THE EA­GLE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

A sword- and- san­dal ro­mance where the at­tire is more con­vinc­ing than any­thing else, this 2nd cen­tury ad­ven­ture fol­lows a young sol­dier ( Chan­ning Ta­tum) who sets out with a slave to find a beloved golden war trin­ket and re­gain his fam­ily’s hon­our. Both were lost years ago when his fa­ther’s le­gion dis­ap­peared while on a kill- and- con­quer mis­sion. While the story has spirit, this ver­sion doesn’t, mop­ing along from ac­tion se­quence to ac­tion se­quence.

Ex­tras: ★★ ½ Short but ef­fec­tive lit­tle mak­ing- of fea­turette plus deleted scenes, al­ter­nate end­ing and ob­vi­ous di­rec­tor’s commentary.
