Movies in Review: "The Eagle"

This film MIGHT have been ok had the casting director not made the mistake of casting Channing Tatum as the lead in this film. I had no idea, and was actually fooled by this man’s acting ability until I saw this film…he’s horrible. From the first scene, it was just wrong. They have a close up shot on Tatum, and he’s suppose to be acting like he’s looking out into the woods, but it just looks like he’s trying not to look directly into the camera…smh. And this film was set back in Ancient Rome, but everyone’s dialect made me feel like they were in the 21st century and worked out of the 78th precinct. It was just annoying hearing Tatum’s so called accent go in and out…horrible. The only good thing about this film was Jamie Bell. He should have been cast as the lead because he has way better acting chops. I feel bad that he had to play 2nd fiddle to Tatum, who doesn’t deserve lead in any other film. Tatum this was just not your role. I think you thought this would have boosted your career, but your weak performance only set you back…smh…D-

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.
