Distinctly average, probably better if you haven't read the book,
This review is from: The Eagle [DVD]  (DVD)
Manages to lose the characterisation of the book, especially the relationship between Marcus and Esca, and everyone in the film is fairly one-dimensional. It's nicely shot though, and they've given it a more decisive ending. If you're not familiar with the story then it will be suitably entertaining, but it will probably annoy you if you've read Rosemary Sutciff's book first.
