Armond White reviews The Eagle starring Channing Tatum | Film from Rosemary Sutcliff’s The Eagle of the Ninth
The Eagle is a post-9/11 action-adventure movie about what our cultures (fathers, brothers, sons) have in common. Though set at the end of the world, it’s a fiction that remembers honor, liberty and friendship as ideals. It’s a fantastic vision of how The West was One.
