"The Eagle" is my #2 for the year...

...but it probably won't stay there for long. The Green Hornet is the only other 2011 release I've made it to, as I'm more interested in catching up on the 2010 awards season movies right now. The Eagle isn't especially bad, but it certainly isn't all that great. The action was disjointed and the film never figured out what it was. A historical epic? An art film? A buddy movie? I never really bought the relationship between Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell, and that's what the movie should have depended on. It's probably no surprise it had problems, since it was bumped back from its original release date last September. Basically, The Eagle is a middle-of-the-road film that does nothing you haven't seen before, and isn't particularly horrible either.
