between ex-military commander Marcus (Channing Tatum) and the slave he saves from death in a gladiatorial contest, Esca (Jamie Bell). (Surprisingly, the director admits to not knowing why Marcus saves Esca: perhaps there was some homo-erotic subtext?) Together they form a team that goes north of Hadrian's Wall to try and locate and bring back the eagle-standard of the lost legion that had been led by Marcus's father at the time of its disappearance.

I am glad to say that attention was maintained by this reviewer and his partner throughout the film, and the actors give committed performances. This is certainly not a bad film. There is a problem, though, with the last fight: suddenly, there appear to be twice as many old legionaries as turned up five minutes before. And for a man as truly exhausted at the end as Marcus must have been, one wonders whence he obtained his energy for the final fight, and equally, whence he obtained his sword!

References to Rosemary Sutcliff's novel are few and far between in the director's commentary, although he admits elsewhere that he loved the book as a child. Indeed, there is no information on why the title `The Eagle' was chosen instead of that of Sutcliff's original novel. (Was it because the studio feared American audiences would think this was a ninth instalment of a film series?
