The Eagle’s not a horrible movie. Forgettable? Certainly. But too much money, talent, and effort are put into movies to call any of them horrible (my opinion).
The beautiful Channing Tatum goes from commander to quasi-invalid to taker of the impossible quest to slave to almost dead to, oh hey, completely fine and able to fight. Inconsistencies, unbelievabilities, and underdevelopment of the best character (Esca/Jamie Bell) abound, plus they eat a raw rat (yummeeee). Few non-American accents are present, and Donald Sutherland uses more contractions than I think a Roman would.
Skip this one and see The King’s Speech.
That's it! If you see The King's Speech, send me your 100 word review, and I'll post it. Unfortuantely, I don't know if I'll make it out to see that one (what with The Adjustment Bureau, Water for Elephants, Sucker Punch, Red Riding Hood, and that Bradley Cooper movie on the way), but I'm on Team Firth for next week's Oscars. :)
