The Eagle is one of the better Roman Empire stories out there because Channing Tatum pours his heart and soul out for his character. His determination to find the missing “eagle emblem”, which was a central figure in his dad’s army, is what really won me over. The first battle scene is not great and anticlimactic, yet to watch our wounded hero stand up for what he believes in at the end is awe-inspiring. Critics and movie goers didn’t really enjoy this film as much as I did because after watching it at the theatre, I bought it.
