Verdict: Wait until the DVD comes out.
Grey Travel Rating: 3/5 Stars
Special Effects: 6/5 Stars
Plot: 3/5 Stars
Acting: 4/5 Stars
Objectionable Content: Ginny asks Harry to zip up her dress, and her back is exposed. The locket taunts Ron by showing him scenes of Harry and Hermione kissing waaaaay too much. You can tell they're naked, but thankfully can't see past their necks.
One use of the D-word, H-word, and P-word.
This is honestly the best movie trailer I've ever seen.
I loved everything about it, from the battle-scenes to how they perfectly captured Roman arrogance. Plus the movie just looks so good.
I'm usually very cautious about Roman movies, because they always seem to be extremely gory. But this is based on a book by Rosemary Sutcliff (which falls into the late juvenile/YA section) and even the movie is only rated PG-13 for "Battle Sequences and Some Disturbing Images".
So yes, I'm really excited for "The Eagle".
And here's the trailer.
In a word, epic.
Here's some fantastic screenshots from NarniaWeb, incluing one of Eustace as a dragon!
Still, I'm very paranoid about how the movie will turn out.
The plot has been completely changed from saving the Narnia Lords to saving Narnia from evil...
We'll see how it turns out.
Anyway, enjoy the pictures!
