I’m not sure what bothered me the most about The Eagle. Was it that the Romans had a mix of British and American accents? Was it that Channing Tatum followed suit by having a prevalent American accent sprinkled with the occasional British tinge? Was it that the few action sequences were almost completely ruined by a shaky camera? Was it that the movie tried to be about the characters but they were really just one-dimensional and the relationship that formed between the two male leads was unfounded? Or was it that the movie was just really boring? Yah, that’s it!

Verdict: Forget It
