The Eagle.

Well I gotta say, What were they thinking! Did they even read the book? This movie was changed about 50% from the book. I’ve read the book and when I heard they were making a movie I was overjoyed, when I saw it I was over disappointed in it. the movie was so bad.
In the book there was a girl in like 50 chapters, in the movie there was no girl, in the book Esca and Marcus were the best of friends, in the movie they even had a fist fight, in the book the chief’s son was Esca and Marcus’s friend, in the movie Marcus killed him, in the book they never had any kids being killed, in the movie they showed two kids get there throat cut, in the book it only showed one of the survivors of the ninth, in the movie it had about 25-35 survivors, in the book every tribe person new that Marcus was a Roman, in the movie Esca told everyone that Marcus was his slave, in the book Esca was set free before they went on there quest, in the movie he was set free after when they were about to get killed, in the book the way that they found the survivor was that he came up whistling a Roman battle song and Marcus new that he must be a Roman, in the movie (around the end there were more than one) the what they found him was that he attacked them and they captured him.
I really didn’t like this movie. but that is because I read the book, if I hadn’t read the book I’d probably have liked it. Also I think that the actors for Esca and Marcus should have been switched to where the person that played Marcus played Esca and viceversa.
Also I wouldn’t recommend this movie to kids under 13, because there is a constent use of cussing lots of violence and two time you see people get there heads cut off, and there are to throat cutting. But if you let your kids whatch these things then I’m sure you and they’ll enjoy it (as long as you haven’t read the book).
All in all in 1 out 5 I’d give it a 2.

Thanks for reading.
