The Eagle

 I’ll bet if you watched this back to back with Gladiator and 300 that you’d die of testosterone poisoning, even if you’re a woman. A Roman officer (Channing Tatum) ventures north of Hadrian’s Wall in search of the eagle standard of the vanished Ninth Legion. After a couple of hours of manly manliness, they run out of film. Some of the fight scenes are okay, which is a good thing because the picture doesn’t have much else going for it. Mildly amusing
