The Eagle ()

directed by
featuring Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, Tahar Rahim, Donald Sutherland

Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald re-teams with The Last King of Scotland screenwriter Jeremy Brock for this historical epic set in second century Britain and following young centurion Marcus Aquila on his quest to solve the mystery of the missing Ninth Legion. The year is 135 A.D. It's been 15 years since the Ninth Legion went missing in the mountains of Scotland, and it's up to Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) to find out what happened. His own father was the commander of the Ninth, and by discovering what fate befell the fearless leader, Aquila could restore his failing reputation. Crossing Hadrian's Wall and navigating the treacherous highlands of Caledonia won't be easy though, especially since Aquila's only traveling companion is his British slave, Esca (Jamie Bell). Along the way, Aquila will attempt to make peace with his father's memory as he and Esca confront the savage tribes of the land and attempt to recover the lost legion's golden emblem -- the treasured Eagle of the North. Donald Sutherland and Mark Strong fill out the rest of the starring cast. Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis

Exciting and adventurous ...

As a high school Latin teacher who teaches Caesar's De Bello Gallico, this video is excellent to show in class. The girls swoon over the male actors. The Roman tradition of the relationship between master and slave is depicted. The sweeping scenes of Scotland are especially beautiful.


Good movie

This was a good movie,enjoyable way to pass a rainy afternoon. Loosely based on historical fact. Grab some popcorn and settle in.
