The Eagle

An insipid story about a lost Roman legion that features a cardboard performance from one Channing Tatum. Made for people who are looking for a complete, brainless action movie that doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.

Rated PG-13 for battle sequences and some disturbing images.

The Eagle

Rome has been pushing up into England as far as they can for a while now. They’ve set up forts, built up settlements, and pushed the native people of Britain further North. Hadrian’s Wall was erected as a marker where the Roman occupation ended and the “savage” wilderness began. No Roman could survive past the wall. Well, that’s only the case if the Roman isn’t played by Channing Tatum.
